Mine Safety Tether Kit

The Challenge

A customer in the mining industry requested that we manufacture the safety tethers for miner safety kits. The aircraft cable is a tether that’s included in miner safety kits, used to harness up to six people during emergency evacuations.

The Solution

To create the tethers, the high strength cable was coated in a bright color for added visibility, cut to length, swaged, and assembled to the hook. The length of the assembly and swage dimensions were measured during the first article inspection and submitted to the customer for approval. Inspections were also performed during the production process and after final assembly to ensure all safety tethers complied with the customer supplied specifications.

The Results

The ability of Lexco® Cable to provide custom wire rope projects allowed us to complete this project in only one week.
