Lightweight Crane Rope
Ropes with Dyneema® outperform steel wire rope
More and more companies in which lifting is central are realizing that there is a lightweight alternative to steel wire rope. Ropes with Dyneema® has the potential to handle higher payloads yet weigh 80% less than steel wire rope at the same strength.
Reducing time taken for maintenance and reeving
Crane rope with Dyneema® shows no stretch during lifting, is torque free, and can potential carry bigger payloads, it shows clear benefits in maintenance for both crews and equipment.
- Due to its lightweight much faster to inspect and replace
- Potential more payload, no lubrication, no fishhooks compared to steel wire rope andfurther weight reduction possible through e.g. reduced block weights
- Suited as replacement of wire rope
The first synthetic line for mobile cranes
The Samson K-100™ synthetic mobile crane line brings the advantages of synthetic fiber lines to mobile crane operators. The rope offers the same load pull and load chart as wire. It's 80% lighter than comparable wire, won't rust, and requires no lubing. It also won't kink, bird cage, or dive on the winch drum.
Exceptionally low creep performance with Dyneema® Max Technology
The exceptionally low and predictable creep characteristics of Dyneema® Max Technology extend the range of applications to long-term permanently loaded systems. Even better, the elongation is easy to model using our Creep Design Tool. This enables engineers to treat creep elongation as just another design parameter.
Dyneema® XBO Technology
Rope made with HMPE fiber already outperforms other synthetic fibers on bending performance. Now, with Dyneema® XBO Technology, HMPE ropes can have similar bending performance as specialty steel wire ropes. Result: Dyneema® XBO Technology significantly extends the service life of HMPE ropes under extreme bending conditions.
