Correct measurement of rope diameter
Learn how to correctly determine the rope diameter of a verope special wire rope. To determine the exact rope diameter, a measuring device designed for this purpose must be used. The measurement must always be made over the crests (outer envelope circle of the rope). Measuring in the strand valleys falsifies the result considerably. In the case of ropes with an uneven number of outer strands, care must be taken to ensure that the measuring surfaces extend over several strands.
