English term or phrase: PROOF LOAD/DESTRUCTION TEST MACHINE (PLDT machine)
I have found a description of what this machine does (as described below) but has it got a specific name in Norwegian? I'd be very grateful for any help. Thank you!

PROOF LOADER (PL) is a machine used to test wire rope slings and other rigging equipment by applying a pre-determined load. This load is normally twice the rated Safe Working Load of the sling or fitting. Proof Load machines are not suitable for destruction testing. Defined by force in tons or kN.

PROOF LOADER/DESTRUCTION TESTER is a combined Proof Load/Destruction Test Machine. The capacity of the machine to proof load is far greater than its capacity to destruction test in terms of rope diameter.

Denne maskinen har neppe noen bestemt betegnelse på norsk. Selv om enkelte lesere kaller maskinen noe annet, er den foreslåtte oversettelsen ganske sikkert forståelig for en profesjonell leser.
