WIRE ROPE

We are India's oldest USHA MARTIN LTD associate and distributor. Offering you the best Wire Ropes in the world.

E. E. Karachiwala & Co. have specialised in supplying multi stranded ungalvanised and galvanised steel wire rope since 1911. We stock from 0.5mm up to 103mm in various constructions including 1X19, 7X7,6X19, 7X19, 6X36, 8X19, 8X26, 18x7, 19X7 and 35X7 with both Fibre Core and Steel Cores. In addition to these conventional steel wire ropes we can offer special wire ropes from high quality manufacturers.

Most wire ropes operate in demanding conditions and must resist crushing, bending fatigue and abrasion. We recognise that it is vital that all of our wire ropes need to perform to the highest levels to maximise service life therefore increasing productivity for the end user. With our technical experience we have worked hard with our partners to ensure that all material is manufactured to the very best standards in the steel wire rope industry. 

Each steel wire rope can be supplied fully assembled complete with end terminals such as a thimble eyes, swaged ends and wedge sockets as well as many other solutions. These cable assemblies are manufactured in house by our team of engineers complete to your specifications. 

All material is certified and has full traceability in line with our ISO9001 procedures.

6x19 construction wire rope is available with either FC (fibre core) or WSC (wire strand core). When supplied with a wsc the rope is more commonly referred to as 7x19. The rope is very popular in diameters from 3mm to 16mm and is used on a variety of applications. 6x19 FC and 6x19 WSC (7x19) is very flexible in diameters 3mm to 6mm and is used for many requirements where wire ropes are running over pulleys.

• Industrial door cables
• Garage door cables
• Where cables are required to run over pulleys
• Control cables
• General engineering applications

• Gym equipment cables
• Wind turbine
• Wire rope slings
• Whip checks
• Winch ropes

6x36 is a flexible general engineering wire rope readily available in galvanised and ungalvanised coatings. The wire rope has an equal lay construction (warrington seale) and achieves a superior breaking load to the 6x19 construction range. The construction has been designed to give a flexible rope with a good fatigue life. A 6x36 wire rope is available with either FC (fibre core) or IWRC (independent wire rope core) and is used for a wide range of applications, examples of which are shown below:

• Wire rope slings
• General engineering applications
• Crane ropes
• Hoist rope
• Winch ropes
• Holding and closing ropes for grab cranes

• Tow ropes
• Luffing ropes
• Pursing wires
• Mooring ropes
• Lifeboat falls
• Wire rope rigging applications

Superior Elevator & Lift Application Wire Ropes, with multiple Tensile designations & Core types. Used by OEM's and by Maintenance and Repair customers.

19X7 is available in both galvanised and ungalvanised finish. The construction family includes 18X7 and 19X7. For further flexibility and other performance characteristics we also supply 32X7, 34X7, 35X7 and 37X7. 
Example of applications for non-rotating wire ropes include the following

  • Crane rope

  • Main hoist rope

  • Whip hoist rope

  • Pillar crane rope

  • Deck crane rope

  • Offshore crane rope

35X7 is available in both galvanised and ungalvanised finish with either ordinary or langs lay. The construction family includes 34X7 and 37X7. 
Depending upon your requirement for higher breaking load or better wear characteristics, these wire ropes are available in different finishes and lubrications as well as being available with plastic impregnated or in compacted constructions.
