Steel wire and wire products - Steel wire for ropes - Part 3: Round and shaped non alloyed steel wire for high duty applications

This part of this European Standard specifies round and shaped non alloyed steel wire for use in the manufacture of ropes for mine hoisting, man-riding haulage, cableways for the transportation of passengers and other high duty applications. This part of this European Standard refers to round wires and three types of shaped wire: full lock (Z), half lock (H) and trapezoidal (T). In addition to the requirements of this part of this European Standard, the requirements of EN 10264-1 also apply. It does not apply to steel wire taken from manufactured ropes. This part of this European Standard specifies the following for cold drawn non alloyed steel wire for ropes for high duty applications:
- dimensional tolerances;
- mechanical characteristics;
- requirements relating to the chemical composition of the steel wire;
- conditions to be satisfied by any coating.

Stahldraht und Drahterzeugnisse - Stahldraht für Seile - Teil 3: Runder und profilierter Draht aus unlegiertem Stahl für hohe Beanspruchungen

Dieser Teil der Europäischen Norm legt runden und profilierten Draht aus unlegiertem Stahl zur Herstellung von Seilen für Schachtförderanlagen des Bergbaus, Personenbeförderung, Seilbahnen für Personen-beförderung und andere hohe Beanspruchungen fest. Schwere Beanspruchungen bestehen in den Fällen, in denen beim Einsatz hohe oder stark schwankende Spannungen auf das Seil wirken.
Dieser Teil der Europäischen Norm betrifft Runddrähte und drei Arten von Profildrähten: Z-Drähte, Taillendrähte (H) und Keildrähte (T).
Zusätzlich zu den Anforderungen dieses Teils dieser Europäischen Norm gelten auch die Anforderungen von EN 10264-1.

3 Designation of the product

The designation of wire for ropes manufactured in accordance with this European Standard shall be based on

the nominal dimension, surface appearance and tensile strength.

The indicator of dimension for round wire is the nominal diameter; for shaped wire it is the value of the height

(h), followed by a letter specifying the profile. In the case of H profiles, this indicator shall be followed by the

value of the narrowing.

The surface appearance is indicated as defined in EN 10264-1 with U for uncoated or bright wire, with a letter

indicating the class of coating (A, B, …) and in the case of zinc alloy coatings, indicating in brackets (Zn/Al).

EXAMPLE 1 2,0 mm wire for rope with thick zinc layer, class A, tensile strength grade 1 570 MPa, in accordance with

EN 10264-3.
Designation: wire for rope EN 10264-3 – 2,0 - A – 1 570.

EXAMPLE 2 Wire for rope, trapezoidal profile, h = 3,5 mm, class B zinc coated, tensile strength grade 1 770 MPa, in

accordance with EN 10264-3.
Designation: wire for rope EN 10264-3 - T3,5 - B – 1 770

EXAMPLE 3 H shaped wire for rope h = 3,0 mm, w = 1,8 mm, coated with class A zinc alloy, tensile strength grade

1 370 MPa, in accordance with EN 10264-3.
Designation: wire for rope EN 10264-3 - H – 3,0 ×××× 1,8 - A (Zn/Al) – 1 370
4 General conditions of manufacture

The drawn wire shall be manufactured from rod in accordance with EN 10016-1 and EN 10016-2 for ropes for

static applications, and in accordance with EN 10016-1 and EN 10016-4 for ropes for dynamic applications.

The drawn wire shall show no surface defects or internal defects prejudicial to its use.

When specified, the drawn wire shall be supplied with a coating applied by a hot dipping or electrolytic method.

The coatings commonly used are zinc or Zn95/Al5.

Unless otherwise specified, the zinc used for coating shall have a purity of 99,9 %. Other zinc alloys may be

agreed at the time of enquiry and order.

NOTE If required by the purchaser, the quality of the zinc or zinc alloy used for the coating material (zinc or zinc

alloy) should be certified by the manufacturer. Because of the reaction between the base material and coating material,

which is inherent to the process, the composition of the coating on the wire is different to that used in the coating bath.

5 Characteristics of the wire
5.1 Tensile strength grades
The tensile strength grades are defined in Table 1.

NOTE The nominal values are the minimum tensile strength limits. The upper limits (maximum) are equal to these

minimum values increased with the tolerances specified in EN 10264-1 Table 1.

5.2 Profiles
5.2.1 Definition of shaped wire

For shaped wire, the characteristic sections of the wire are shown in Figure 1 for full lock Z, half lock H and

trapezoidal T wires.

The nominal dimensions and tolerances shall be agreed between the supplier and the purchaser at the time of

ordering. The conventional characteristic values are as follows:
h height: difference between the radii of the 2 concentric boundary circles.

b width: maximum width of upper part perpendicular to a radial line passing through the centre of the width

(as shown in Figure 1).
w minimum narrowing: is the smallest width of the profile.

e distance taken diagonally across the transverse section of the profile (essentially trapezoidal or T profile).

The designation of a full lock wire is established using the letter Z and the height (h), that of a half lock wire by

H followed by the height (h) and the minimum narrowing (w) (h x w) and that of a trapezoidal wire by the

letter T followed by the height (h).

Table 2 gives the design criteria for the shaped wire shown in Figure 1. These are the relation between the

height of the shaped wires and the other major characteristic dimensions.
