Cortland, the leading provider of high performance rope and assemblies, cables and umbilicals, is to exhibit at Asia-Pacific’s international mining exhibition (AIMEX) 2015, held at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Australia, from 1-4 September 2015.
Cortland products made from its flagship Plasma 12 strand HMPE rope offer a range of time saving and safety benefits to its users.
Plasma can be used for lifting, towing and most types of rigging as a replacement for steel wire rope.
Cost savings can be substantial and come from decreased rigging time due to the fibre rope’s lightweight properties, which can lead to reduced personnel participation.
Safety is enhanced through ease of handling and snag points when compared to wire rope alternatives.
This isn’t Cortland’s first venture into the Australian market, as Chris Battel, Cortland’s APAC Commercial Manager commented.
“Cortland (formerly known in the market as Jeyco) has been servicing the oil and gas and mining industries in Australia and the wider region since 1992. Delegates at this year’s event will be able to speak to Cortland’s experts about its range of synthetic fibre ropes and broad range of applications.
“For us, the mining industry represents an important market we’ve had close contact with for many years. We’ll be showcasing our product range to operators involved in large plant and machine operation, maintenance and mine efficiencies.
And, as an international company the importance of having exposure to consumers on a global scale is more than important, it is essential. Cortland has been benefitting the oil and gas industry globally through our expertise.
“With the same leading solutions, we also intend to have a continuing positive impact on the world’s mining industry through offering safer and economical alternatives to traditional steel componentry.”
