Applications Minging Underground


SWOS’s high-strength, lightweight synthetic rope products are improving the safety and efficiency of underground mine sites all over the world. We work directly with mining companies to assess rigging applications for their particular site and only recommend top quality solutions that will reduce downtime, injuries, and cost over time.

Improved Safety at Mine Sites

Our synthetic rigging solutions outperform wire ropes. At one seventh of the weight of wire, mining companies are experiencing fewer injuries while increasing speed of production and longer service life. Synthetic solutions, including towlines for long wall mining and dozer ropes, allow for ease of handling without compromising the strength or capacity needed for rough mining environments.
