Ropes, Haulage Equipment and other Mechanical Components in Shaft Hoisting Installations
We test and assess all safety relevant mechanical components on which people’s lives depend, such as:
- Hoisting ropes and counterbalancing ropes
- Guide ropes and platform ropes
- Head gear and sinking head gear
- Hoisting cages and skips
- Suspension gear
- Headwheels and drive wheels
- Wheel and pulley shafts
- Brake rigging
In our work we use high performance, non-destructive testing techniques.
An important in-house development for testing wire ropes for broken strands, corrosion and wear is our magneto inductive wire rope testing technique, an effective combination of measuring the flux leakage and cross-section. By carrying out destructive testing on new and discarded wire ropes in our own testing facilities, we consolidate and update our wire rope know-how.
