Steel wire and wire rope are very important in today's world, which are used to hold, lift, move and pull various objects. Ordinary quality steel wire includes 1) steel wire for welding rod, nail making, mesh making, packaging and printing industry, and steel wire for cold heading rivet and screw, 2) steel wire for electrical purpose includes special steel wire for production of overhead communication line, steel cored aluminum strand, etc. 3) steel wire for textile industry includes wire for rough comb, needle cloth and needle, and steel wire for rope making is specially used for production of wire rope and spoke, 4) spring steel wire includes spring and spring washer, piano, tire Steel wire for cord fabric and transportation belt, 5) industrial steel wire for clocks and watches, ball, and free cutting steel wire for automata.

What are the main problems of these steel wires and wire ropes? Safety, quality and strength.
