Konecranes (Springfield, OH) has developed RopeQ, a reliable system that evaluates the working condition of wire ropes using a proprietary Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) method. The RopeQ uses electromagnetic technology to assess the inner and outer wires and strands of a rope, which ensures accurate and repetitive inspection results. Additional features include:
- The ability to detect flaws that are not visible on the surface of wire ropes.
- The capability to attach the tool to the wire rope to record a series of interior images.
- Reduced lifecycle costs of equipment due to optimizing wire rope change intervals.
- Applicability in a number of facilities, such as steel or paper mills, foundries, chemical plants, and aerospace manufacturing.
