According to the formula of wire rope bearing capacity, metallic cross-sectional area is the basic variable that affects the bearing capacity of in-service wire ropes. For a new rope or a rope in good condition, its metallic cross-sectional area and safe bearing capacity are positively correlated. Accordingly, the technical principle for TCK inspection instruments is to find a standard value of the target rope’s metallic cross-sectional area, and then use this value as the reference for detecting and evaluating the variances of metallic cross-sectional area of the whole target rope. The purpose is to find the rope’s largest value of loss of metallic cross-sectional area. By comparing the detected values with the reference value, it achieves quantitative evaluation of the target rope’s safety status.
