The Gleistein testing laboratory

Tearing it up: With a force of up to 300 tons!

Rope strengths are growing continuously and Gleistein’s renowned testing lab keeps pace with three highperformance tensile testing machines ranging from 20 kN to 3,000 kN. Besides classically assessing break loads and conducting OCIMF tests, individual programs can be conducted that include precise shock and continuous load simulations, testing in liquids and under other situations closely replicating real-life conditions.

External customers now also have the opportunity to enjoy the extensive possibilities the Gleistein testing lab provides.
