We make mobility safer
From ferries, to speed boats, to cruise ships, SincoTec test systems, and testing services ensure the performance and safety of ship components to guarantee that engines and assemblies are safely designed
Imagine the crankshaft of a 40,000 horsepower engine on a cruise ship it would barely fit into a living room and testing its fatigue strength requires up to 400,000 Nm of torque. Like the crankshaft, ship drive shafts connecting the engine and propeller are also exposed to both high torque and dynamic oscillating loads.
Damage to one of these components renders the ship unmanoeuvrable which can end catastrophically.
Our shipping test systems
- Single axial bending or torsion loads
- Combined loads (bending and torsion)
- Testing the effect of multi-axial loads on fatigue strength e. g. of crankshafts in speedboats
The world's largest resonance test rig: POWER SWING MOT 2 MN – ideal for ship components
Commonly tested components:
- Engine blocks
- Connecting rods
Our testing services for shipping
We can support with:
- Fatigue strength testing
- Environmental simulations
- Crack analysis
- Failure analysis
- Experts’s report
In addition to the exisiting testing solutions our expert team of engineers and technicians develop new test systems and testing solutions to meet your specifications.
