  • Mackay engineering firm, ZEMEK Engineering, produces both cast and fabricated rigging components for draglines

    ZEMEK Dragline Rigging Components


    With an enviable safety record to maintain, ZEMEK recognised the significant capital and manpower costs of wire ropes being re-socketed and changed so frequently on most draglines buckets in the Bowen Basin. Consequently a new straight line drag socket was developed that ensured that drag lines could at least double the life of drag wire ropes in all operating environments. Benefits of the new Dragline Sockets - Case Study   provide a quick way to remove wedges and pins whilst maintaining safety standards. 

    In addition to dragline rigging, ZEMEK also supplies shovel parts.
