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.
Our engineers continuously strive to optimise rope performance and safety, enhance operating efficiencies, reduce costs and extend service life.
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.
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.
High ductility wires minimise the occurrence of internal wire breaks caused by dynamic stresses, improve performance and extend service life.
Every demanding situation requires a rope with specific performance characteristics. The following properties are a key feature of Full Lock Coil, Z-Lock.
The properties and values illustrated for each rope are our standard specifications. Bespoke options and adaptations can be manufactured on request.
The outer layer of interconnecting Z profile wires give the Full Lock Coil, Z-Lock rope an extremely smooth outer surface that is suitable for Koepe friction winders and drum winders.
