Cortland Company has invested $2 million USD in new manufacturing and testing equipment for its Jandakot facility in Perth, Western Australia to support its global heavy lift business.

Heavy lift engineering and design, manufacturing, testing and inspection will be available on site at the Cortland Testing and Fabrication Centre (CFTC). A high performance sling machine and 600 tonne, 50 metre horizontal proof test machine have been installed and commissioned to provide industry best manufacturing and testing capabilities for customers within Australasia.

Both machines will be showcased during Cortland's involvement in the Actuant Open Day at the facility on 28 July.

Stuart Janke, VP of rope and assembly sales, Cortland Rope and Assemblies, said: "Australasia remains an exciting market for our customers and our business."

"Our investment in new testing equipment ensures we deliver the highest possible quality and that our ropes and slings used across the APAC market set the standard."

Cortland Company explained that its machines will offer the highest combination of speed and load capability for fatigue testing of synthetic products. 

Stuart added: "Our customers can be assured that our engineering practices combined with rigorous testing means they have the right products to venture into ever more challenging environments."

The open day on July 28th will also feature products designed and utilized by sister companies Hyrdratight and Viking SeaTech.
