Wire Rope News & Sling Technology

Industry leader in providing information to the
material handling, wire rope and sling industries and related businesses worldwide.

Established in 1979 by Ed Bluvias

Wire Rope News & Sling Technology has been serving manufacturers and distributors of wire rope, chain, cordage and related hardware; sling fabricators and related service providers for the material handling industry since 1979. We publish a bimonthly magazine and an annual Suppliers Directory. Both are available in print for subscribers and online to the general public on this website www.WireRopeNews.com.

Edward Bluvias, Sr. was the founder of Wire Rope News & Sling Technology magazine. Please download and read the article about our founder, Ed Bluvias in Remembering Edward Bluvias: A Pioneer in the Wire Rope Industry from the April 2013 issue. In April 2019 the magazine was purchased by 2D Publishing LLC and is now owned by Don Tywoniw.

Wire Rope News & Sling Technology Magazine

The Wire Rope News & Sling Technology magazine is published bimonthly by 2D Publishing LLC. Content includes technical articles, news and reports describing the manufacture and use of wire rope in marine, construction, mining, aircraft and offshore drilling operations. Cordage, slings, chain and fittings are also covered. Editorial content contains articles about fabricating companies, new products, people in the news and related invention patents.

The bimonthly magazine is published in February, April, June, August, October, and December. The magazine is issued in the third week of the published month. Insertion orders, classified, and editorial copy must be received before the 20th of the month preceding date of publication (e.g. May 20th for the June issue). The online version of our publication is usually posted about two weeks after the printed magazine is delivered, giving subscribers first access to all the the great articles, industry news and information.

Advertisers in the magazine are also listed in the Advertisers Index of each issue.

Suppliers Directory

Our annual Suppliers Directory is the leading yearly buyers guide, listing the companies that supply or serve the steel and material handling industries around the world. The directory is published in May each year. Print copies of the Suppliers Directory are sent to all suppliers listed in the directory and all magazine subscribers.
