Swaged ropes are produced by reducing the diameter of a regular round rope by compacting it. Swaging provides additional stability to rope shape and creates surface-to-surface contact between element wires. By packing more steel into a smaller diameter. The swaging process produces a superior strength to diameter ratio and breaking that is higher than traditional rope while also offering greater resistance to drum crushing, scrubbing and similar wear.
