Wire rope is a type of cable which consists of several strands of metal wire laid (twisted) into a helix. The term cable is often used interchangeably with wire rope. However, in general, "wire rope" refers to diameters larger than 3/8 inch (3.6 mm). Sizes smaller than this are designated cable or cords. Today steel is the main material used for wire ropes.
