Abstract:

This report summarizes the ability of the MT75 Rope Tester to detect wire rope defects both externally and internally. The test instrument performed well in its ability to detect defects purposely inplanted into test wire rope samples. However, in an actual field test inspecting a crane wire rope, the tester identified no defects not detected visually by the operator.
