Cranes & Lifting Equipment -
Testing & Design Certification
The Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA) is New Zealand's key work health and safety law which requires that designers, manufacturers and employers take all practicable steps to ensure the safety of people using or in the vicinity of lifting equipment. Lifting equipment is a broad category that includes lifting beams, spreader bars and various tools.
Re-Generate have extensive experience of design, testing and design certification for a wide range of lifting equipment.
All lifting equipment must be designed in accordance with AS 4991-2004 Lifting Devices. This means all lifting devices must be certified by a Chartered Professional Engineer (CPEng). Re-Generate have several Chartered Professional Engineers on staff, ensuring that we are a one-stop shop for all you lifting equipment requirements.
Design Certification of Existing Lifting Equipment
Re-Generate utilise advanced 3D modelling and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to assess existing lifting equipment against applicable standards such as AS 4991-2004 Lifting Devices and AS 3990-1993 Mechanical Equipment Steelwork.
Testing and Proof Loading
Proof loading is an essential part of the Design Cerification process and is a requirement before the item is put into service. Re-Generate have very experienced staff familiar with the design and witnessing of safe proof load and testing procedures.
Design Improvements and New Parts
Pre-existing lifting tools are often very old and haven't always been designed to the appropriate standards. The Design Verification process is an important part of identifying potentially unsafe lifting equipment and Re-Generate have the in-house design skills to modify and improve the existing equipment or replace with new bespoke lifting equipment .
