    Heavy Duty Offshore Lifting Capability – RUD WBPG 85-200 Tonne Hoist Ring

    in RUD Industrial Chain Products

    Last updated 3 days ago

    RUD’s wide range of lifting applications are used across a variety of working environments from offshore, heavy engineering, and construction, to name a few. Their products have been increasing popular across the offshore industry due to their heavy lift capabilities of up to 200 metric tons, and their robust resistance to corrosion.

    The WBPG 85-200 tonne hoist ring, is one of RUD’s most popular offshore products at the moment, perfect for many heavy engineering, construction and offshore projects.

    For the offshore industry the WBPG has been used to lift heavy cable-laid grommets; the WBPG offers a removable suspension ring in the shape of a shackle to attach the cable-laid grommets to for lifting.

    The WBPG is loadable from any side in the direction of the pivot meaning it is suitable for lifting and turning of heavy loads. It offers threaded holes for the Starpoint VRS for easy vertical assembly. The WBPG is ideal for heavy duty lifting between 85-200 tonnes.

    RUD provide standard and tailored solutions to meet even the most demanding environments, helping to deliver applications that are catered to specific requirements, project aims and environments.



    Rotogrip CS (Compact Solution) Automatic Traction Device

    in ROTOGRIP Automatic Snow Chains

    Last updated 9 days ago

    RUD Chain developed a compact system we call the CS specially designed for low profile vehicles, such as transit busses and motor coaches.

    ROTOGRIP CS meets all U.S. and Canadian chain law requirements and is much more effective than wrap chains. 

           Why Use ROTOGRIP® CS?

    • Additional Traction on Snow Pack and Ice
    • Increasing Passenger & Driver Safety
    • Much Easier to use than wrap chains
    • Eliminates damage to vehicle from broken chain links
    • Eliminates potential workman’s comp issues
    • Reduces cost from paying driver’s extra to wrap tires
    • Drivers are more likely to use Automatic Tire Chains
    • Deploying the system while moving reduces downtime and increases productivity

    Benefits of Using ROTOGRIP® CS

    • All Steel construction
    • Extremely compact for maximum ground clearance
    • Easy to Install, maintain and operate
    • Operates off air in both directions
    • Works just as well in forward & reverse
    • Provides excellent traction at speeds 3-30 mph
    • System is virtually maintenance free; Chain wheel bearings may wear from road vibration
    • Eliminated pivot bolt assembly from classic system
    • Multitude of arms to fit specific applications
    • System can be mounted much further from tire with an increased stroke of 270 degrees

    RUD VLBS Weld-on Lifting Ring

    in RUD Industrial Chain Products

    Last updated 3 days ago

    The VLBS forged out of high tensile CrNiMo steel with an innovative design offers many advantages.


    • The two protective supporting lugs (inside the load ring) are patented and they improve the connection with the attachment in addition they protect the clamping spring.
    • The support effect is exceptional, especially if the ring is side loaded or the lifting point is welded on an uneven work piece.
    • Pink powder coating, a VIP recognition attribute and a heat indicator.
    • Easy and quick to weld assembly.
    • Compact design.
    • High dynamic and static strength.
    • Forged suspension ring acc. to EN 1677, grade 80, electromagnetic crack detected, pink powder coated; meets the requirements of the appropriate safety authorities.
    • The welding block has been forged of material 1.0570 (St 52-3) and clearly stamped with the permissible WLL. The patented distance lugs assist in achieving the correct root weld.
    • Important: By the special weld design (continuous HV), the requirements of DIN 18800 are fulfilled, i.e., a closed weld avoids corrosion and thus suitable for outdoor use.
    • The spring reduces vibration induced noise.

    RUD VRS-F StarPoint Swivel Eyebolt

    in RUD Industrial Chain Products

    Last updated 13 days ago

    Many manufacturing organizations are unaware that the direction of the pull can have a major impact on the working load limit of the standard eyebolt, thus creating a safety hazard. This could ultimately lead to the chance of potentially catastrophic injuries. The proper use of lifting points such as hoist rings, swivel eyebolts, fixed eyebolts and other threaded and welded tools is, even in this modern day, often overlooked. The use of forged eyebolts is still common, and potentially a dangerous practice if not used correctly. The use of inappropriate lifting points and incorrect applications of eyebolts significantly increases the probability of failure. A non-vertical eyebolt lift causes the load rating to seriously diminish. The solution to this problem is the use of proper lifting points that adjust to the direction of the pull which allows full engagement of the bolt, assuring a safe lift.

    RUD has made great efforts to develop and improve on traditional lifting points. The modern design of RUD's lifting points prevents valuable loads from being damaged and are the perfect solution to eliminate unsafe lifts. (read more about modern lifting points) RUD's modern lifting points include the STARPOINT® and the POWERPOINT®;these lifting points offer a viable solution, as they are designed to adjust to the direction of the pull.

    German Technology: Geometric construction and tolerances of the VIP-chains and lifting points are adapted to a higher quality class. Unique design allows for safe lifting in any direction.

    The StarPoint swivels to the direction of the load lift, the WLL is always at the direction of the load.

    • The use of a StarPoint® in place of a traditional eye bolt will eliminate the chance of bent eyes, backed out threads, or over-tightening causing undue stress on the stem.
    • The StarPoint® is available in sizes 1/4" to 2" and metric sizes of M8 through M48
    • Marked working load limits (WLL) are rated at 90° from thread
    • Capacities from .4 to 12 metric tons at 90° and 1 to 32 metric tons at 0°
    • Clear indication of working load limit in metric tons and lbs. for side loading applications
    • Forged material (1.6541) alloy quenched and tempered
    • Distinct Florescent pink powder-coating changes its color when temperatures exceed 200°C. If the Starpoint® reaches temperatures of 400°C, the color changes to a deep black with small bubbles, indicating that the it has been over-heated.
    • Body and bolt, 100% electromagnetic alloy crack tested in accordance with specification EN 1677. Design factor of 4:1 in any direction.
    • No tools required.The STARPOINT® is supplied with an annealed star - profile - key. Simply engage the Hexagon socket bolt with the star - profile - key and use your fingers to respectively tighten or untighten the arrangement . Disengage the key. The STARPOINT® is rotatable!
