Drilling lines

A drill line is a wire rope that is part of the control system of a drilling rig or derrick. These drilling lines consist of multiple wire ropes twisted together to form a thick and strong base.

Drilling lines are used to drill holes or pump oil and gas out of the earth. The drill lines make the up-and-down movement of the pump easier.

Oil & energy drilling lines

At Usha Martin, we supply various steel cables for drilling holes or for extracting oil and gas from the ground. The wires we develop for this are designed to perform safely and effectively under the most difficult conditions.

Both the onshore and offshore conditions in which drilling lines are used. Know tough conditions. Usha Martin has developed special cables for this. Extra strong, safe, flexible, and reliable. This results in less downtime and a nice cost-saving.

Drilling Line Length

Drill lines often vary in length and thickness, depending on the desired dimensions of the drilling project. That is why our drilling lines are custom-made.

How do the drilling lines work?

Drilling lines are retracted via a pulley, after which the drilling line is attached to the motor. The motor generates the force needed to lift and lower the drill. Because the drilling line runs through several pulleys, it makes the work a lot easier for the workers.

For every application

In addition to the oil and gas industry, our steel cables are also used in many other places. Our customers come from a wide range of industries. In addition to the oil and gas industry, we also have customers from sustainable energy, cranes, mining, fishing, elevators, infrastructure & structural works, and construction.

Safety is sacred, so our cables are highly reliable. This will only work if you have been delivering the highest quality for years. In addition, our large volumes offer an attractive price.
