Most recently, Australia’s Dynamic Rigging Hire utilized a 100t capacity Straightpoint Radiolink and load cell to perform load testing on two 90.7t capacity Shuttlelift mobile gantry cranes.
Load Test Application Using Shuttlelift Cranes
An end user will use the new Shuttlelift cranes, which measure container weights, to lift pre-cast T-beams at the manufacturing premise in Melbourne’s western suburbs. Previously, load testing was done to comply with Australian Standards. They will also undergo periodic testing to maintain that compliance. In addition, the owner of the cranes linked the services of its mobile crane provider to help with the counterweights.
He also mentioned that the mobile crane provider utilized one of its Franna pick-and-carry cranes to position the counterweights in the super lift tray. The rigging gear and load cell setup weren’t complicated. In addition, the crane technicians monitored the readings and used the load cell to adjust the scale system on the cranes.
Moreover, the Radiolink plus, combined with 120t capacity shackles, was used with the Handheld plus reading device. The rigging team could supervise the load-testing cranes at a safe distance. They used the long-range 2.4GHz version offering a wireless range of 1,000m (3,280 ft). Overall, Nelson said: “The Radiolink plus has been widely covered in earlier case studies, but in every application, its various features are showcased at the coalface of our industry.”
