Why APPI: When braided ropes are spliced it is critical the spice be pulled under high tension to set it and prevent it from unraveling. Sampson, one of the leading suppliers of braided rope in the country, uses multiple Columbia AC electric winches for this task in both their Lafayette, LA and Ferndale, WA manufacturing facilities.
David A Cameron, maintenance supervisor, at the Lafayette, LA plant says “The winches are performing quite nicely. We have three of your winches installed here; this one and two 10K lb. winches. We have the same type of application at our Ferndale, Washington facility.”
