Bally Ribbon Mills Offers Custom-Designed Woven Materials for Critical Rigging and Tie Down Applications

Lightweight two- and three- dimensional reclaimable materials offer strength and resistance

Bally Ribbon Mills (BRM), an industry leader in the design, development, and manufacture of highly specialized engineered woven fabrics, announces the availability of a wide range of lightweight two-and three-dimensional woven materials that serve as the structure or substrate for critical rigging and tie down applications that require strength, interlaminar shear, enduring resistance, or conductivity.


BRM custom-designs specialty applications with high strength to weight ratios, flame/heat resistance, flexibility, low elongation, and abrasion resistance. Available in widths from one to six inches, BRM rigging and tie-down materials are manufactured in such high performance fibers as Kevlar ® , Vectran ® , Technora ® , Spectra ® , and Dyneema ® .

Recent examples include specialized materials for load securement/stabilization equipment, chafing sleeves used for lifting and sling materials for safe load transfer at cargo control facilities, as well as webbing used to safely move chip manufacturing equipment around factories. BRM rigging and tie down webbing is also used as a sling in an actuator/drum serving as the strength tendon of a robotic arm used in a loading device being designed for a lunar habitat.

igus - Maintenance-free gantry robots for vertical farming

drylin® gantry robots consist of two base X-axes, a Y-axis, and an optional Z-axis. Their self-lubricating plastic liners have been engineered to slide instead of roll and to run smoother and quieter than recirculating ball bearings. drylin® gantries are also lightweight, corrosion-resistant, maintenance-free, and cost up to 40% less than traditional gantry robots.
