Stranded Wire

Custom Stranded proprietary wire products.

Celebrating 40 years of innovation

Stranded WireAnother popular type of wire rope that we manufacture here at Jersey Strand and Cable is stranded wire. We create stranded wire, which we sometimes call wire strand, by stranding together individual wire filaments into strands, and then wrapping them helically around a core to make rope.

So, stranded wire is made up of: wire filaments, strands, and a core. We define strands as multiple wires that are laid together helically and symmetrically arranged with uniform pitch or lay.

Wire strand has a lot to offer. It is flexible, strong, great for support and lifting mechanical loads, and it holds up well in the face of tension, vibration, and movement. Made from the right metals, wire strand can be a great conductor of electricity, and useful in telecommunications.

Wire strand is also highly customizable. For example, stranded wire changes per the thickness of its strands. In general, the smaller the wire filament diameter, the more flexible the stranded wire. Meanwhile, the thicker the wire filament diameter, the stiffer the stranded wire.

Some of the many industries that rely on our stranded wire products include: aerospace, electronics, defense, automotive, chemical, communications, healthcare, and security.

Our Stranded Wire

At Jersey Strand & Cable, we offer stranded wire with a wide range of strand counts, wires per strand counts, pitches, lays, lengths, widths, and materials.

We offer stranded wire in different joining arrangements including: concentric stranding, unilay stranding, rope lay, and more.

Some of the stranded wire constructions we most often manufacture include:

  • 1 x 3 (1 set of 3 wires bundled together)
  • 1 x 7 (6 wires wrapped around 1 center wire)
  • 1 x 19 (12 wires laid around 1 center 1 x 7 strand)
  • 3 x 7 (3 sets of 1 x 7 strands bundled together)
  • 7 x 3 (6 sets of 1 x 3 strands cabled around a 1 x 3 center strand)
  • 7 x 7 (6 sets of 1 x 7 strands cabled around 1 center 1 x 7 strand)
  • 7 x 19 (6 1 x 19 strands cabled around 1 center 1 x 19 strand)

Every wire strand configuration offers something different. For example, small diameter stranded wire, like 1 x 3 stranded wire , is highly strong for its diameter. In contrast, other stranded wire configurations, like 1 x 7 or 1 x 19 stranded wire ropes, have more flexibility. Wire strand products like 1×3, 1×7 and 1×19 are perfect for push-pull applications.

Some of the many materials we use to make stranded wire include:

  • Stainless Steel (corrosion resistant, strong, economical)
  • High Carbon Steel (extremely strong, wear resistant)
  • Brass Plated Steel (strong, perfect for applications that require rubber adhesion)
  • Copper Clad Steel (strong, ideal for applications that require strong and conductive materials)
  • Copper Alloy (perfect for electronic applications)
  • Brass Alloy (aesthetically pleasing, strong, durable)
  • Bronze Alloy (aesthetically pleasing, strong, durable)
  • Nickel Alloy ( perfect in high temperature environments and highly corrosive environments)
  • Titanium Alloy (ideal in applications requiring light strength, biocompatibility, and/or specific corrosion resistance)
  • Aluminum Alloy (works well as lightweight, low-density electrical conductor)
