Prodragon Web Sling Co has a tightly integrated manufacturing process in which high tenacity polyester yarn is woven into webbing and then fabricated into webbing slings. The first phase of the company’s development has focused on producing webbing for cargo web slings and pipe slings. These markets need a manufacturing system which provides for high output, consistent quality and reliable delivery. ProDragon Web Sling Co has designed its manufacturing capability around these requirements.
The weaving of the webbing is direct from creel though a bespoke warp yarn tension unit into the latest design of weaving machines supplied by Kyang Yhe Group in Taiwan. The result is exceptionally high levels of productivity, quality and residual tenacity of woven webbing. The capability of the weaving should meet all requirements for webbing used in the marine and pipe sling sectors.
The factory also contains a webbing sling fabrication unit which has the capacity to convert the entire webbing output into slings. Initial capacity of the unit is 3 containers per week.
Phase 2 of the manufacturing facility will concentrate on increasing the flexibility of the production process so that a wider range of webbing and slings can be produced. Phase 2 will have a second 3,000 sq mtr building and will extend the range to cover webbing widths of 25mm to 300mm. This will extend the overall capability into the general lifting market and other specialized market sectors.
