Straightpoint to showcase Insight software

Force measurement equipment manufacturer Straightpoint will display its new wireless centre of gravity software at this year’s Offshore Energy Exhibition and Conference (OEEC), which takes place from October 7-9, 2019 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The software is designed for use with large-capacity load cells and allows users to quickly report weight and centre of gravity before the lift of jackets, topsides, skids and other offshore support structures, said Straightpoint.

David Mullard, business development manager, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) at Straightpoint, said: “The new and improved software is faster, easier to use, and far more graphical than its predecessor. Knowing the weight distribution of heavy items is essential before they are lifted offshore.”

Other products on display at the OEEC exhibition include Straightpoint’s Radiolink plus load cell – a wireless tension load cell capable of weighing and dynamic load monitoring of units weighing up to 500 tonnes.
