Proof load testing is an essential part of any inspection, repair and maintenance programme. In many countries proof load testing of lifting equipment such as cranes is a mandatory requirement. A successful proof load test instills confidence in customer, operator and owner.
There are a variety of applications for crane load dynamic testing, including:
Crane commissioning: Crane load dynamic testing is typically performed during the commissioning of a new crane to ensure that it is operating safely and efficiently.
Load testing: Crane load dynamic testing is also used to evaluate the capacity of a crane to safely lift and hold a load. This testing helps to identify any potential issues with the crane before it is put into service.
Performance testing: Crane load dynamic testing can also be used to evaluate the overall performance of a crane. This testing can help to identify any issues with the crane's speed, acceleration, braking, and other performance metrics.
Maintenance testing: Crane load dynamic testing is also used to evaluate the condition of a crane during routine maintenance. This testing helps to identify any wear or damage to the crane's components that may need to be addressed.
