Somerset based lifting specialist, Tecni-Lift, has invested in a new state-of-the-art, hydraulic test rig – Yale RPTS-2015D – to enable the newly established company to carry out proof load and destruction testing on its products and assemblies.
Tecni-Lift specialises in the online supply of quality lifting products including shackles, web slings, chains, winches, swivels and hoists. The new 20 tonne machine has been purchased from Yale – a leading provider of high quality lifting products – and is specifically designed for testing pul-lifts, lever hoists, wire rope assemblies, chain blocks and wire rope pullers.
The Yale RPTS-2015D features a 20 tonne hydraulic hollow ram cylinder with a threaded pulling bar. These allow gradual loading for precise testing. It also features a calibrated Tigrip 20 tonne load cell with a digital indicator for load measurement to the nearest kilogramme and this load cell can withstand destruction testing of the tested components.
Managing Director at Tecni-Lift, Trevor Heyworth, said: "Tecni-Lift is committed to the ongoing investment in state-of-the-art equipment to ensure that the safety of our customers and the general public remain our topmost priority. The new test rig is a fantastic investment for Tecni-Lift and will ensure that any parts supplied to our customers are proven up to their working limits".
All Tecni-Lift products sold through the company’s website are sourced from leading brand manufacturers such as Crosby, Kuplex, Kito, Yale and Tractel. In addition it also has an advanced certification system in place and will provide test certificates with all of its products and assemblies to ensure that customers have complete peace of mind at all times.
