In our Montreal location we operate a Lucker
M500 Test bed having a maximum proof test capacity of 400,000 lbs. and break strength capacity of 300,000 lbs. The test bed length is 80 ft.

Operating range is 5,000 lbs to 400,000 lbs utilizing 2 dedicated load cylinders.

This machine can be set to perform cycle testing (within parameters).

This test bed has special attachments to proof test wire rope slings, synthetic flat web slings up to 12” width (e.g. boat lifting slings), all types of chain slings, round slings, high performance fiber slings, and rigging hardware.

 

In addition this test machine comes with a wire rope grip for up to 2-1/2” rope diameter. This grip enables us to proof test wire rope end attachments AFTER they have been installed onto ropes much longer than the test bed itself; e.g. proof testing of crane rope buttons or Torpedo style buttons swaged onto non-rotating mobile crane ropes.

The test results are captured via an hydraulic transducer and printed on to a test strip for your reference.

In addition to our M500 horizontal test we have developed a new kind of universal vertical testing equipment. This tester has 3 hydraulic cylinders which can be used independently or in tandem spanning a certified proof testing range from 80 lbs to 50,000 lbs. The maximum test piece length is 29 ft, the width is limited by the space beside the test bed. The cylinders can be freely positioned within the test bed length.
