There are a number of lifting attachment manufacturers that produce load rings designed for commercial and industrial applications. However, few can compare to RUD’s VLBS weld-on load rings in terms of features, stability, and strength. Here’s a look at some of the many benefits you’ll find in using the VLBS weld-on load ring.
Higher Working Load Limit
RUD VLBS weld-on load rings are now up to 50% stronger than previous models, which mean you can lift loads with peace of mind and confidence. WLLs range from 3,300 lbs (1,500 kg) to 35,300 lbs (16,000 kg), making these load rings reliable enough for use in most applications that require a heavy duty load ring.
Highly Visible, Heat Indication Coating
If you work in a heat-intensive environment, it’s important to know whether or not your lifting equipment is at risk of failing. RUD VLBS weld-on load rings are coated with a special heat-sensitive paint that is unique to the VIP line of lifting equipment. When your load ring reaches temperatures above 392°F (200oC), it will change colors indicating how much heat that the load ring has been exposed to; excessive heat can seriously diminishing the working load limit (WLL). The power coating allows you to determine whether continuing to lift your loads is safe given heat conditions.
The RUD VLBS weld-on load ring is forged out of the 100% crack detected high strength material CrNiMo with 2 patented inner supporting lugs. The optimized support shape at the suspension ring enables a strong support at loads 90° to the plane of the eye. A protected spring keeps the ring bracket in every required position, and also reduces vibration induced noise.
Pivots a Full 180o
Finally, you can achieve maximum load stability with the VLBS weld-on load ring. The ring is designed to pivot a full 180o from the weld point, making it easy to lift and lower all kinds of loads without concern for tilting or uneven weight distribution.
