Safety Notes

Ensure that the correct type of wire rope is selected by referring to Ranger or the manufacturer guidelines. When calculating the maximum force you must take into account the mass to be lifted, shock loading, the effects of high speed, acceleration, any sudden starts or stops, the frequency of operation, and sheave bearing friction.

The performance of the rope and can be impacted by bending fatigue, abrasion, vibration, distortion and corrosion. These fractures may be internal only and will not be visually identified.

Our Magnetic Rope Services can look inside the rope and establish the condition of the rope without physically opening up the strands.

Regular Inspections are essential

Using lifting gear can often have a high risk of injury, and the cost to business can be significant when something goes wrong.

It is important to ensure that regular examinations and inspections of lifting gear are undertaken to ensure maintenance is kept, and to verify that the equipment can continue to be safely used.
