System for rolling steel cables used by the mining shovels, with a capacity of 150 meters.
Steel cables are used for lifting the buckets. Given the intensity use of the shovels in extraction jobs, cables must be changed even before their lifetime has ended.
Given the amount of cable falling into disuse is considerable through time, areas for discarded cable generate real cemeteries, with the great environmental impact. It is necessary handle the cables in disuse on a safe way. To solve this situation FMA has successfully developed an equipment to manipulate the cable, roll it and transform it into a compact and safe roll. This rolling equipment for steel cables works autonomously, not depending on an equipment carrier and having a diesel engine that provides the required power. The carrier equipment is a truck, only used to transport it to the work area as required.
