Dangerous overload situations may occur during lifting activities for several reasons. The first one being not knowing the lifted load‘s weight. When the weight is unknown, no matter how experienced the crane operator is, weight evaluations are not accurate enough and may cause a dangerous overload.
In foundries and other hot temperature industries that deal with casting and forging activities, there is a need for wireless crane scales. Crane scales with wireless data transmission are imperative because a cable would not survive the heat. Ron wireless crane scale and tension dynamometer series is available with high quality, advanced heat shields. Heat shields provide important protection for foundry crane scales and enable them to operate in the difficult conditions and high temperatures that exist in this environment.
Dynamometers, when used as pull scales, are used for load and force testing as well as pull test applications, including drag force testing. Several examples of force testing: Testing drag force of rescue vehicles, plows, and of course tug boats which is also known as the Bollard pull test.
As the wind power construction boom continues demand for high quality load measuring devices continues to climb. In the wind power industry, Eilon Engineering dynamometers and crane scales are constantly being used in the construction, testing, and maintenance of wind turbines, mainly for overload prevention, proof load tests, installation and guy wires tension control.
