Pull testing is an effective means of testing the strength of wire rope assemblies to ensure they meet the specific requirements of the customer’s application. That’s why Lexco Cable offers these services for our customers. We can proof load to a percentage of the break strength or we can perform a fully destructive pull test to determine at what point a cable assembly meets its limits.
According to ISO 8402, traceability in manufacturing represents "the ability to trace the history, application, or location of an entity by means of recorded identifications."
