In conventionally designed wire rope, strands of different layers are arranged in a way that they cross at angles. Such a design causes nicking in the wires of adjacent strand layers. Nicked wires will break prematurely, and if not detected, can lead to core failure during service.

Certain PYTHON rope constructions feature our LongLife rope design that avoids internal wire and strand crossings. As a result, the wire rope provides superior fatigue resistance and therefore extended lifetime.

An added benefit for LongLife enabled PYTHON rope is their extremely high breaking strength. LongLife increases the metallic cross section area (fill factor) which results in breakloads significantly higher than in other constructions.
