torneado de cables (derechos o izquierdos)

Los cables utilizados para la tracción en guinches están compuestos de hilos individuales de alambres de acero que a su vez se unen en paquetes. Para mantener la unidad funcional, se tornean mientras se fabrican. El torneado puede ser diestro o siniestro. En equipos importantes los cables que se oponen en la tracción forman pares de torneado opuesto para eliminar problemas.
