Force sensing load pins are a unique type of precision load cell designed to replace existing clevis bolts, shear pins, shear axles, pulley shafts, and other load bearing pins. Load pins can easily and economically be incorporated into a system by simply replacing the existing load bearing pin, making them the solution of choice for monitoring loads on hoisting devices and lifting systems.
Load Pins provide overload protection and load limit data on overhead cranes, travelling cranes, container cranes, and gantry cranes. In addition, load pins are used to monitor hanging weights on oil derricks and coiled tubing injectors, and on all sorts of mechanical lifts, hooks, mooring systems, and cable tension applications.
Our engineers can provide a form-fit-function load pin replacement that eliminates special fixturing and allows your current clevis configuration to be transformed into a precision load monitoring system. We offer one of the largest selections of load pins in the industry with ranges from 3,000 to 1 million pounds, tension or compression operation, and world-class accuracy up to 0.25%.
We also specialize in custom designed load pins, providing one-of-a-kind and application-specific products when necessary. We can provide submersible units, fatigue rated designs, load pins with multiple output, as well as explosion proof and intrinsically safe models. Our proprietary electronics provide high level mV/V, analog and digital outputs including RS232, RS485 and CANbus.
