06.15.2021 Wire Rope
Among rope diameters, there is the nominal diameter and actual diameter (diameter actually measured) and, in principle, for JIS G 3525 (called to as JIS herein) the standard number (JIS Z 8601) is employed.
On the other hand, as shown in Fig. 10, the actual diameter is the measurement of the circumscribed circumference and is expressed in mm.
The tolerance on rope diameter shall be +0 +10% for the diameter less than 10mm and +7% 0% for that equal to or more than 10mm, according to JIS. This company is making ropes with a diameter of up to 200mm, depending on the construction of the rope.

The length of the rope is generally set at 200m, 500m and 1,000m but a longer length can be made on request.
On the other hand, ropes that weight up to 120 tons are being made, depending on the construction of the rope.
