More cost effective and safer mining ropes
Less downtime and less maintenance
Steel wire ropes used in mining need to be changed often. Mining rope with Dyneema® delivers the same performance at a fraction of the downtime. It's also lighter, so easier to handle. It's just as strong. It needs less maintenance. It absorbs vibrations. And it's safer.
Synthetic ropes made with Dyneema®: Unmatched reliability, safety, and productivity
Ropes made with Dyneema® focus on increasing mining productivity and safety, while reducing cost of operations. They are proven to outperform the steel wire ropes they replace. In mines that have switched to ropes made with Dyneema®, users report that properly used ropes are much safer to handle and increase operational efficiency. The result is unmatched reliability, safety, and productivity.
Higher payloads and longer service life with lightweight synthetic pendants
Following thousands of tests and years of development, Applied Fiber and WireCo WorldGroup have introduced a suite of lightweight, impact-absorbing synthetic pendant solutions for terminating large and critical rope systems. The key enabling technology: Dyneema® DM20 XBO fiber.
Better for productivity, efficiency, and safety
Ropes with Dyneema® last as long as SWR but are much quicker to replace (less downtime), and easier to handle (much safer). Ideal for draglines, electric rope shovels and work ropes.
Why Dyneema® beats steel in Mining
Whether it's suspension rope, hoist rope, dump rope, drag rope, or trip rope, ropes made with with Dyneema® are better than their steel wire rope equivalents in every way. Get the story at a glance with our Dyneema® in Mining infographic.
