Introduction to Metrology

The scales used for aerospace and metrology scales provided by the Scale People have earned a reputation of excellence.

We at the Scale People are thrilled to provide Ron Crane Scales, which specializes in load monitoring and overload prevention systems. The systems are used as crucial safety devices, complementary to lifting equipment for industrial weighing during the lifting process. As such, they also help improve efficiency and reduce potential manufacturing costs. The systems are primarily used for weighing heavy mechanical equipment and ensuring that the load is distributed evenly once lifted by different hanging points. They are also used for horizontal force measurement, like drag force measurement, controlled cable tensioning, and much more. Read on to learn more!

Aerospace and Metrology Scales

The scales used for aerospace and metrology scales provided by the Scale People have earned a reputation of excellence and thousands of repeat customers due to their high quality and safety requirements. These scales have a five-year warranty and are fatigue-rated, according to ASME BTH-1 and IEC 61508. The system has reliable transmission technology, 0.1% accuracy for early detection of overloads, aerospace steel, shackle holes offset at around 90 degrees, and proven wireless technology. They also have a battery life of approximately 2,000 hours on standard disposable batteries transmission range and are lightweight and portable. The scale systems have heavy-duty designs with shock-absorbing mechanisms, minimal headroom loss, various load cells, and large capacities. They are environmentally conscious, with their IP 67/NEMA 4-Weatherproof standard for Ron 2501, which is optional for every other model.

The wireless Ron 2501 dynamometer, provided by the Scale people, is particularly suited to the aerospace industry. It is the smallest, lightest, and most versatile wireless dynamometer on the market, and its excellent design will ensure that the received and indicated value is entirely identical to the transmitted value. Its smaller size makes for much easier portability and minimal headroom loss. The Ron CraneMaster 6000G4 uses an unlimited amount of wireless load cells, a central radio receiver, and a real-time load map. To learn more, visit the Scale People today!
