10,400kN Load Pin for Offshore Crane


LCM System have designed and manufactured a 10,400kN (1060 tonne) load pin that will be installed in an offshore A-Frame crane to provide load monitoring during lifting operations. This stainless steel load pin has a whopping 400mm diameter, is 1075mm long and weighs over 1 tonne. The load pin features a 550mm grease way, has an integral amplifier to provide a 4-20mA output and is environmentally sealed to IP67. Calibration was carried out in our 1500 tonne test machine (shown below) and an accuracy of better than 0.5% of the rated load was achieved. It was despatched this week to our customer; a crane manufacturer that specialises in providing bespoke lifting solutions to the wind energy, marine and offshore industries.
