Future Fibres launches TorqueLite 2.0
Future Fibres launched its TorqueLite 2.0 at METSTRADE 2016.
The cable is a ‘complete evolution’ of the company’s TorqueLite, designed for those that require greater performance and better handling when removing and stowing cables away.
The cable has twice the torsional stiffness, halving the number of turns required to start furling sails and it also has half the bending stiffness. As the company points out, typically increased torsional stiffness comes at the expense of coilability and ease of handling.
However it claims its newly developed proprietary construction method halves the minimum coiling diameter while increasing furling stiffness, making it easier to drop the cable and stow it away.
In addition, a new lamination method and lighter torque material allows for a 20% weight reduction with the cable designed to provide the same lifespan.
