Chock Winch Ropes
What they are:
Short Superflex cables with an all steel eye termination in one end and a plain compression sleeve on the other end. They are fitted to the winches of the chock moving machines in long-wall mining operations.
What they do:
They enable the winch to pull the chocks onto the forks during long wall mining operations. The bifurcated eye termination can accept Yellow Pin Shackles of equivalent strength. These are size 29 X 32 for the Eight/0 cable and size 38 X 41 for the Ten/0 cable.
Why are they used:
They are flexible, strong and the bifurcated eye termination is very compact, as it replaces the old old bulky thimble and ferrule which was used before Andromeda developed this fitting.
As well, the assembly is all steel, which is needed in underground mining operations.
