Present and Future of (Not Only) Rope Making Technologies. Chapter 1. Present Times
Chapter 2. Future: Bright or Otherwise?
Chapter 3. Technologies With Mission
Principles (part 1) Recyclable raw material recourses. Renewable material or spare part recourses. Reusable or recycled packaging material. Educational activities aimed at end user to really help in “production- distributor-end user” product cycle.
Principles (part 2) Sophisticated technologies for gaining maximum performance from minimum material used. Sophisticated chemicals for biodegradability. Manufacturer’s involvement in local environmental issues. Manufacturer’s involvement in keeping the climbing or caving environment in tact.
Members And Links
Benefits Much higher transparency of involvement in environmental issues. Being part of larger projects where voice of one is too weak, but joint force of more companies is useful tool in negotiation. Possibilities of help with sometimes- straightforward unseen solutions or help with complicated issues.
Chapter 4. First Steps In Wolf´s Footprints
Step 1 Processing of production-waste multifilament PA6 fibre (ropes, cords, webbings) Processing of multifilament PA6 fibre from used products (ropes, cords,webbings) and making secondary products from it Future prospects of recycling of multifilament PA6 fibre (making new from old)
Step 2: Pioneering Brand New Technology Dynamic ropes
Technology Description Dynamic ropes
Sheath material reduction Dynamic ropes 8,3%
10 Tons PA6 Savings Potential Dynamic ropes
Pioneering Brand New Technology Static ropes
Performance Increase ø10,5mm 35kN strength 22kN strength in the figure 8 knot 72 g/m weight Static ropes
10 Tons PA6 Savings Potential Static ropes
Progress of PA6 Tenacity Over the Years , cN/tex 1965, cN/tex , 80 cN/tex Since 1985, cN/tex Future, cN/tex ?
