Load & Force calculation equipment can be highly beneficial when it comes to lifting heavy loads. Overloading the lifting device is one of the main causes of serious injury, so knowing the weight of the load which needs lifting is very important, as is the forces applied to the load when lifted, however this is not always easy to determine; this is where crane scales and load cell devices come in handy. Find out more below.
Our crane scales and load cells are sourced from a number of well known manufacturers, which is welcome news for anyone who has a particular product in mind that they would like to order.
From Yale and Straightpoint to Dynafor and Red Rooster, the pages of our site are brimming with some of the best load and force calculation products around. The same variety and choice is common across our other equipment and material handling ranges.
The safety benefits of using load and force calculation equipment have been touched upon briefly but this is a topic that bears considering more closely before you kick start any significant lifting operations.
It is not just important to work out whether the equipment you are using is up to the task from a safety perspective, although this is clearly important given the extensive regulations which govern this area. Another reason to invest in gear that can calculate load capacities and force levels quickly and accurately is that this will help you from a productivity perspective. Rather than facing delays caused by mistakes made in the planning stages, you can use our products to turbo-charge your lifting duties without compromising on safety.
