Abstract Synthetic fiber ropes, which are lightweight and have high tensile strength and flexibility, have attracted attention as an alternative to stainless steel wire rope. This study clarifies various physical characteristics of synthetic fiber ropes to design a tendon-driven mechanism and this paper focuses on creep of ropes. We first designed and constructed a creep testing machine for ropes. Second, we performed experiments with three types of synthetic fiber ropes and one stainless steel wire rope. As a result, in stainless steel wire rope, creep was not observed. In addition, Polyarylate(PAR) fiber rope and Poly-phenylene-Benzobisoxazole(PBO) fiber rope have much higher creep resistance than Ultra High molecular weight Polyethylene(UHPE) fiber rope.
