When the fiber core of the wire rope is damaged or the steel core (or the inner rope strand in the multi-layer structure) is broken, resulting in a significant reduction in the rope diameter, the wire rope shall be scrapped. Minor damage, especially when the stress in all strands is in good balance, may not be obvious with the usual inspection method. However, this situation will cause the strength of wire rope to be greatly reduced. Therefore, if there is any sign of internal minor damage, the inside of the wire rope should be inspected to find out. Once the damage is proved, the wire rope shall be scrapped.
