Bridon-Bekaert’s rope is designed for some of the world’s most demanding applications in numerous industries—all of which call for specific rope requirements.
Rope is made of three elements—the core, wires, and strands. The art of making rope is very old, but the complexities of wire rope characteristics, which increase strength, and resist rotation, bend fatigue, abrasion, crushing and corrosion, make rope a complex machine.
For every industry, every application, and every customer’s unique needs, we offer a solution. Our portfolio consists of steel, synthetic and hybrid ropes and advanced cords.
Steel & Hybrid Ropes
Bridon-Bekaert provides steel wire ropes for every industry, including onshore and offshore oil & gas, underground and surface mining, cranes and industrial, structures, fishing and marine, cableways and forestry.
The hybrid rope, developed by Bridon-Bekaert in response to the ultra-deep depths of the oil & gas and underground mining industries, where wire rope gets heavier as it gets longer, offers the advantage of combining the robustness of steel and weight saving properties of fibre. As modern fibres are as strong as steel but significantly lighter and more flexible, replacing some of the rope’s steel components with fibre is beneficial to increase payloads and productivity.
ScanRope, Bridon-Bekaert’s synthetic fibre brand, is an advanced range of products that are designed specifically for demanding applications, boasting high efficiency, increased safety, cost-effectiveness, and high performance.
