Decades of expertise in load and stress testing

It’s important to know the limits of cranes when they are installed, as they are responsible for lifting a lot of weight. This is where load testing and stress testing are invaluable.

The process involves applying a specified load to an item of equipment in order to assess and verify its strength. The results of the test will reveal the percentage of the working load limit (WLL) or safe working load (SWL) that the equipment in question has been designed to withstand.
