Unique eight-step production method
Our eight-step production method is the most efficient way of producing performance and high performance
1. Endless winding of the cable
After the required length has been programmed, the computer calculates the amount of fibres and number of loops required for the specified cable.
During production of the cable, all fibres keep the same tension through the fibre tension control system
2. Compress the cable
Using a very strong and lightweight braid, the fibre bundles are compressed to the minimum diameter without damaging the fibres.
This allows Aramid Rigging to produce the thinnest cables around and reduces cable windage.
3. Sealing of the cable
An ultra-thin (0.1mm) lightweight and high-quality heat shrink protects and seals the fibres inside the cable.
Our specially engineered low-frequency shrinking robot seals the complete cable, at the same time ensuring that the diameter is as small as possible.
4. Protect the cable
Aramid Rigging protects cables against chafe, using a lightweight and super-smooth Aramid braid.
5. Impregnate the braid
A special coating improves the properties of our protective braids.
While this coating is normally transparent, it can also be coloured according to your wishes.
6. Cast the cable end fitting
Our 3D aluminium moulds are designed to deploy our vacuum injection PU system to seal
the end fittings. This ensures that they are waterproof and characterised by maximum strength and flexibility, as well as a long lifespan.
7. Testing the cable
A rigorous quality control system means that all cables produced by Aramid Rigging are stretch-tested before shipping, with a length measurement accuracy of 0.1% in terms of length and force.
This allows us to double check specified cable properties.
Each shipment includes a stretch test, installation and maintenance certificate.
8. Shipping of the cables
We ship rigging all over the world using top carriers such as UPS, TNT, FedEx and DHL.
All use a track-and-trace system so that
we can carefully control delivery schedules.
A special heavy-duty box has been designed to protect the cables during transport and storage.
All Aramid Rigging stays are labelled yellow at the top for easy installation.
