Lifting of offshore structures, power plant jobs, nuclear work, infrastructure projects and windmill erection call for cranes that reach increasing heights. With these increasing heights and subsequently increasing boom lengths also weight increases. On long boom cranes weight is essential. By using lightweight crane pendants from Fibremax, made with Twaron aramid fiber from Teijin Aramid, a significant weight reduction over steel of more than 80% can be achieved.

Pulling together for stronger crane pendants

Reducing weight on crane pendants will have the following advantages:

  • Added lifting capacity                                                                            
  • Longer booms                                       
  • Downsizing of construction details
  • Extended service life
  • Easier and faster installation
  • Easier and lighter transportation

Light weight crane pendants from FibreMax are available in any break load, diameter and length. With the highly automated innovative endless winding production process it is possible to produce crane pendants that are fully customized and adapted to customer's requirements. All FibreMax crane pendants are in accordance with requirements for crane manufacturing as specified in standards EN 13000, FEM 5.004 and ISO 4308-2.

About Fibremax

FibreMax lightweight precision cables are produced by using an unique and one-of-a-kind production process. All cables are produced with Endless Winding technology which is a totally automated process of continuous winding of parallel strands of fibres around two end fittings until the right cable strength or required cable stretch has been reached.
