When undertaking heavy lifting projects it is important to use top quality lifting points, as well as it being a legal requirement. Quality lifting points enable a range of lifting processes to occur safely and smoothly from production, assembly, to the end customer. Without the appropriate lifting equipment projects can experience costs in potential damages to the goods and accidents to the operator, all resulting in overall additional costs.
RUD is known for their innovative lifting points which are used across a wide range of industries from construction, manufacturing, materials handling to engineering and offshore to name a few. Product development and innovation is key at RUD which can be seen in one of their latest innovations, the new ICE-LBG-SR load ring.
VLBG load rings offer the advantage of an unsymmetrical force introduction, meaning it always adjusts itself to the pulling direction of the load. Consequently, avoiding any unintentional opening of the load ring, which can occur with DIN 580 / standard eye bolts.
RUD VLBGs adjust themselves in the force direction without loosening to the bolt. However, lifting points are often used for turning, rotating and tilting which adds a considerable risk to the lift. When lifts are turned under full load it results in high friction between the bolt head and the rotating connecting element, which subsequently can lead to the opening of the bolt mid lift.
The NEW “ICE-LBG SR” load ring offers an innovative double ball bearing technology which means that lifting, turning or rotating under full loads, vertically or horizontally can now be done safely without any chance of the bolt opening mid lift. The “ICE-LBG SR” therefore offers an ultimate safety factor to the user and the equipment.
The demand for safety lifting and turning at high working load limits resulted in the creation of the completely new bolt quality, the RUD “ICE bolt”. RUD developed the revolutionary patented fine grain steel, which offers an unbelievable impact strength of 56 Joule at temperatures as low of -60°C. It also offers the same insensitiveness against hydrogen embrittlement as an 8.8 bolt.
The RUD ICE-LBG-SR load ring with its ground breaking double ball bearing technology and robust ICE bolt has solved a real problem in the industry. It has provided an ultimate safety factor when lifting, turning, rotating and tilting under full loads. The bolt will securely stay firmly fastened under full loads, vertically or horizontally. Ensure safety to your goods and your operators with the RUD ICE-LBG-SR load ring.
