The Top 3 Benefits of Stainless Steel Wire Rope

When it comes to choosing the right wire rope, you need to ensure you choose the materials best suited to meet your application’s needs, while also being sensitive to budget. This requires working with the right stainless steel wire supplier that meets ISO 9001 requirements. Stainless steel wire rope manufacturers like Carl Stahl Sava Industries know that it is cost-effective, strong, durable, corrosion-resistant, and heat resistant. This makes stainless steel among the more popular cable rope materials that Sava works with precisely due to its wide range of applications and affordability. 

#1 Cost-Effective 

Stainless steel wire rope suppliers often recommend it over other cable construction materials because of its cost-effectiveness. But what’s interesting about stainless steel stranded wire is that its affordability, as compared with more expensive alternatives like tungsten for example is rooted in its low maintenance, longevity, availability and ease of use and installation. Therefore the material’s mechanical malleability, including its lifespan, combined with how readily available it is, makes stainless steel ideal in many use cases.

As a stainless steel wire rope supplier & manufacturer Sava typically works with industry-standard stainless steel, such as 303, 304 and 316 stainless steel. However, we can work with any stainless steel a customer needs, and through our stainless steel wire fabrication process we provide a product other wire rope manufacturers, suppliers, and stainless steel wire rope factories cannot. We are a wire rope supplier of over-the-counter stainless steel cable and manufacture an entire family of cable fittings to create your custom cable assembly.

#2 Strong

Another reason stainless steel is an industry-standard is because of stainless steel wire rope’s strength and durability.  It is an exceptionally strong wire.

For example, Grade 301 and 304 stainless steel possesses a tensile strength of up to 1300 MPa in strip and wire forms. Galvanized steel, with a tensile strength of up to 550 MPa, comparatively, makes stainless steel remarkably strong. 

Consequently, stainless steel has a long lifespan, although not as long as tungsten due to the latter’s tolerance of more intense temperatures. Even so, stainless steel is effective in a wide range of applications over many cycles, making it ideal across many applications.

As mentioned, tungsten is preferable in extremely hot environments that require a long life span, because it heats up quickly but dissipates the heat equally as fast. However, stainless steel can perform at these same levels of extreme heat and at a lower cost, but over less cycles. But that it doesn’t last as long as tungsten under extreme conditions doesn’t rule it out. For instance, if you have an operation that needs a high lifecycle, but it’s not being used as frequently, stainless steel mechanical cable might be perfect. If cycles are less frequent, then it’s possible stainless steel will last as long as the application requires and again, under the same hostile temperatures that gives tungsten all the glory. 

So, while tungsten certainly has its benefits, stainless steel mechanical cable is a strong alternative that will provide similar, if not the same, results for most applications.

#3 Easy to Work With

Another feature that makes stainless steel cable advantageous is that it’s easy to work with, compared to other materials. It is very easily formed, especially in the small-diameter wires inside the cable as well. What’s more, stainless steel mechanical cable is also easy to lay into the appropriate shape when stranded. 

When the stainless steel cable is manufactured with a nitinol core, the results possess seemingly magical easy-to-use properties. Known as a memory alloy, nitinol “remembers,” so-to-speak, the shape it was in, allowing the stainless steel cable housing the nitinol core wire to traverse winding and twisting pathways like arteries and other narrow vessels. In such surgical applications, this nitinol core wire is the center of the stranded cable otherwise comprised of stainless steel. So when paired with nitinol, stainless steel cable becomes a flexible, memory-based solution for a wide array of medical devices that use medical cable assemblies, and medical grade stainless steel wire. But as nitinol is not used to comprise the entire stranded cable used in these elegant medical devices, stainless steel remains the best material to work with when bending is critical, but cost is equally important.

Corrosion Resistance 

If your application requires sensitivity to corrosion, such as weather or water, salt or otherwise, stainless steel cable is an excellent choice. The material’s tolerance of harsh environmental conditions ensures the cable can take a beating over a long period of time by moisture. Comparatively speaking, galvanized steel, another steel cable Sava manufacturers, is vulnerable to applications where corrosive variables are present, like marine or submerged saltwater uses.

Stainless steel is not only used in construction and, manufacturing. it is a well-suited metal for the medical industry. Medical industry products require extra inspections to pass the standards. stainless steel in one of the metal that stands out the tests and provide the best result. The medical industry has a high requirement for sanitization and cleanliness. that’s the reason you will find stainless steel in the hospital environment.

Corrosion Resistance

Stainless steel in know for its corrosion resistance property. when it comes to the medical industry, equipment having rust is dangerous to the patients and a small infection can create very serious medical problems. stainless steel solves this problem very well.


How durable stainless steel is?
Stainless steel is a product that is used in many industries. like construction, automobiles, aerospace, nuclear reactors and these are the industry require the most durable materials. The medical industry is not an exception. Equipment created with it is very durable in the usage of medical industries. some examples are structures, beds, wheelchairs and more.


Stainless steel does not have any Antimicrobial property still, with the help of sanitization solutions you can remove any type of contaminants and sterilize with ease. the medical equipment manufacturer is working on creating self sanitization coating that will available in the near future. Types of equipment like Sheers, Scissors, Needles, Surgical grills & grinders, Cardiovascular clamps, Tissue grabbers are great examples for it.

Broken ankle, knew, of the foot, arms, doctors use it as an implant in the form of pins screw and rods to make the injury heal better.

Stainless Steel In Dental Industry 

An alternative to titanium stainless steel used in various forms in the dental industry. Due to low cost and high performance, many dentists use stainless steel in dental implants.
