      International Mine Contends With Cable Corkscrewing

      coal-mining-cable-solutions

      PROBLEM:

      An international silver and copper mine faced with an aggressive growth plan was experiencing cable failures on their drilling jumbos due to the corkscrewing motion present during the tunneling process. Drill jumbos are seen most often in underground mines where drilling and blasting are present, or when rock hardness prevents typical tunneling machines to be used. When this South American mining customer realized they were replacing their cable too frequently on multiple jumbo drilling machines due to abrasion, they knew it was time to explore something a little more reliable that would resist tearing.

      TPC SOLUTION:

      With both short- and long-term goals being impacted by these failures, our international field specialist listened carefully to this customers concerns and suggested our 2/0 Super-Trex® 600 Volt Welding Cable as a longer-lasting solution. Our Super-Trex line of products is known for its specially compounded, security yellow TSE jacket rated for 600 Volts. In addition, this product family offers superior first-line defense against all types of harsh industrial and environmental conditions with resistance against flame, heat, and the elements.

      RESULT:

      By switching to a TPC product, this customer went from replacing cable multiple times on multiple machines to once during a 14-month period. That means a total of $8,300 saved in product and labor costs, but more importantly, 244 production hours SAVED – one step closer to meeting their current, and future goals.
