Surface mining is considered as an extremely harsh and demanding environment. Surface mining relies strongly on the availability and effectiveness of the key assets, such as draglines and rope shovels. Depending on the size of the equipment and the type of material being mined, the hourly loss of revenue resulting from inefficient operations, failure or unplanned maintenance is considerable. Boom suspension pendants on draglines and rope shovels are submitted to a large number of tension cycles which influence the service life and can cause unnecessary maintenance downtime and lack of production time.
