Rope end connection for high modular fiber ropes – secure fastening of ropes to structures, their adjustment and release
This innovative rope end connection makes it possible to connect a high modular fiber rope to a structure in a simple and safe way, and also to release it again. It is also possible to adjust the rope length on site or to quickly replace ropes or connectors. Thanks to an adaptable, simple design - in combination with additive manufacturing in particular - an almost ideal power transmission is achieved and at the same time an inadmissibly high clamping force is avoided. Thanks to rapid prototyping, individual solutions for the most diverse designs can be realized.
In a wide range of technical applications, ropes need to be fastened to structures and removed again. Flexible solutions already exist for wire ropes; however, they have not been available in the field of high modular fiber ropes.
- Simple and low-cost production and scaling through additive manufacturing
- Flexible handling as well as simple release and adjustment
- Secure fastenings for various rope types
- No damage to the rope, both rope and clamp can be reused
High modular fiber ropes are becoming increasingly popular in fields such as lifting and cranes as they have many benefits compared to conventional steel rope for certain applications (light weight, tight bend angles, can be used under water). The new clamp connection can significantly support this development. This technology could be particularly interesting in the field of hoists as a precise matching of rope lengths is decisive here.
