“We went back to first
principles with the range.
We really looked at the
product function and mine
site requirements, and not
what was currently being
offered in the market.
“Our Harmonise
TM
rigging
product range is an
innovation that showcases
this design philosophy.”
The new design utilises the
Integrated Socket Equaliser
(ISE), an innovation replacing
five components and reducing
rigging height by more than
one metre. The ISE can also
reduce the rigging mass by
up to two tonnes, depending
on the size of the dragline.

have had to offer this expertise
in the design and manufacture
of dragline rigging products,”
