NEW TESTING DEVICE OF WBK - SEILPRÜFSTELLE FOR NON-DESTRUCTIVE WIRE ROPE TESTING WITH THREE MEASURING CIRCUITS
The first non-destructive wire rope testing device was developed at WBK-Seilprüfstelle as early as in 1931 . Since those days nondestructive testing has proved to be an indispensable tool to support visual inspection in assessing the damage condition of steel wire ropes. According to the obtained findings it becomes possible to predict the likely progress of the existing type of damage.
