Full Lock Coil, Z-Lock

A powerful, high strength rope for deep shaft mining applications.

Full Lock Coil, Z-Lock for deep shaft mining is a high strength, low stretch, stable, non-rotating rope. With its characteristic Z wires, designed to prevent unlocking, its smooth outer surface makes it highly compatible with sheave linings (drum and Koepe). Z-Lock ropes can be designed and manufactured to be compatible with specific drum grooves.

Advantages

Precision engineering

Our engineers continuously strive to optimise rope performance and safety, enhance operating efficiencies, reduce costs and extend service life.

High fatigue performance

Engineered for overall performance, the tensile strength of FLC’s interlocking Z wires is key to this rope’s superior fatigue resistance.

High ductility wires minimise the occurrence of internal wire breaks caused by dynamic stresses.

Long service life

With its characteristic steel Z wires, designed to prevent unlocking, the FLC Z-Lock has an exceptionally smooth outer surface making it highly compatible with sheave linings and resistant to friction, abrasion and fatigue.

Cost effective

High ductility wires minimise the occurrence of internal wire breaks caused by dynamic stresses, improve performance and extend service life.
