The creation of
Founding of SmartRigging2004
SmartRigging was founded to offer synthetic rigging solutions for super yachts and racing boats. The fight against metal fatigue has started.
Founding of FibreMax2009
FibreMax was founded to bring the fight against metal fatigue in the industrial application segment.
On the 31st of January, 2020, FibreMax broke the world record for the strongest cable using TWARON aramid fibres and our endlessly wound cables with incorporated end terminations. This resulted in a beast of a product, achieving an MBL of 17.020kN, fitted explicitly for Liebherr Offshore Solutions.
Off the grid2021
Since the beginning of 2021, FibreMax has been producing 100 per cent green. Thanks to the 3000 solar panels on the roof of our production facility, we produce three times more energy than needed for cable production and office work.
To create the strongest cable in the world, FibreMax invented the Endless Winding Robot. This robot is not only unique but also patented, with more than 16 associated world patents. To ensure no splicing, glueing or braiding, the Endless Winding Robot winds our fibre strands in parallel lines around custom-made end terminations.
The world's strongest
cable in the world
In 2020 we officially made it: we broke the world record for the strongest aramid cable worldwide! We subsequently received a request from Liebherr to create aramid cables for a gigantic fly-jib used in their HLC-295000 crane.
After 1.5 years of research with the fibre supplier Teijin and DNV-GL, cables as light, strong and durable as possible have been created. We scored a world record on the first attempt: the cable achieved 17.020 kN!
GREEN PRODUCTION FACILITY
Today’s crane business focuses on heavy lifts at increasing reach and heights. Lifting offshore structures, power plant jobs, nuclear work, infrastructure projects and windmill erection all call for cranes that reach increasing heights. But these increasing heights, and subsequently increasing boom lengths, also mean that weight increases too.Read more
2. Renewable Energy
Renewable energy sources are increasingly sought after. In a drive to reduce the carbon footprint of energy production, both governments and utility companies have been investing time, effort and lots of money in the development of green energy sources. An additional drive for developing alternative sources of energy is political, as countries that depend on imported energy seek independence from countries that sell their natural resources for financial gain and political influence.Read more
