Rope Analysis

Answering your wire rope questions

The Konecranes Rope Analysis is designed to provide expert consultation to answer your wire-rope- and rope-reeving questions. The analysis targets individual concerns such as rope selection, rope life, component failures, unexpected rope behavior, accident investigation or improvement opportunities, including recommendations on extending rope and component life.

Using proprietary 3D modeling and calculation tools, we provide an engineering assessment, calculation and inspection of your ropes and reeving components. The rope life calculation is based on the EN 13001-3-2:2014 standard.

Rope life estimate and recommendations

We provide expert consultation and can give you a calculated estimate of rope life, recommendations for rope selection or rope reeving geometry improvement to target a variety of issues. The Rope Analysis can also be used to investigate a rope failure.

Benefits of Rope Analysis

  • 3D simulation of the rope reeving provides a clear view of issues or concerns
  • Can offer recommendations for extending rope life in current or future use
  • Can give information that can be used to improve rope behavior
  • Can provide rope failure insights with a failure investigation report
