Mining

Helping mine operators work safer, faster, and better.

Mining is one of the most punishing environments. Traditional steel wire ropes or chains used to pull, hoist, or lift in mining applications are heavy, inflexible, difficult to rig and can recoil dangerously when they break. Synthetics provide all the strength of steel, but are 86% lighter for a much safer solution.

Lightweight, flexible, and soft on the hands, high strength synthetic fiber rope solutions significantly reduce rigging time, manpower and injury risk. Unlike steel wire rope, they will not rust, corrode, or produce broken/protruding wires, and don’t dangerously recoil if broken.

Globally, Cortland is leading the development of replacing steel wire with synthetics in mining applications, helping companies such as Caterpillar, BHP, and Suncor significantly improve the safety and efficiency of their operations. And our service doesn’t end with product delivery. Ongoing technical support and training is provided to everyone involved with operating and maintaining our solutions.
