Plate Lifting Equipment
Load & Force Calculation EquipmentWith crane scales and load cells. There is no need to take any risks when you use our equipment to weigh loads accurately. The crane scales are built for industrial scale use and are commonly encountered in foundries and across the manufacturing industry. Our range includes models from Dynafor, Dini Argeo and Straightpoint. The variety of load cells is similarly diverse, ranging from models that can handle a few hundred kilograms up to units rated for several hundred tonnes. Switching between units of measurement is straightforward, so you can see the force a load is exerting in Newtons, as well as its weight in kg or lbs.
WinchesHere you will find cable pullers and wire rope winches. A cable puller is a useful device to have for heavy lifting, as it can operate on wire ropes of any length and operate effectively whether working on horizontal or vertical travel paths. We sell economy range products in this category, as well as premium Tirfor brand products which are built to tackle heavy duty lifting and tensioning tasks. Meanwhile our wire rope winches are available with electric, pneumatic and manual powered operation. Winches from firms like Pfaff and LTM are sold in this category, which guarantees great build quality and consistent performance.
Wire Rope ProductsWire rope assemblies and end fittings can be found here. This includes items like thimbles that prevent kinking during heavy lifting, hooks for added safety when lifting heavy loads, sockets that let you connect a wire rope to an anchor point and other crucial components. Safety regulations covering lifting are important, so this is not something that can be overlooked. We sell stainless steel wire rope in different configurations, either without any coating or with a protective layer of PVC in the colour of your choice applied to the surface. The same service is available for the standard steel wire rope you can buy on Lifting Gear Direct. We are proud to supply our customers with all of these lifting products, parts and accessories.
