Lesson 01: Transporting and unloading wire ropes with care
Correct transport of rope reels
Learn how to transport and store verope special wire ropes correctly. The handling of wire rope reels requires a certain degree of caution. The reel should therefore be unloaded from the loading area either by means of a fork lift, where the reel is lifted by means of a sufficiently dimensioned shaft as attachment points for the forks, or by means of an overhead crane as described in the picture below. The wound reel of wire rope should be moved as described before. Reels can easily be knocked over by the forklift which may damage both the reel and wire rope, so it is not advisable to do so.
