FAILURE INVESTIGATION & ANALYSIS
The failure of a rope in service is always something to be guarded against. However there are still occasions where events that were not anticipated occur and a rope breaks. In this situation it’s often important to reconstruct the causes of the failure so that lessens can be learnt and future failures can be prevented.
With decades of experience and a wealth of test data and case studies the Engineers at Marlow Ropes are ideally placed to perform this type of investigation. The ready access to test equipment also enables reproduction of specific conditions and scenarios, to test hypotheses and demonstrate the failure mechanisms. These resources are available to assist our customers in understanding in service failures.
