benches are intended for testing of wire ropes, synthetic and natural
fibre ropes, chains and other lifting equipment. To meet the increasing
demands of the various Safety Regulations, and the requirements
of rational and effective proof testing, we continuously develop
our pulltest benches.
These new machines employ a computer and are controlled by software
developed in house. The operator chooses in an interactive way from
a menu and imputs his requirement . For example the operator can
select from the menu, pulltest, hold test, break test, and when
applicable fatique test.
The parameters load, time and tension are displayed by graphs on
the computer monitor screen. After completion of the test a certifcate
is printed-out automatically together with a diagram in graph form.
All our pulltest benches are manufactured to the highest standards
and comply with the EN 10002 Class 1 Standard. Approval of the construction
by Lloyd´s Register of Shipping, London can be provided at
As previous all our pulltest benches are individually built and
we are therefore able to offer machines to satisfy specific customer
- High level of accuracy
- Operator friendly
- Safe and reliable
- Self supporting structure
- No foundation work necessary
For the insertion of wire
ropes which are longer than the direct insertion length a pulley
can be used. This enables a test length up to double the direct
For the insertion of steel
wire ropes the length of which exceed the exisiting insertion
possibilities the bench can be equipped with a hydraulic clamping
unit. Clamping is achieved between long aluminium dies, which
protect the wire rope from damage.
The adjustment carriage
runs on rails between the end stop of the bench up to 500mm from
the pull yoke. The adjustment interval for the carriage is 500mm.
Special attachment for chains
in a 500 tonne Pulltest Bench.
Equipment for testing of
stock anchor will be manufactured on request.
