Services in the field of cranes, bridges, elevators and shaft hoisting systems
We offer the following services for ropes and rope drives in cranes, bridges, elevators, shaft hoisting equipment, amusement machines, construction machines, etc.
Rope drive analysis
Often, only individual points are the cause of most of the wear. By specifically analyzing a rope drive, possible weak points can be identified. From this, optimization suggestions can be derived that can increase the service life of your rope drive, in some cases considerably.
Rope life time calculations
Running ropes are not fatigue-proof but are subject to fatigue and wear, among other things, during use. The wire break development takes place according to an exponential function. Even before your rope is put into operation, we can forecast the rope service life and, if necessary, point out improvement measures.
When preparing damage assessments, ROTEC GmbH determines the cause of the damage at hand. For this purpose, our experienced experts come directly to you, record all relevant data, carry out further investigations and state the reason for the failure in a detailed report. Sie als Kunde erhalten ein detailliertes und gerichtsfestes Gesamtbild des Schadenshergangs.
There is often a wide range of different ropes to choose from for one and the same application, which differ greatly in their construction, strength and, last but not least, price. ROTEC GmbH supports you in selecting the best rope and the most economical solution for your application.
Trainings and seminars
ROTEC GmbH conducts seminars and training courses on the topics of ropes, ropeways, rope testing, design of rope drives, etc. The scope as well as the orientation of the respective training is coordinated in advance with you as the client and tailored to your needs. We are happy to come directly to you and combine the theoretical basics with a practical part at your installation. Learn more about our training and seminar program and upcoming events.
Research & Development
The topics of research and development play a central role at ROTEC: For example, we are continuously developing non-destructive testing methods for steel and fiber ropes. For example, the innovative rope inspection system ROPESYS, which enables a 3D view into the rope, was developed and produced independently. In addition, we are constantly working on new developments around the topics of “rope and rope testing” on behalf of our customers.
