120klbf Load Measuring Pin

6th Oct 2017

Manufactured for one of our regular customers and leaving the factory this week is a 120 klbf (5.4 tonne) load pin which has a very large diameter in comparison to its load capacity. This is because the load pin is a direct replacement for an existing load bearing pin, so dimensionally has to match it exactly, despite the dimensions being far from optimal. To enable the load pin to accurately measure the required load, the load pin was machined with extra deep grooves to provide adequate strain when subjected to that load.
