Examples of services offered by IDM:
Splicing on all ski lift and air lift cables (all diameters)
Unreeling (in tension)
Unreeling of ski lift cables with a truck/winch that unreels the new cable while reeling the old one on a reel located on the truckbed. This operation is fast and safe, this technique suits very well long ski lifts with angle and floating sheaves. Unreeling with the nominal tension enables to pre-stretch the cable, thus guaranteeing a better stabilization of its lengthening. This also includes the unreeling of air lift ropes (stranded or closed) with standard equipement: winches, hydraulic-braked unreeler…
Shortening of all kinds of ropes
Hauling ropes to prevent the lengthening of the cable.
Repairs on cables (replacement of splicing or strands, repairs of Z wires on closed ropes).
Moving of suspension cables
In a regulatory context or because of the lengthening of a cable.
Making of sockets on closed or stranded ropes (such as cable car suspension cables or cable car hauling ropes socketed on the trolley).
Second life for the cables
IDM has chosen to remove the ropes that are still in good condition from lifts that are being dismantled in order to recycle them on other lifts still operated and not requiring a new rope (end-of-life lifts).
