Lifting Equipment Hire
To meet your business needs we have a fleet of load cells (tension and compression) available for hire in varying capacities and configurations. All load cells come with calibration certification and are transported in durable road boxes. We have systems which you can hire to accurately weigh up to 900 tonnes and calculate the centre of gravity for difficult and heavy lifts. We can provide staff, instructions and training to supervise this load testing, load weighing, lifting gear and winding (rope handling) equipment as required.
Big Lift Division
Nobles Big-Lift Division has a 2,500-tonne wire rope swaging press; this capability supports Nobles being the stand out leaders in the supply of heavy duty wire rope sling and ropes within Australia. Further, Nobles has some of the largest testing beds in Australia and can test lifting slings up to 35m in length at up to 1,000 tonnes.
Our extensive testing facilities are regularly utilised for both our own manufacturing division and to support customers for various purposes including; proof load testing, destruction testing and research and development purposes.
Water Weights bags are for providing a load, in place of dead weights, for load testing, crane load testing, crane commissioning, Davit testing, life boat testing, Pad Eye testing or ballasting for industrial and off shore marine applications. The Water Weights system was the first to allow safe and practical use of water as a weight for load testing and we stock various size bags to suit loads up to 600 tonne.
Water Weights bags are made in standard sizes, but specific bags can be manufactured to any practical shape or size. We ensure the load is measured with a certified load cell allowing for 1% accuracy where required and the bags themselves are fully tested to a minimum of 1.5 times their rated capacity.

Wire Rope Lubrication
Re-lubrication of a crane rope is often an excellent option for extending the life of older ropes. Nobles can offer advice and assistance for your lubrication requirements. We have access to pressure lubricators that ensure lubricants penetrate right through to the core of the rope, not just the visible exterior.
We offer our own range of Nobles Wire Rope Lubricants and Lanotec lanolin-based lubricants, ensuring that the right lubricant is used for your rope, application and the installed environment.
