120te Load Pin for Mooring Bollard Load Monitoring
Share Distribuie pagina

We are often asked to supply load pins to suit customer supplied load shackles from various manufacturers, but we are also sometimes asked to provide load pins for clevis arrangements, like this 120 tonne load pin that was recently despatched to a UK based mooring contractor that specialises in mooring bollards. The load pin has been designed to fit their MacAlloy FA/85 fork, and our computer generated image shows the load pin within the fork assembly. We also supplied a custom designed anti-rotation bracket and one of our TR150 handhelds with RS232 output for data acquisition to PC.

12.5kN Washer Load Cells

We have recently manufactured and despatched these 12.5kN stainless steel washer/through hole load cells to one of our UK customers. From our standard WAS range, the 12.5kN rated version is the smallest we manufacture, with a diameter of just 25mm and height of 12mm. The main application for these load cells is measuring the tension in bolts for safety monitoring or general quality control. Our standard range goes up to 540kN, but we can supply higher capacity and custom design versions if required. 

Load Pins for Farming Application

Shipped this week to in tractor supplier in South Africa were these 15 tonne rated load pins. They will replace existing load bearing pins in a tractor to provide load monitoring during ploughing. They have been designed with a recessed M12 connector to protect it from the arduous operational conditions and are environmentally sealed to IP67.

BP16 Pressure Transducers

These 10,000psi BP16 pressure transducers have been manufactured for a UK based company that specialises in controlled hydraulic jacking. Part of our standard range, they are available in pressure ratings from 100psi (6.89 Bar) to 14,500psi (1000 Bar). These particular pressure transducers have been supplied with mV/V output, but we can also manufacture versions that have a 4-20mA, 0-5V, 0-10V or +/-10V output. Supplied with 2 metres of cable as standard, an integral connector option is also available.

2te Load Shackles with Integral Amplifiers

To one of our regular UK customers we have just despatched these two load shackles with a 2 tonne load rating and a 4-20mA output via integral ICA4 amplifiers. Due to the requirement for the amplified output, the 2 tonne Crosby load shackles that we would normally use were not suitable due to their small size. Instead we used Crosby G2130 3.25 tonne load shackles which are large enough to accommodate the housing required for the amplifier and manufactured a load pin rated at 2 tonnes to suit.

We can supply load shackles with load capacities as low as 1 tonnes to in excess of 1500 tonnes, and there are many options and special designs available. For more information on our load shackle range, or any other of our load measurement products, please contact us at   

500kg Bi-Directional Load Pins

For one of our regular Netherlands based customers we have manufactured these 500kg rated bi-directional load pins. This means that they have been calibrated in two directions so that they can be used to measure loads coming from both the top and underneath the load pins. They also feature integral 2 wire ICA5 amplifiers to provide 4-20mA output for simple connection to a display/indicator to view load measurement data. 

4000kg Winch Load Pins

Currently undergoing final calibration are these 4000kg rated load measuring pins.They will be going to a Canadian company that specialises in high-tech solutions for the global aluminium industry and will be installed in winch blocks to provide load monitoring and overload protection. The load pins are dual bridge, provide 4-20mA output via internal ICA5 amplifiers and have been supplied with 20 metres of TPE robotics cable.

6te Load Pin for Hoist Trolley

Currently going through our production department is one of the smaller custom design load pins we manufacture. At just 95mm long and rated to 6 tonnes, it is going to a customer in the Netherlands that specialises in tailor made hoist and lifting solutions for marine, offshore and heavy industry applications. The load pin will be installed in one of their hoist trolley units to provide overload protection. Whether your requirement is for a one off small load pin or multiple high capacity load pins, LCM Systems can provide you with a solution to meet your needs. Please contact our sales team for further information.

9.5te Load Link with Data Logging

We have recently manufactured a load link that provides data logging capabilities. Rated at 9.5 tonnes, the load link incorporates a compact data logger that can be accessed via a removable cover for easy data retrieval. Data can be measured and recorded at specified intervals from once every 2 seconds to once every 12 hours depending on the application and project requirements, and can be saved in a format easily read by spreadsheets such Microsoft Excel. Offering accuracy of 0.6% of rated load and with environmental sealing to IP66, the load link has been manufactured from stainless steel, making it suitable for many arduous industrial environments.


400te Telemetry Load Shackles

Manufactured for a US customer and despatched this week were two of our 400 tonne telemetry load shackles. The TELSHACK-B-HL is part of our standard heavy lifting load shackle range which use GN Rope H10 shackles and are supplied with 3.1 material certification as standard. Suitable for use in a wide range of industrial and marine heavy weighing applications, they are available in load ratings from 120 tonnes to 2000 tonnes. These load shackles were also supplied with our handheld display which can toggle between tonnes or lbs and centralising load bobbins for optimal accuracy.
