In Crosby Airpes we have extensive experience in the manufacture of components for industrial weighing. In our website you can find everything you need to turn your crane into a high-precision industrial scale.
The evolution of crane scales
Traditionally, weighing heavy loads required cumbersome equipment and often multiple steps in the process. Crane scales have transformed this practice by combining the capabilities of a scale and a crane into one efficient and precise device.
These modern marvels are designed to be attached to a crane’s hook or cable, allowing for the seamless measurement of weights while lifting or moving objects.
Key features of digital crane scales
What advantages can you find on a crane scale?
- Accuracy: digital crane scales offer an exceptional level of precision, making them ideal for applications where accurate weight measurement is critical. With advanced sensors and technology, these scales provide reliable and consistent readings, ensuring that loads are correctly assessed.
- Capacity: these scales come in a wide range of capacities, capable of measuring loads from a few hundred pounds to several tons. This versatility makes them suitable for a variety of industries and tasks.
- Durability: industrial settings can be harsh, with exposure to extreme temperatures, dust, and heavy vibrations. Digital crane scales are built to withstand these conditions, often featuring rugged designs and materials that ensure longevity and reliability.
- Safety: safety is a paramount concern when dealing with heavy loads. Digital crane scales are equipped with safety features such as overload protection and alarms, reducing the risk of accidents and ensuring the well-being of personnel.
- Remote monitoring: many digital crane scales are equipped with wireless technology, enabling remote monitoring and data collection. This feature enhances convenience and efficiency by allowing operators to monitor load weights from a safe distance.
- Data logging: modern crane scales often come equipped with data logging capabilities, enabling the recording and analysis of weight data over time. This can be valuable for quality control, compliance, and performance tracking.
Digital crane scales from Crosby Airpes
Crosby Airpes has extensive experience in the manufacture of digital crane scales. We have digital industrial scales that can be adapted to any type of crane. All our products are manufactured under the strictest safety and quality standards set by the European Union.
All of our design and manufacturing processes are ISO 9001:2000 certified by the renowned German institute TÜV.
This type of electronic industrial scales are perfect to control the entry and exit of product, so they are the perfect complement for any industrial warehouse. With this type of crane you will have a perfect control of all the stock you have.
Weighing hook blocks
Weighing hook blocks are the perfect element for automatically carrying out two tasks at the same time.
A lifting and weighing hook block will allow us to lift any type of load with a hook at the same time as we are weighing it.
With a weighing block two tasks are carried out at the same time: a load is lifted and transported at the same time as it is weighed. In addition, as the block itself performs the weighing, we save the need to install an additional scale and we do not lose height from the ceiling (headroom) with our crane.
Our ATP-100 weighing block can be installed on any type of crane and can be scaled to perform weighing ranging from 2,000 to 250,000 kg. A backlit LED or LCD panel indicates the weight in a precise way, besides being able to control almost all the functions remotely with a remote control system.
Accessories for crane scales
At Crosby Airpes we also have a wide range of accessories to carry out all weighing tasks safely and even more comfortably.
We have a wide variety of displays, electronic and mechanical limiters for all types of cranes, a wide range of load cells for tanks and containers and other accessories such as printers and wireless communication kits for cranes.
Applications and sectors where digital crane scales play a very important role
Digital crane scales are used in a wide variety of sectors to perform heavy weighting operations.
Some of those sectors are:
- Construction: digital crane scales are widely used in construction for tasks like lifting and positioning steel beams, concrete blocks, and other heavy construction materials. Accurate weight measurement is crucial for ensuring structural integrity and safety.
- Shipping and logistics: in the shipping industry, crane scales play a vital role in accurately measuring cargo weight for proper documentation and balance on ships and trucks.
- Manufacturing: digital crane scales are employed in manufacturing processes to ensure that products meet weight specifications. This is particularly important in industries producing items such as automotive parts, machinery, and aerospace components.
- Material handling: warehouses and distribution centers use crane scales to weigh pallets, crates, and containers, ensuring efficient inventory management and adherence to weight limits during transportation.
- Mining and extraction: in mining operations, digital crane scales are used to weigh minerals, ores, and excavation materials, aiding in accurate resource management and ensuring compliance with safety regulations.
