Our heavy industry brochure:

Standard ropes often do not meet the high requirements of many applications of wire ropes. Higher demands for rope lifetime, breaking strengths, rotational stability, flexibility, structural stability and spooling behavior can only be fulfilled by special wire ropes. It is for these reasons that many engineers and end users resort to verope® special wire ropes. verope® also offers rope end fittings and customer-specific solutions tailored to the heavy industry.
