TFKable Group and POWERMITE at Electra Mining Africa show
Between 10th and 14th of September 2018 TFKable Group along with POWERMITE - our long term business partner - will participate in Electra Mining Africa exhibition organized in Johannesburg, South Africa. This is the largest Southern Africa’s event dedicated to mining industry taking place since 1972. It is an excellent opportunity to find out about the latest and greatest innovations and technologies, the leading products and services, and the most cutting-edge machinery, equipment and solutions. Worth mentioning is also the advice from technical experts and the knowledge gained from free-to-attend seminars.
TFKable Group will be presenting its innovative line of reflective cables. The main objective of this innovation was to obtain the effect of higher visibility of mining cables in underground mine galleries or during night-time works in surface mines. Increased visibility allows to limit the risk or mechanical damage to which the cables are exposed when connected to the mining machines and dragged on ground behind them. In case of low visibility cables are often subject to run-overs by heavy machinery resulting in their damage and expensive operation stoppages. Safety or workers is also affected in such case. Highly visible reflective cables made by TFKable Group help to minimize these risks.
“Reflective cables of TELE-FONIKA Kable brand ensure long and safe operation thanks to the combination of key characteristics of polyurethane outer sheaths applied in them, that is, very high resistance to mechanical damage, and the increased visibility of cables provided by the reflective effect. As a result, the line of reflective mining cables is characterized by 5 times higher resistance to abrasion, 2 times higher tensile strength, 2 times higher resistance to tearing and up to 8% lower weight of the outer sheaths in comparison to rubber cables. Our new cables increase safety and reduce the costs of mining operations thanks to higher resistance to mechanical damage and, in consequence, longer lifetime,” underlines Paweł Staszewski, Sales Director - Mining, Industry, Oil&Gas
The key to achieve success in implementing this innovative solution was to combine effectively polyurethane, characterized by very high mechanical strength parameters, with the reflective materials applied. In result we obtained a new type of sheathing for mining cables.
We have been developing the Africa market over the past 5 years and have recently seen some great success with the range of TPU Mining Cable in both Botswana, Zambia and Nambia. Due to the cables superior properties and the arduous working conditions we see this range as a viable solution for customers to save costs on cable replacements” says Mike Allnutt CEO of Powermite’
Electra Mining Africa 2018 taking place biennially hosts this year around 700 exhibiting companies from all over the world. Past editions gathered even up to 35 000 visitors. During the event there will be free-to-attend seminars with 5 different topics for each day: The Future of Skills Development, New Products Showcase, South African Day, Safety Day, Diversity Day.
