Liftek possesses versatile tensile test machines capable of conducting a variety of tests. Our test machines are calibrated and computer controlled.
We perform proof load and break tests of up to 800 tons on wire rope, synthetic ropes, slings and assemblies, spreader beams, oilfield equipment and tools, and a variety of specialty products.
Cyclic testing demonstrates not only the capacity of a product when new, but also its performance over time, looking at how issues, such as wear and corrosion, will affect the product over its lifetime.
Hold test reveals failures due to brake slippage, creep etc, which might not be evident during a proof load test of lifting equipment.
