Crane scales or hoist scales are one of the most recognisable pieces of industrial equipment, as they can often be found within shipyards, car manufacturing plants and foundries. The scale itself performs an important function. It provides an accurate reading of the static load which is being handled. This is obvious for safety reasons while on any job site. At Lifting Gear Direct, we offer only the highest quality of brands; ensuring that reliability is never an issue.
Knowing exactly how much weight you have to handle is important from a safety perspective, since all equipment has a safe capacity that must be adhered to in order to eliminate risks. Complacency is the quickest way to make mistakes and invite accidents, so investing in a reliable, accurate crane scale like the models we sell will be a wonderful way to make sure all your operations run smoothly.
In terms of durability, it is not just the ruggedness of the materials which are relevant; designed of crane scales can also include a degree of waterproofing, especially to components that are most likely to suffer damage when exposed to moisture.
There are lots of other perks to consider when choosing between crane scales. For example, some are designed with convenience as well as accuracy in mind, with the use of remote control capabilities meaning that they can be operated from afar, rather than requiring direct interaction with the main body of the scale itself to change settings and make other adjustments.
Independent operation can be achieved thanks to integrated rechargeable batteries, letting a scale be set up almost anywhere. If you are using this in conjunction with a jib crane or a gantry system, particularly of the mobile variety, this level of portability will clearly be an advantage.
There are lots of ways to work out whether a particular type of lifting equipment is suited to your needs, with the load capacity and the other technical specifications being just one aspect of what you have to consider.
You might also, for example, be eager to order a crane scale which is made by a particular brand. This is easy to do thanks to LGD, as our site is packed with an army of amazing products from manufacturers that you will already know and love.
