There are a number of factors that make On Call Lifting the experts in the testing of lifting equipment.
According to AS 4991-2004: “Proof loading shall be applied in a manner similar to its intended use in service, but shall be applied at a rate that minimizes dynamic loads.”
Each of our Testing Units is operated through a Data Capturing Test Program that electronically captures the Test and issues a computer generated Test Certificate. Any test that is carried out will have an OCL Test number that correlates with a number marked/stamped on the tested item as is required by the standards.
Our list of Testing Equipment includes:
A 1000kn (101.9T) calibrated & certified “Test Bench” in our Rutherford workshop
A 490kn (50T) calibrated and certified “Test Bench” in our Coffs Harbour workshop.
Portable 5T and 50T calibrated and certified load cells should there be a requirement to carry out any testing in the field.
A 98.1kn (10T) calibrated and certified Mobile “Constant Load Test Tower”.
Should there be a requirement by the standard or cause found during the visual inspection to have an item tested we look to return the items to service as quickly as possible to ensure minimal interruption to production.
