In the traction-drive-system of elevators, wear of the components traction sheave and steel rope depends on a number of wear processes.
The level on which these processes do appear depends on several factors of influence, sucn as contact pressure, creep of the rope over the sheave, the existence of abrasive particles, the use of lubricants and material properties such as structure and hardness.
These factors finally determine the lifetime of the components.
