Sensing fatigue off highway

25 April 2008

The CrackFirst fatigue sensor system for use on the welded steel structures of mobile cranes and off-highway vehicles, is now available from the Strainstall Group Ltd.

Developed by an innovation programme managed by the Welding Institute for items subject to cyclical loading, the sensor monitors the fatigue rate so that inspection intervals can be set according to the amount of use. It is considered particularly suitable for use in applications where inspection and repair are difficult.
