We experienced some failures with some of our armored cable runs and decided to give TPC’s 6/4 Super-Trex® a trial run and now we have installed close to 4,000 feet of this cable while experiencing zero failures.

Case Study: Wood Yard Saves $18k, Adds 60 Production Hours Using TPC’s PP&A Cable Rated for Extra Hard Usage

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!
