Worlifts opts for Straightpoint load cell

Worlifts is using a 300-tonne capacity Straightpoint compression load cell to record data on its newest test machine for hydraulic cylinders and jacks.

Based in the UK, Worlifts provides a range of services related to the supply, hire, maintenance, test and repair of high-pressure hydraulic tools and other lifting and rigging equipment. It recently added a 500-tonne capacity unit, which tests both the company’s own equipment in its hire fleet plus customers’ jacks and cylinders.

Paul Smith, sales director at Worlifts, said: “We decided that we needed to modernise and upgrade our testing facilities to allow us to carry out testing more efficiently and to a larger capacity. The focal point of this initiative was to increase our capacity to 500 tonnes statically and incorporate the load cell for dynamic testing.”

Smith explained that the load cell, which is screwed into position, is easily removed for high-capacity, static tests or others where such technology is not required.
