Description

Fiber ropes have have a 10 times higher breaking force than steel wire ropes at the same mass. They also have a very high bending stiffness compared to fiber ropes. For that reason steel wire ropes are much more difficult to handle and have a high risk of injury while handling. Those problems are increased by the megatrends Silver Society and demographic change. Older people have a reduced physical condition in comparison to younger persons. This increases the risk of accidents at construction sites. Global urbanization causes in addition a boom in building construction. There will be more people who need a safe and easy to handle lifting equipment on construction sites in the future. The invention "HERO - Heavy load winch with pressure shoe mechanism for fibre ropes" enables this.
