Inspection Authority for Cranes

We are a competent partner and problem solver for manufacturers and operators of cranes of all kinds, hoists, work platforms and load handling devices. At the test center for cranes, we combine the expertise of experienced crane experts with our services in the fields of calculation, design, simulation and metrology.

Our service repertoire includes: preliminary, construction and acceptance tests as well as customized solutions to various problems arising from the operation of cranes and hoists. In addition, we prepare technical arguments in preparation for legal disputes.

Measuring testing analysis

Measuring testing analysis

  • Measurement of crane runway (without and/or with crane loads)
  • Measurement of crane geometry as well as verification of manufacturer tolerances (e.g. wheel misalignment, structur misalignment)
  • Evaluation of the running behavior of cranes (for example, determination of skew forces and vibration behavior)
  • Determination of deformation and stress conditions on structural and mechanical elements
  • Measurement of the wheel load distribution
  • Evaluation of the vibration behavior (for example serviceability, cabin vibrations)
  • Cause analysis through complex measurements on hoists
