Hybrid Ropes
HYBRID ROPES: High Strength and Light Weight

Steel and fiber combination rope where the fiber is an integral load bearing member. As strong and robust as a steel rope but lighter with superior bending fatique life.

Bristar Tiger Blue

Revolutionary 8 strand rope with Bristar technology for shovel.

Revolutionary core design
Increases performance over competing ropes
Unbeatable annual savings
Cutting edge continuous improvement

Tiger 24 LS PI

The Tiger 24 LS is the most robust rotation resistant hoisting rope with superior performance on friction hoists. With a PI intrusion of the core, the rope reaches excellent diameter stability when high thread pressure becomes an issue.

News & Innovations

Hybrid Ropes
Several years ago, we started the development of a hybrid rope for special hoisting solutions. Driven by the needs of our customers in the mining industry, our innovation and technology teams have focused to create a next generation rope. And they did with our hybrid rope!

The hybrid design brings the best of both worlds: the strength and abrasion resistance of steel and the high fatigue performance of fibres in a lightweight construction due to high modulus specific grades. By offering these higher strength, lower weight ropes, we can provide underground mining customers with a competitive and safe edge in their operations, which, according our first calculations, can result in the increase of productivity because of higher payload in each cycle, starting typically with a minimum of 10%. Our first field trials clearly indicated an increased lifetime of the hybrid rope which eventually led to an uptime in operations.

To achieve this innovative hybrid rope we worked closely together with a selection of top high modulus fibre producers.

Many field trials have been performed over recent years with positive results.
