Applied Fiber Manufacturing (Havana, Fla., U.S.A.) has developed and is able to mass-produce composite termination technology for use with synthetic fiber cables. According to the company, cable terminals can be made to nearly any shape or form and attached to cabling with ultra-high tolerances. This technology is expected to allow cable manufacturers who produce cabling reinforced with advanced fibers of all types (e.g., Kevlar, Vectran, Dyneema, Twaron) to provide competitive alternatives to traditional steel cable in infrastructure (bridge), automotive and aerospace applications.
