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

Torsion bending test system for shafts and crankshafts.

for crankshafts

  • 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
