Pulling test centre, Load tests
World class Proof Load testing facilities
East Metal's test centre provides the opportunity for optimising wind turbine parts, cranes, lifting gear, transport equipment and other machine parts and load bearing structures, as the test results can be used to validate the strength of new structures and components.
East Metal has two centres:
- In Dobele, Latvia we conduct tensile strength testing (pulling tests) of up to 350 tonnes. The maximum size of the components that are tested is about 10 tonnes in weight and with dimensions of 10 metres in length, 5 metres wide and 5 metres high
- In Denmark, at our plant in Nakskov, we can conduct tests at a significantly higher capacity – possibly the highest in the world: We can conduct tensile strength tests on pieces all the way up to 2250 tonnes (22,500 kN). The maximum size of the test subject is more than 50 tonnes its own weight, with dimensions of more than 30 m x 5.3 m x 13 m (length x breadth x height)
