Load pins are sometimes referred to as force sensing clevis pins, lifting pins, weight pins, force pins, or shear pins but they are all the same in that they are all strain gauge transducers that measure weight. Our load pins are custom designed to our customer’s requirements. Load pin will typically replace the sheave pin of a lifting device. Pin loading must be in one direction only or side loading will occur and reduce pin load accuracy. To this end, keeper plates are often employed to keep the force pin aligned properly.
Meticulously crafted to meet individual customer requirements, these load pins serve as replacements for sheave pins in lifting devices, especially in the mining industry.
Primarily utilized in hoisting and tension load applications, they deliver reliable and precise measurements.
Ensuring unidirectional pin loading is crucial to avoid potential inaccuracies caused by side loading.
Frequent utilization of keeper plates maintains proper alignment, guaranteeing consistent and accurate results.
