Wire ropes and chains are important mechanisms for transmitting tensile loads where flexibility is needed. As with any metal to metal contact system where relative motion exists, wear is an important consideration. This presentation will discuss the geometry of wire ropes and chains, wear tendencies and methods of lubrication and maintenance.
