Powerlines developed new bronze cast fittings

Powerlines developed new bronze cast fittings :The components are made of an aluminium-bronze alloy in a special permanent coquille mould. The special casting method,in which the molten alloy is poured into a permanent coquille via an entry spout at the top of the mould, guarantees a perfect surface and homogenous material structure. German foundries, which are subject to highest quality standards and a continual quality control, were contracted for the moulding process. The assembling of the new cast fittings is carried out at our manufacturing base in Essen.

The cast alloy components for the D-55 double rod cantilever are an innovative development in the SPL overhead line system.The gap between the rods using the new components is 140 mm and as a result the bending moment has been enhanced. The new products are compatible with catenary systems throughout Europe.

The connecting clamps, the eye fittings and hinge clevis can be Combined in a number of ways to facilitate adaption to each customer’s requirements. The cantilever can be attached directly to the cardan joint of the mast, thus eliminating the need for any other components. This is a clear benefit for Powerlines’ customers, compared with the products of other competitors.Similarly, the cantilever holding rope can be hooked up directly to the cantilever without any additional components. The variety of possible combinations means the implementation of a triple rod cantilever can be achieved with ease.

For sure, all of our parts have been checked in independent Test-laboratories and have gotten all necessary Type-Testcertificates.
