Turn, Swivel, Twist Loads

October 25, 2012

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 new generation PowerPoint®.The PowerPoint-Star Is an extremely robust pink hook that has the ability to pivot in any direction, allowing all common sling types to be quickly and safely attached without having to use additional equipment (shackles). The innovative design of The PowerPoint-Star allows for smooth turning and ensures the lifting points and loads are not damaged. The double ball-bearing guarantees that even under a full load, the PowerPoint® can be turned in a 90° position from the bolt centre line.

The inventive design of the RUD PowerPoint-Star offers a long line of advantages. Firstly they provide an exceptional safety factor, a paramount feature when lifting and moving heavy goods. They reduce costs in damages to loads by having the ability to pivot in any direction allowing all lifting and turning of goods to run smoothly. Time is valuable in any working environment and no company wants wasted time. The lifting points save production time due to the fact that there is no need for additional equipment and no wasted time changing lifting devices.

As one of the world’s largest manufacturers of lifting and lashing applications combined with their extensive range of products and knowledge in the market, RUD are continually innovating and developing their extensive product range to stay at the forefront of their customers’ demands.
