When operating heavy equipment such as cranes and other overhead lifting devices, it’s important to know materials being transported are within the capacity of the equipment moving them. While it may seem obvious that lifting equipment itself is capable, sometimes cables or stress points can fail at much lower tension levels and can be considered weak links. In situations such as these, a known weight is required to ensure safety of operators and other workers.
In other scenarios weight may be required to calculate product cost or for batching purposes. Incorrect weight may result in loss of profit or inconsistent batch quality. Either way, it’s important to have your crane scale calibrated on a regular basis to ensure accurate and safe operation.
With NIST traceable master test standards allowing our technicians to measure tensile force up to 100,000 lbs, J.A. King offers crane scale calibration for a variety of models from leading manufacturers.
