RUD Ketten, Rieger & Dietz GmbH u. Co. KG presents a hoist ring with a spring mechanism to ensure the anchor point turns in the load direction while raising, removing bracket damage from large shear forces and bending or breakage from sudden bracket turns. The spring also prevents a bracket 90-degree position and moves it in the direction of the optimal force transfer during lifting, avoiding a sudden dropping of the load.

In addition, the hoist ring’s round bracket design achieves a secure and reliable sit for the hook, providing optimal force transfer and preventing component damage or tilting of the hook. It utilizes screw technology that combines maximum strength with high toughness to withstand high statically and dynamically bending loads. Additionally, the anchor point is reinforced at locations most exposed to loads, increasing load capacities as high as 30 percent compared to comparable sizes.

The hoist ring also offers abrasion lenses to determine whether the anchor point has reached discard criteria, as well as an undetachable but changeable combi-head screw for easy handling. It is available with screw diameters of ½-inch, 5/8-inch, ¾-inch, 1-inch and 1¼-inch, and it will suit engineering, tool construction, the automotive and plastics industries and energy sector companies.

An RFID transponder is installed as standard to simplify operating equipment inspection, enabling the anchor point to be identified by a factory-set ID number transferable by laptop or mobile device to corresponding software tools. Users can manage test data and documents either in their own databases or through a cloud-based resource management tool. This reduces inspection costs and times and leads to more process reliability.
