Large lifting equipment and cranes generally move high to very high loads. In (container) ports, in offshore applications or on construction sites, (failure) safety in the movement of goods and loads is important. Man and machine must be protected equally and a smooth process must be ensured. Among other things, when moving loads, tension links, which are placed directly in the force flow, ensure safe operation in order to prevent overloading of the machinery. These force transducers are available in very small dimensions up to very large formats. Tension links from WIKA with proven thin-film technology guarantee maximum safety in their application thanks to their first-rate quality.
