Bending-Fatigue Failure of a Steel Wire Hoisting Rope for a Stacker Crane
A 13 mm diam 18 x 7 fiber-core improved plow steel nonrotating wire rope, brought into service as a replacement for 6 x 37 improved plow steel ropes, failed after 14 months of service on a stacker crane. The change was reported to have been caused by difficulties twisting of the 6 x 37 rope. The hoist arrangement for this crane was found to consist of one rope with each end attached to a separate drum and the rope was wound around two 30-cm diam sheaves in the block and back up around an equalizer sheave. The rope section...
