Large number of ferrous steel wire ropes is in use in different industries. Premature discard and replacement with the new rope involves in unreasonable costs, while operating the rope, which already reached discard criteria, is dangerous. Visual inspection is obvious, but only visual examination is not sufficient due to specific rope design. Non-destructive magnetic inspection of ropes enables to gather comprehensive data for making reasoned decision. Magnetic flux leakage (MFL) equipment with strong magnetization can inspect ropes reliably, and smart software facilitates data interpretation.
Our professionals test the condition and estimate the remaining service life of a wire rope through Wire Rope Testing. We start with monitoring the wire rope’s production process, then determine the parameters by load tests in our workshops and extend to non-destructive testing of installed wire ropes.
