Special project: Dyneema with three eyes
Rope Factory G. van der Lee has secured a special project: the manufacture of Dyneema fibre, with an extremely specialised finish. The finished lengths of Dyneema were to be provided with three eyes. This meant that multiple, differently-sized lengths needed to be produced and finished. All segments were then spliced together, with two combined lengths of almost 70 metres per rope remaining.
The Dyneema will be used at a wind farm to hoist components through the wind turbines. The third eye serves as a safety feature, securing the fibre rope temporarily, so that in the event of an unforeseen situation everything doesn’t snap back.
