The core ropes are made up of Natural or manmade fibres which enable firm cushioning to the wires, maintain the rope structure and provide internal lubrication. To know better about the industrial ropes the engineer should have the clear understanding of the terminologies like Rope Diameter, Length, Layout type and its Dimensions, Tensile Strength, Type of Core used and Strands.

Selection and Quality of Materials
Before manufacturing of the industrial ropes, it is necessary to decide the dimensions and the core of the cable. Firstly the raw material is selected for the steel wire, fibre/core and the lubrication for both wire and core. Determine the Diameter, length, weight and tensile strength of the Steel wire. The Core use of the cable can be made up of natural fibres like Jute, Manila or Manmade fibres like polyethylene or polypropylene.
