Q8

Endurance is everything. EVOLUTION Q8 – the high-performance hoisting rope for harbour cranes and industrial applications – impresses with its exceptionally long service life and high breaking strength. Due to its innovative outer compaction. EVOLUTION Q8. Lasts much longer!

Benefits

  • Highest service life (up to + 40%)
    Compared to conventional and similar products, our new EVOLUTION Q8 exhibits, in the test lab as well as in practical use, a service life until reaching the discard criteria, which is up to 40% longer, especially with single-layer winding.
  • Higher minimum breaking force (approx. + 5%)
    Due to an innovative rope design in combination with compacted outer strands, the breaking strength was increased considerably compared to conventional 8x25 steel ropes (approx. + 20%) and vis-à-vis competitor products (approx. + 5%).
  • Best performance with multi-layer winding
    As a result of the compacted outer strands, EVOLUTION Q8 is ideal for multi-layer winding – even under difficult conditions. This permits its long and faultless use in permanent operation and helps reducing downtime to a minimum.

NOTE!

Our rope recommendations are non-binding empirical values. Please be sure to take the special characteristics of your installation into account. Do not hesitate to contact us. We will help you find the best possible rope solution for your needs.

Langs lay ropes may be used with multi-layer winding (on the drum) only, or they must be subjected to periodical checks by an expert.

Other diameters are available on request.
