What is Steel Cable used for?

One of the most useful types of wire ropes available is steel cable. Thin, flexible, and extremely strong, this type of wire rope is used for various purposes. A braided wire has steel wires twisted into one another, usually between eight and twenty-eight times. Because these wires are intertwined, they provide greater flexibility.
