Pure tensile force up to 14,000 kN!

The Mennens site in Dongen has a tensile testing machine that can handle 14,000 kN without hassle! Perfect if you want to carry out some tensile tests. Of course, these can be carried out in the presence of an official inspection body. We use our recently modernised tensile testing machine to test (take a look at ProofloadTesting.com), for example:

  • Anchors
  • Blocks
  • Round slings
  • Fastenings
  • Lifting beams
  • Chain slings
  • Steel cables
  • …

Safety guarantee

The tensile testing machine makes it possible to (re)test the very heaviest straps, anchors, blocks, beams, steel cables, etc. for the desired values. These include tests for national or international approval certificates. Mennens’ specialists are already carrying out the legally required tests to a high level of accuracy. There clearly is a demand for this because they are also used by international classification agencies, including::
