Increasing demand for high-performance equipment and variety of machines in the mining industry calls for flexible cable solutions.
Cables are used for the power supply of mining equipment such as excavators and material handling equipment while pipes are used to transport material such as ore, minerals, slurry, water and chemicals.
Poor management of cables and hoses can impact production and lead to safety-related issues at the mine site.
Selecting the right cables, hoses, and pipes improves the operational efficiency of underground and open-pit mining operations. Abrasion and corrosion-resistant, durable, and reliable products reduce maintenance costs.
