LIn the demanding world of the logging industry, the name of the game is highest strength and longest life. And that’s where LKS excels. No matter where the logging operation is in the world, we can deliver tough, compacted, consistent Logging wire Rope to our distributors and their end customers.
Swaged logging wire rope is made by compacting regular wire rope into a smaller, denser diameter. Density is key, because the higher weight per foot is what produces the increased strength and toughness you get with swaged logging wire rope
Our tried and tested forestry ropes are usually peened in order to generate a higher metallic cross section and thus higher breaking forces, and in order to create as smooth a rope surface as possible. In particular in rocky terrain, this offers fewer contact surfaces that can be damaged. The use of peened ropes is also advantageous with multi-layer winding on rope winches. Furthermore, the service life of the rope can be significantly increased by special lubrication which, in particular, substantially reduces friction and corrosion.
