Cranes in steel mills have primarily one thing in common: unscheduled downtimes of the cranes entail huge costs, and cases where backup cranes are available are rare. EVOLUTION Q9 XT is extremely reliable and guarantees long lifetimes, thanks to this rope construction's excellent performance under reversed bending cycles. And that even in the case of twisting caused by the reeving system. The PLASTFILL® insert ensures permanent lubrication of the core and exceptional longevity. Used on request, the special Pro Active rope lubrication with heat-resistant grease provides permanent lubrication even in high temperature environments.

Benefits of EVOLUTION Q9 XT:

  • High resistance to external influences such as twisting, fleet angles, and small d/D ratios
  • Highest cost-effectiveness thanks to this rope construction's excellent performance under reversed bending cycles and the radially elastic 4-strand core
  • Long lifetime in complex reeving systems with many bends and large fleet angles causing twisting in the system
  • Safety, reliability, and added resistance to internal corrosion, even at high operating temperatures, due to the use of galvanized high-quality wires and the permanent lubrication of the core provided by the PLASTFILL® insert
  • High resistance to mechanical wear and damage
  • High flexibility of the rope construction results in excellent longevity - especially in single-layer spooling systems
