DEFINING ANSI E1.6-2-2018
Design, Inspection, and Maintenance of Electric Chain Hoists for the Entertainment Industry
2.3 dynamic load test: A test of the hoist wherein a test load is applied to the hoist and, at a minimum, lifted the distance required to completely test the power transmission system.
4.3.4: Dynamic load testing shall be required whenever a load bearing component, as identified by the manufacturer is altered, repaired, or replaced.
4.3.5 (new) Hoists shall be load tested no less than one time per year, with records of the test recorded.
With these changes in our standards, we are left with a void of how to effectively and inexpensively perform this test. Here is the answer.
With a base weight of only 700 pounds, this machine can be mounted on a truck, and you can take your services to the customer
This machine can dynamically test motors up to 2-ton capacities.
The mounting points are adjustable to ensure our motors can be tested per ANSI E1.6-2
Apply pressure on the load wheel, you have the option of a manual hydraulic press (shown here) or a powered pump press
This machine is designed to work with all digital load cell read outs. Specify your needs during the ordering process
Designed to be portable allows you to use then store out of the way in tight stations
