Rope Drum

Although Xtek offers a full range of rope drum material and heat treatments, our TSP carburized rope drums virtually eliminate maintenance on the drum and significantly improve the performance of your wire rope.

Design Advantages of XTEK (TSP) Rope Drums:

  • Carburized and hardened to 60-65 Rockwell C
  • Virtually eliminate crushing and corrugation of the rope groove surface
  • Extend the life of your wire rope

Xtek's products provide more predictable wear and reduce your maintenance expense.

Xtek is a manufacturer of custom machined and heat-treated parts and component assemblies for heavy-duty industrial applications. They provide engineering and metallurgical expertise to solve the toughest power transmission and material handling equipment problems faced by our customers in steel mills, aluminum mills, shipyards, utility plants, and other industries throughout the world.

Since 1909, they've built a reputation by improving the metallurgical properties of steel, and therefore the quality and durability of the parts they manufacture. XTEK engineers developed the Tool Steel Process (TSP), a special heat-treating process that significantly improves the strength and durability of machined components. XTEK uses this TSP process, and other forms of heat treatment, to produce critical components such as brake wheels, track or crane wheels, overhead crane parts, and sheave wheels; gear couplings and u-joints; mill gearing and mill pinions and custom gears; pinch rolls, forged work rolls and other special purpose processing rolls.
