For mining and tunnel drilling, Nexans provides Sweden's Atlas Copco with cables that can resist shocks and sheathing tears, while delivering high tensile strength. Korea's Hyundai Heavy Industry uses Buflex cables on its heavy cranes.
Nexans delivers this cable to diverse reel and crane manufacturers, including Delachaux (for motorized reeling drums).
Gottwald, one of the world's largest rail mounted gantry (RMG) crane manufacturers turned to Nexans for high-stress rubber cables for two new railway terminals in Switzerland and Italy for the rapid loading and offloading of containers.
The German steel factory, HKM Hüttenwerke Krupp Mannesmann uses this newly developed type in their overhead cranes because it can handle high tensile stress without being affected by EMI.
When Germany's Stemmann received an order for crane for a new Chinese coal-burning power plant, it chose this kind of cable which had the advantage of winding a longer length on one drum to accommodate long crane movements.
