One of the first questions riggers need to know to insure proper rigging is the weight of the load. Although there are many useful methods to estimate and assist determining the weight, a load cell is a great device to have in your inventory.
Loadlinks, load shackles, and load cylinders are now readily available and affordable. Data is immediately transmitted wirelessly or through a cable and is extremely accurate (< +/- 1%).
Below are just a few examples of how we’ve seen load cells being utilized by our customers:
- Under Hook Crane Weighing
- Heavy Lift
- Heavy Equipment Moving
- Lifting Bridges and other Large Installations
- Wire Rope and Cable Tension Monitoring
- Crane and Hoist Calibration and Proof Load Testing
