Knowledge of proper handling of cables is imperative to ensure that the cables serve their purpose for long periods of time without any problems. We bring in our expertise to benefit our clients so that the storage, installation and transportation of cables is handled in a hassle free manner.
The tension in the wire, the way the cable is bent or the way the cable is mounted on the winch all play a crucial role in determining the performance and durability of the cable. The cable should be placed on a jack or winch before use with great care. This allows for the easy turning out of the reel which in turn will make it possible for the paying out of the cable without any hindrance. A minimum distance of twenty feet has to be there between the pay off reel to the take up reel has to be maintained so that the cable is straightened out before being placed on the other reel. A balance of cable tension has to found while handling the cables. Excessive tension on the cable can lead to a lot of problems and may cause lot of performance failures. When the cable is damaged it puts the performance of the product at jeopardy and may trigger premature failures. When you use the proper cable hauling equipment then you can transport the cable without any damage.
