Wire Rope and Cable Examination
Thorough wire rope and cable examinations regulated by Lolar.
Tru-Tec NDT performs wire rope inspection in accordance with LOLER regulations.
Tru-Tec NDT provides:
Traditional wire rope inspection techniques do not adequately establish the internal condition of a wire rope. For rotation resistant, multi-strand ropes, difficulties in assessing the internal condition are of concern. Degradation of the inner strands will affect the distribution of forces in the rope, which significantly reduces the ultimate load bearing capacity and increases the torsional moments on the outer strands, reducing fatigue life.
Tru-Tec NDT utilizes the latest cable inspection equipment to ensure 100% coverage of cable inspection detecting localised faults such as wire breaks and any loss in metallic area (LMA) caused by internal corrosion.
Magnetic Rope Testing can be applied to In-Service & Pre-Service wire ropes, with inspections recorded and results stored to enable comparisons between inspections for future examinations.
Magnetic Rope Testing is applied to a variety of sectors such as Lifts, Cranes, Amusement Devices, Gondolas.
