Ships' cargo handling gear arrives at Universal Rope Fabrication for inspection, culling and packaging for re-use.
Visual inspection of web and wire slings is the first step in the cull process. For web slings, the visual culling includes edge damage, abrasions and wrap thread damage as per Transport Canada's Web Sling Wear Standards.

After visual inspection, wire slings go through the straightening process. This allows the slings to be bundled into manageable quantities for easy inventory monitoring and handling with loading cargo.
