The quality of the rope is largely dependent on the purpose and strength requirements for potential application or usage of the rope. The production material of the rope also contributes largely to the tensile resistance. During manufacturing, processors must be keen to ensure that these quality requirements are met, because of the safety requirements of ropes in industry.

The manufacturing process involves bundling flexible fibers, which are twisted and braided together to increase the strength of the rope. Some applications of ropes include towing, carrying and lifting heavy objects. Modern manufacture of ropes utilizes synthetic materials that have been discovered which have greater tensile strength and longevity. Resistance to rotting is also an important factor in the production of ropes. It is also important to note that over 60% of ropes market is applied in fishing and maritime activities.

Ropes, also referred to as cordage can be classified based on their diameter. Those under 0.5 cm diameter include sisal twines, clothes lines, sash cords or even marlines. Diameters of approximately over 1.5 cm are regarded as a true light duty rope. Cordage of diameter greater than 3.8 cm is referred as a medium duty rope. Large diameter ropes are used for very heavy applications and are referred to as hawsers. They are used for towing of large ships and ships anchoring.

They may be manufactured from processed natural fibers (yarn) or made from synthetic materials, spun and extruded into filaments which are then used for rope making. Some of the synthetic fibers used include nylon, sisal, aramid and polypropylene. Out of these materials, aramid is the strongest and also very expensive.

For the basic manufacturing process, the fibers and filaments are made into yarn. They are then twisted/braided or plaited according to the type of rope being made. Yarn is passed through register plates then into compression tubes which twist it to the desired direction and finally form three strands of the yarn.

Natural fibers must be lubricated with natural oil and fed into machines which eliminate dirt, straighten the fibers, and comb them off with steel toothed combs. The strands go through a set of combs to produce a sliver. Several of these fibers are grouped together in a process called doubling or throwing. This process is similar for synthetic fibers which align more easily.

This type of machine operates through a circular weaving technique. The basic technique is that bobbins of rope pass one another in sinusoidal tracks allowing the braiding machine to form. Automatic machines have advanced with time and use programmable logic controls for the operation of the machine.

Rope making machines have continued to have high demand in the industry. This is due to continued demand for ropes especially in the maritime industry. Advances in the technology of construction of this machine have led to improved quality of the final products as well as faster manufacturing and production times.
