With loads getting heavier and deadlines tighter, today’s crane operators are constantly facing the challenge of how to increase their productivity.
Traditional steel ropes are extremely heavy in large quantities, which reduces the maximum lifting capacity for any crane. Ropes with Dyneema® are incredibly lightweight – 80% lighter than steel wire rope at the same strength – which give cranes the potential to handle higher payloads. Ropes with Dyneema® have a longer service life so fewer rope changes are needed. Furthermore ropes with Dyneema® show no stretch during lifting, are torque free, and require no lubrication or produce ‘fishhooks’ like steel wire rope.
80% lighter than steel wire means increased crane capacity and less downtime
It reduces the number of rope changes, thus improves crane availability
Ropes made with Dyneema® do not create ‘fishhooks’, meaning safer handling and reeving
Traditional indoor hoists with steel chains or from steel wire introduce steel particles and oil pollutions. However, a hoist rope with Dyneema® DM20 fiber is easy and safe to handle due to its soft touch, flexibility and lightweight to increase productivity and improve load handling.
Our premium fiber rope partner, Teufelberger, has developed together with Liebherr the high-strength fiber crane rope, soLITE®. soLITE® is a high strength fiber rope made with Dyneema® for challenging lifting applications. The rope has been developed for use on tower, mobile and crawler cranes – delivering superior performance in load capacity, safety, and durability.
Dyneema® SK78 fiber is renowned for its quality, consistency and performance. This has resulted in an Approval of Manufacturing Certificate by DNV GL, and in Type Approvals by Bureau Veritas and ABS. If you want to know more about our certifications, please contact us.
