Rope application technology

What makes steel ropes into steel ropes from PFEIFER? More alternate bends per crane? More profitability in cargo transhipment? More innovations for industrial applications? All of that is true, but there are other reasons.

More knowledge of the requirements of the most diverse fields of use, for example. More knowledge about the life of the wire rope in rope drives and machines. More choice of in-stock products. More ideas for manufacturing and end connections. And finally – more answers to even your most outlandish questions. On application, technology, availability or service.

You could also say: it is more passion for the wire rope that makes the application solutions from PFEIFER so unique all over the world.
