We sell three basic structure of G316 Stainless Steel Wire Rope in common use with a 3.2mm Diameter denoted by the follow expression AxB where "A" refers to "the number of bundles" and "B" refers to "the number of fibres".  So 7x7 wire has 49 fibres arranged in 7 bundles of 7 fibres.

The number of fibres  affects the durability, flexibility, abrasion resistence,  weight and cost - even though they are all made of the same material.

The trick is to use the right  structure for the right purpose.

Below, the Structures  of the Wires are discussed in terms of their characteristics and their suitability for applications.
