Cookes 360

Non Destructive Evaluation (NDE)

´╗┐Cookes Test Technicians and Engineers are experts in wire and fibre rope and have an in-depth understanding of all aspects of rope management, including Statutory Rope Examination and Inspection. We can detect and accurately measure a ropes loss of metallic cross-sectional area (LMA). This allows us to give customers information vital to deciding whether a rope is fit for continued use, needs further testing, or should be retired.

Our highly trained technicians use this information to prepare reports for statutory purposes that provide recommendations based on a visual inspection and Non-Destructive Examination (NDE), which includes Magnetic Rope Testing (MRT). These reports are available through our asset management system BriCert, ensuring you always know the condition of your ropes.
