O.S.H.A. and ASME B30.9 require that all wire rope slings be tagged with the name or trademark of the manufacturer, the rated capacity for specific configurations and the diameter or size of the sling. Under no circumstances shall a sling’s rated capacity be exceeded.
The user should maintain this identification so that it is legible during the life of the sling. All persons using the sling should read the tag and understand the information on it.
Advantages of wire rope slings:
Two major characteristics of wire rope slings are flexibility and resistance to abrasion. In general, these traits are a direct function of the number of wires in the component wire rope. Fewer wires means larger diameter wires, with better abrasion resistance, better resistance to crushing and reduced flexibility. More wires result in decreased wire diameter, reduced resistance to abrasion and crushing but increased flexibility and kink resistance.
