Lifting Points for Bolting – Ultimate Safety in Lifting with the RUD PowerPoint Star
Tuesday, Jan 14, 2014
RUD offer an extensive range of lifting and lashing applications which includes both welded and threaded types, covering a working load capacity range from 0.6 to 200 tonne. Offering over 270 different tested and certified lifting/lashing points, 210 of which are for bolting and 60 for welding.
The demand for loads to be turned, swiveled and twisted during the handling process of a project has certainly increased over the years. Loads can easily be damaged and lifting systems can be considerably overloaded. Mould and die manufacturers are prime examples of this, when moulds or dies must be flipped the lifting points they use need to swivel and pivot at the same time.
RUD know how important it is to offer an ultimate safety factor through their lifting points which they have done through their PowerPoint Star. The PowerPoint Star is an extremely robust lifting point which has the ability to pivot in any direction, allowing the lifting and turning of goods to run smoothly, as well as reducing costs to damaged tools. It offers a unique double ball bearing system which provides a smooth and efficient swivel action when turning loads and is operational to temperatures as low as -40 degrees.
The forged safety latch protects against lateral bending, as well as the thickened tip of the hook which prevents handling malpractices and resists bending. These features therefore provide an exceptional safety factor, a paramount feature when lifting and moving heavy goods.
The PowerPoint Star is extremely popular due to its "Clevis Fitting" which allows 3 types of connections into the clevis; chain, hooks or most commonly used a master ring. The PowerPoint Star therefore provides 3 alternatives from one component.
RUD provide standard and tailored solutions to meet even the most demanding environments, helping to deliver applications that are catered to specific requirements, project aims and environments. Top quality products combined with technological innovations and experience make RUD a top choice for all your lifting requirements.
