K-100 hoist rope features high strength to weight ratio, bend fatigue durability, and robust spooling capabilities.
High performance fiber rope technology revolutionizing the crane industry.
Samson has leveraged fiber, coating, and rope construction technology from multiple industries it serves to create K-100. Designed specifically for use on mobile cranes, K-100 hoist rope features high strength-to-weight ratio, bend fatigue durability, and robust spooling capabilities.
The combination of high-performance synthetic fibers provides strength similar to wire rope with over 80% in weight reduction. The high strength of these high-performance fibers allows the rope to meet the maximum line pull requirements with a 5:1 safety factor. A proprietary coating has been added to K-100 to improve rope performance in cyclic bend over sheave applications inherent on mobile cranes.
