Surface mining is considered an extremely harsh and demanding environment. It strongly relies on the availability and effectiveness of critical assets, such as draglines and rope shovels. Depending on the size of the equipment and the mining material, the hourly revenue loss due to inefficient operations, failure, or unplanned maintenance is considerable.

Boom suspension pendants on draglines and rope shovels are submitted to many tension cycles, influencing service life, unnecessary maintenance downtime, and lack of production time.


Boom pendant solutions

Our synthetic lightweight boom pendants from FibreMax can withstand tension fatigue and offer up to ten times higher service life than steel wire ropes. We can customise our pendants to your requirements and machine types. Our FibreMax pendants offer advantages by being maintenance-free, light weighted and easy installation handling.

Lightweight pendants, like our FibreMax solution, will increase your productivity, reduce maintenance costs, as well as operational costs.


For each

Dragline cables

Dragline cables are essential excavating tools used in many surface mining operations worldwide. Draglines are highly productive machines operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with an average operating life of 40 years.

Rope shovel cables

Besides removing overburden, rope shovels are used to dig and load materials in surface mining. Rope shovels are used in iron ore, coal, lignite, gold, and potash mining. Rope shovels are highly productive machines in a demanding environment that operate 24 hours a day, seven days.
