A year since introducing intermediate capacities of our popular telemetry wireless load links (RILL), LCM has seen sales of this particular product double.
Manufactured from high tensile aluminium, the RILL is lightweight, while the shackle holes are steel brushed to ensure they are rugged and hardwearing. The RILL loadlinks use a license free 2.4Ghz radio and are supplied with a battery powered handheld indicator that displays the load in tonnes. They are ideal for lifting and weighing applications, either on the factory floor or in offshore environments.
Commenting on this increase in sales, Managing Director, Steve Sargeant says "As loadlinks increase in popularity, more and more engineers have been designing them into load cell projects. By introducing new intermediate ranges in November last year with capacities that fall in line with the ratings and sizes of industry standard shackles, we were able to give our customers more choice at a more economical price. The series has also been extended to include lower ratings (from 1 tonne) and at the other end of the scale, a new 500 tonne load link has been introduced. They can be supplied as a simple link or our technical engineers can integrate additional instrumentation to turn them into complete systems with added functionality".
Customer worldwide have used LCM load links for applications as diverse under hook crane weighing, crane load and beam proof testing, cable tension measurement and water weights filling. All with fantastic results and for projects delivered on time and within budget.
