Rope Drums

Changing out crane rope drums or replacing wire rope is a demanding, time consuming and costly operation for any maintenance team. 

Wear can make the top surface between the grooves extremely sharp, creating the potential for cutting the wire rope. Wear in the base of the grooves results in corrugations that prevent the wire rope from twisting, pinching and damaging the rope. The answer to address both of these problems is in the material and heat treatment of your rope drum, fitting it with DIEPA special wire rope.

  • Hardened and/or Carburized between a range of 50-65 Rockwell C
  • Virtually eliminate crushing and corrugation of the rope groove surface
  • Extend the life of your wire rope
