Welcome to Augsburger Drahtseilfabrik GmbH one of the oldest companies in the rope business. Since 1785 everything we do is focused on ropes. For this reason we are presenting today a highly advanced and complete line of products and accessories for steel wire ropes. Besides the production of special wire rope constructions for all purposes we are offering completely finished elements for lifting and hoisting for all industries, such as machinery engineering, construction, automotive industries and their suppliers as well as cable structures.

Wire rope accessories

A well selected stock of wire rope accessories makes a quick production of complete assembled ropes possible. Support and recommendation in the choice of rope construction, application and determination of rope fittings is a matter of course. Besides this also special constructions and adapted fittings could be provided and rupture tested on own testing machines.

For more technical details please see our actual catalogues and leaflets.

Lifting equipment

Besides our main activities in wire ropes we are offering the complete range of high-tensile-chains, textile lifting components, lashing equipment, attachment swivels, as well as clamps and lever hoists. Of course combinations of the different lifting components are possible.

We can inform about all safety-regulations. The maintenance of all kind of lifting equipment is carried out by ourselves.

Cable structures

Steel wire ropes represent a highly advanced element in modern architecture. Used as supporting cables for glass facades or glass roofing, as valley cables or tensioning cables in textile membrane structures, we are always impressed by these elements, the transparency and vast extent of spaces. Constructions almost weightless float above the buildings and accentuate urban development.

In the private sphere too, cables are used as elements of design, such as climber-systems at building facades, as tensioning cables for canopies or as railings.
