Dynamica Ropes has a great experience when it comes to splicing of ropes manufactured with Dyneema® and offers professional splice guidance for those who are interested in learning the old craftsmanship of rope splicing.
Why is a good splice important?
Ropes made with Dyneema® have a slightly higher strength than a steel wire of the same dimension while being 7 to 10 times lighter in weight. When splicing a rope, it will always lose strength, but a professional splice made by our experienced Riggers only reduces the breaking strength of the rope with 10%. But remember – only a correct splice will secure that the reduction is only 10%!
You are always welcome to contact us if you want to book our riggers for your splice jobs. Mail: [email protected] or phone: +45 76225015. If you and your team are interested in professional guidance where you learn the theoretical aspects of rope construction and the process of rope manufacturing, Dynamica Ropes is always ready to assist you.
Professional splice guidance by Dynamica Ropes
Dynamica Ropes offers professional guidance where you and your team will learn the theoretical aspects of rope construction and the process of rope manufacturing, which is necessary in order to be able to splice correctly. Dynamica Ropes riggers master several different splice methods, and you have the opportunity to decide the focus. For example, we are experienced in the following splice methods:
- Brummel Splice: Recommended for ropes with a diameter of 2 – 28 mm
- Quick Splice: Recommended for ropes with a diameter of 2 – 28/30 mm
- Tuck Splice: Recommended for ropes with a diameter more than 28/30 mm
- Splicing of cover material (for example eye cover)
When learning to splice it is important to have a general fiber knowledge about Dyneema®, which all DYNAMICA ropes are manufactured with. The fibers are classified as the strongest man-made fiber in the world and are delivered from DSM in Holland. The fibers are strong and light, but special care during manufacturing and handling is necessary to secure a long lifetime of ropes and slings made with Dyneema®.
Important information: You have the opportunity to prove your splicing skills. If you and your team are visiting Dynamica Ropes for professional splice guidance, we usually finish by break testing the rope spliced by yourself, to let you know whether your splice was correct.
Maximum load in our Test Bed is 500 t and the maximum test length is 35 m. The test machine has three different cylinders to secure precise test result (10 t, 50 t and 500 t). You are welcome to read more about the in-house Test Bed.
Our Riggers are located at our production facilities in Denmark, Fredericia where they are ready to guide you to achieve the perfect splice. They will try answering all your questions, demonstrate how to splice and show the most common mistakes. If needed we can also supply you with video guides or PDF manuals, that step by step explaining how to achieve a splicing that ensures a minimum loose of the breaking strength. Finally, we are always willing to demonstrate the strength of our products in our in-house Testbed with a capacity of 500 t and you have the opportunity to demonstrate what you have learned from our Riggers when testing your own spliced rope using our test facilities.
