In December 2012, we announced that we had become official distributors for Crosby shackle load cells.
Now, to complement our ranges of SHK and Telshack Load Measuring Shackles, we now offer Crosby Bow and D anchor safety shackles that can be purchased with or without our link load cells and a selection of Rod End Bearings supplied and calibrated with an associated load cell.
“We became an official distributor for Crosby in December 2012 and were able to offer significant price advantages to customers buying our shackle load cells. Customers also expressed an interest in buying the safety shackles without load cells from a reputable company who could also provide full Crosby traceability. We were in the perfect position to satisfy their requirements.”
As well as the G2130, G2140 and G2150 Crosby Safety Shackles, we have also added a range of spherical rod end bearings to the range. Designed to be used with LCM load cells that have male or female end threads, these rod end bearings allow the application of forces to be to be aligned through the load cells principle measurement axis. This helps to improve the installed accuracy and protect the load cell from any extraneous forces. Manufactured with a steel housing and a case hardened bearing, these new rod ends have the advantage that they are maintenance free and require no lubrication.
