Lloyd’s approved testing centre


Damen AKF is a Lloyd’s Register-certified testing establishment that also operates to ISO 9001 standards. We currently have four hydraulic testing benches with pulling forces ranging from 100 to 2,000 tonnes.

Whether it’s proof loads, break loads or calibration, we have the tools to help you with all your testing requirements. We can also handle a range of non-destructive testing techniques such as tensile tests, impact tests and metallographic examination.

However, all this equipment would be nothing without a dedicated team. Our testing department has unrivalled experience and is proud to be in constant demand. Clients from a wide range of maritime industries come to us for testing of anchors, chains, axles and hoisting gear.
