EnerMech’s in-house wire rope facility has received Det Norske Veritas (DNV) accreditation for the manufacture of wire rope slings. In addition to our current capabilities, this now means we are now able to offer wire rope slings for use on DNV approved containers/units.
The 800m2 Wire Rope unit was established with a £1million investment and features a full suite of equipment including two hydraulic swaging presses, hydraulic test beds and automatic cutting and stamping machines.
This gives us the capacity to offer sling manufacture from 8mm to 38mm diameter and this will be enhanced in 2014 with a new 1000te swaging press which will increase the range of sling products we can manufacture.
More than 200 DNV standard sling sets are produced each month for use on containers and work baskets in addition to general purpose slings which are used on a whole host of different applications.
Kevin Yule, Wire Rope & Inspection Services Superintendant, said: “DNV accreditation followed a lengthy and thorough audit process. It enhances our capability by allowing us to manufacture wire rope slings to DNV standard and with an increasing number of products now being built to DNV specification this aligns us with market demand.”
General purpose wire rope manufactured by EnerMech includes single/two/three and four leg slings and each can be supplied with a varied type of end terminations.
