This year at AIMEX 2013 in Sydney, Bridon International is exhibiting its latest technological innovations in dragline and hoist ropes, including the Bridon Big T Bristar dragline rope, the Tiger 24 LS for underground shaft hoist applications, and the company’s shovel rope products - the Zebra, DuraCore and Tiger Blue ranges.
AIMEX 2013 will be held at the Sydney Showground from August 20-23 with at least 600 exhibitors across a total exhibition area of more than 45,000 square metres.
Following Bridon’s recent launches of a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, Bridon Neptune Quay, and the world-leading Bridon Technology Centre, the products that Bridon is exhibiting at AIMEX 2013 will demonstrate the company’s position as global technology leader in the manufacture of rope solutions.
Bridon’s recently unveiled dragline rope, the Big T Bristar, has been engineered to withstand the most challenging of dragline applications in open-pit mining and deliver dramatic improvements in productivity for end-users. The Big T Bristar benefits from a unique fluted shape plastic encapsulated core, high breaking load due to Dyformed outer strands, elimination of grit and dirt, reduced internal friction, increased bend fatigue, delivering operators excellent resistant to wear and exceptional service life.
Bridon’s Tiger 24 LS hoist rope has been developed to deliver the lowest possible cost per tonne hoisted. The linear contact between wires in the rope’s inner and outer strands reduces internal nicking and minimises torque values, delivering high flexibility, reduced internal fretting and superior cycle count.
Bridon was originally formed in 1924 from an amalgamation of wire rope producers, the earliest of which date back to the late 18th century. Bridon was acquired by Melrose PLC, a specialist manufacturing investor listed on the London Stock Exchange in 2008. With global operations in all of its key markets, Bridon is now a major supplier to key industries throughout the world.
