ACSR conductor strands

Bekaert’s wires or strands for ACSR conductors are made from galvanized, low carbon, steel wire. They are suitable for reinforcing overhead power conductors. The wire is used as either single-center wire or processed into a multiple wire strand. To help your production process, our  advice and support wherever you are located.

Powering up your operation
Bekaert overhead power conductor cores consist of 7or 19 high-carbon, class A galvanized steel wires that can be left or right stranded.  Our wire helps create an ACSR conductor that can span extra-long distances without mechanical detriment.  It is the result of a high strength-to-weight ratio combined with low elongation.

Customized solutions and personal approach
Bekaert ACSR strands are provided on wooden drums for a smooth installation. For customers with stranding capabilities, Bekaert offers wires on coil and spoolless cores. Our global team of experts is at your disposal to provide advice or support. To guarantee the uncompromised quality of our products, all Bekaert ACSR wire conforms to several internationally recognized standards, including ASTM B498, AS 3607, BS EN 50189 and IEC888.

Safe and durable solutions
Our wires and strands for ACSR conductor coatings provide corrosion resistance and thermal conductivity. The Bezinal® coating is best for conductors that operate at higher temperatures.  Your high-voltage power lines will operate at a higher capacity.

Automotive rope wire

Bekaert’s range of automotive rope wire helps create ropes that are flexible yet strong. They are suitable for both mechanically and electrically operated rope systems in cars, motorcycles and bicycles. The coating and packaging help create a smooth production process on double-twist stranding machines.

Balancing all the right properties
Bekaert offers a full range of fine galvanized and brightly phosphated rope wires. This range of wires is the combination of excellent fatigue properties with high ductility. They feature optimized bending fatigue, corrosion resistance and low elongation.  Bekaert rope wires are highly resistant to wear, rust, abrasion or high temperatures.

Assuring a smooth production process
The sleek coating surface of the wire and the adapted packaging help create a smooth production process on double-twist stranding machines.

Elevator rope wire

Our elevator rope wire is made from bright phosphated and redrawn galvanized wires. They are designed for use in traction- and deflection sheaves. Featuring high tensile strength and excellent ductility, the wire helps increase the service life of your rope. Meets EN-10264-2 specifications. The wire is customizable to your project.

Assuring your performance
Bekaert has a full range of elevator rope wire of bright phosphated and redrawn galvanized wires. They are ideal for the creation of elevator ropes because of their high tensile strength and excellent ductility. On the rope level, these properties lead to optimal fatigue performance. The wire can increase the service life of your rope and reduce your rope’s maintenance.

Meeting your requirements
The smooth coating surface of the wire, and the adapted packing they come in, helps your production process run smoothly. They are suitable for double-twist stranding machines. Bekaert elevator rope wire meets the standard EN-10264-2 specifications. Our global team of experts can also help customize the properties to your specific requirements.

Creating a reliable tension member
The quality of the steel wires used for elevator cores has a substantial impact on the service life of the rope. When running over the traction- and deflection sheaves, the wires in the rope are exposed to high tension- and flexural stresses, causing friction which will result in abrasive wear. Our elevator rope wire’s excellent mechanical properties are a solution for these issues.

About us

Company details

What we do
Transforming steel wire and applying advanced coating know-how. That is what we are good at.
Improving both the bulk and surface properties of steel wire products since 135 years. That is what we do better, every day.
Offering innovative solutions that add value to our customers and help them grow their business. That is what makes us better together.

We purchase approximately 3 million tons of wire rod per year as our basic material. Depending on our customers’ needs, we draw wire from it in different diameters and strengths, even as thin as ultrafine fibers of one micron. We group the wires into cords, ropes and strands, weave or knit them into fabric, or process them into an end product. Depending on the application, we apply coatings which reduce friction, improve corrosion resistance, or enhance adhesion with other materials.

Where we are
We are present wherever you are. Backed by Bekaert’s global presence and technological support, customers can benefit from our commitment to local service. You can rely on a worldwide manufacturing footprint and sales network that is responsive to specific market needs. This way, you get the most from our global reach: our expertise, our flexibility, our proximity.
 
How we work
Better together sums up the unique cooperation between Bekaert and its business partners. We create value for our customers by co-creating and delivering a quality portfolio of steel wire solutions and by offering customized services in all continents. We believe in lasting relationships with our customers, suppliers and other stakeholders and are committed to delivering long-term value to all of them. We are convinced that the resilience, trust and integrity that bring our 30 000 employees worldwide together as one team, form the fundamentals of sustainable and successful partnerships, wherever we do business.
