WireCo launched the new line of Union Gladiator pendants, designed to improve the service life of shovels and draglines by 10 to 15 times over traditional technologies. The pendants are made with synthetic fibers that increase service life by absorbing loads and reducing vibration, the company said.

Fully recyclable, main boom pendants feature the Union Uni-Hatch Inspection Port, for tool-less inspections. Gladiator Ropes offer 10 to 15 times the service life or wire rope or strand, the company said.
