Experiences with Fibre Ropes as Hoist Ropes in Crane Applications
High strength polymer fibres are opening new fields in regard on their strength to weight ratio. In 2009 Liebherr and Teufelberger started a development partnership to utilise these opportunities and rethink the basics of hoist ropes for cranes: (1) Introduction; (2) The high strength fibre rope soLITE; (3) Load bearing capacity of the rope; (4) Liebherr fibre crane series; (5) Discard criteria.
