Our inspection service encompasses the following areas:
Collection of data
The quantity and type of lifting slings is established. Existing documentation (e.g. inspection sheets) is collated or supplemented.
The condition of the components and safety devices, as well as the correct assembly thereof, is determined by means of a manual inspection (visual inspection).
Check of dimensions and operation
During this check, the strands and individual components of chain slings, for example, are inspected for any abnormal dimensions caused by expansion, wear and tear, etc. The function of the safety devices is also checked at the same time.
Check for flaws in chain slings
Chain slings are subject to a separate technical/physical check by our qualified staff to ensure that they are free from any flaws. The complete check includes the fittings components.
Load test for lifting gear
For lifting gear, we also carry out a dynamic load test on our test rigs, which are specially designed for this purpose, to ensure that the braking device functions properly.
Faulty lifting slings and equipment which do not comply with safety requirements will be repaired by us with the agreement of the customer.
Tests and servicing will be documented by us and we will provide you with a hard copy (test certificate) or file, e.g. on a CD, as your proof to present to the professional trade association.
