Based in northern Spain, steel forging specialist, Forjas Irizar SL, has been in business for 85 years, manufacturing crane hooks and other lifting components for more than 50 of them. Applications for its products include cranes and other lifting equipment used in demanding environments, for example, steel works, nuclear power stations, the naval sector and other offshore industries. Its latest investment is a 1,500 tonne capacity hydraulic traction-type testing machine to give safety-critical lifting components, such as hooks, periodic “health” checks in the form of load tests. The machine can accommodate components up to 6,000 x 2,000 x 2,000 mm. The machine itself measures 10,500 x 4,500 x 3,350 mm and weighs 94,500 kg.
