At Lifting Gear Direct we stock and supply load and force calculation equipment from big name brands at competitive prices, with our load cell line up reflecting the variety on offer across the rest of our lifting equipment range. A crane load cell or weight load cell can help determine the weight and forces implied on a load and therefore offer an additional safety aspect to lifting applications.
About Load Cells
Load Cells provide the means to calculate load and force measurements on many lifting applications. They can measure in a range of measuring units including; kg, tonnes, lbs & kN.
Being able to measure the load that is being applied to equipment is important if you want to perform a variety of operations as safely as possible. It is not sensible to let guesswork take the wheel when lives are on the line and taking risks will likely lead to property damage as well as lost productivity. With the right load cell, you can steer clear of these issues with ease.
Tension load cell
These compact measuring devices have either a digital display incorporated into the main unit, or they may have a remote control hand held display, these enable clear and easy reading of all measurements and calculations.
Our load cell range has models with varying capacities, the largest having a 500 tonne lifting capacity.
Crane Load cell manufacturer options
We endeavour to offer customers as many different product options as possible in our load cells line up, meaning that you can order products from brands you know and recognised.
Straightpoint, Red Rooster, Dynafor and Yale are amongst the companies whose load cells we supply.
Whether you have an allegiance to a particular brand already or you are looking to expand your horizons with a bit of kit from a fresh manufacturer, Lifting Gear Direct can help.
Other useful equipment
A load cell can be the cornerstone of a good lifting setup but you might also require other products to optimise your ability to operate effectively.
Add in a crane scale to accurately measure weights, opt to order a custom gantry system to give you the framework for convenient, portable lifting and see what else LGD can do for you by searching our site.
