Case Studies

      We have been extremely pleased with a variety of products TPC has brought to the table. TPC’s engineers provided us with a custom-designed solution that was extremely flexible and which has held up incredibly well over time. Since the custom assembly was installed a few years ago, the cable has shown no sign of damage, we’ve had no breakdowns, and we’ve made zero repairs.

      CUSTOMER PROBLEM:

      One of the world’s leading makers of tissue, pulp, paper, packaging, and building products was having problems with the cable powering its crane grapples in a wood yard. Logs would repeatedly snag and tear up the cable. For each instance of failure, the cost to replace cable was $201 in parts and labor plus 2 hours of downtime. Because the issue was occurring every 2 months across multiple units, the expenses added up significantly over time.

      TPC SOLUTION:

      The TPC representative suggested Super-Trex® Type W Yellow Portable Power and Automation Cable, which is rated for extra hard usage and has excellent resistance to abrasion, impact, tearing, and most industrial chemicals. It features no-wick reinforced synthetic fillers that add tensile strength, improve flexibility, prevent wick-up of liquids, and act like a shock absorbers to reduce damage from impact. Live-flex ribbed EPR prevents kinking and breakage due to twisting and flexing, resists dry rot, and offers high dielectric, tensile, and mechanical properties. The heavy-duty TSE double-pass jacket delivers first-line defense against industrial and environmental abuse.

      CUSTOMER’S RESULT:

      In service for at least 30 months, the total expense for TPC’s solution for 2 units was just $2,560 in parts and labor. TPC was able to save the customer a startling $18,140 during that time and increase production time by 60 hours!
