Quality control and traceability

Every aspect of the automated endless winding process is carefully controlled within an environment free of UV light and with humidity and temperature measured and controlled.

Fibre tension controls are in place to ensure a cable system that provides exceptionally consistent and reliable performance.

SmartRigging cables are manufactured to the leading standards in the marine industry (Germanischer Lloyd). The stays are tested during production and before shipping to ensure that their performance and repeatability are unsurpassed.

All cables are tested in a state-of-the-art stretch testing bed prior to shipping. Every cable is stretch tested and pulled from 500 kg to 1.5 times the safe working load. This allows SmartRigging to guarantee quality and a long lifespan. A stretch test, warranty, and user certificates are included.

SmartRigging now uses an RFID track-and-trace system that allows the service department to recognise any given stay that comes in for service and testing. Racing teams can have a system of their own for using and selecting the right stays when testing or racing.

SmartRigging products come with a one-year limited warranty on material and production faults.

For all of these reasons and more, SmartRigging remains the Intelligent choice for new builds and refits.
