Lesson 05: How to handle ropes correctly during unwinding and rewinding
Handling ropes during unwinding and rewinding
Rope installation must always be carried out by experienced, instructed personnel. The following points must be observed: For ropes supplied on rings, rope spools must be mounted on suitable unwinding devices, e.g. turntables or winding stands. Under no circumstances should the rope be pulled out of the ring or drum. This will introduce twists into the rope! In some rope configurations, the new rope is pulled in with the help of the old rope, etc. You can find many more hints here.
