No matter whether with lifting means or lifting points: As a technological think tank, RUD continues to set new standards and as the world market leader we are shaping progress in the field of lifting technologies. Our commitment here: Highest quality and best customer orientation!

RUD lifting points.

A lifting point is an important part of the lifting means system and connects the load with the crane or hoist when lifting, turning, rotating and moving loads. Lifting points are eyebolts, suspensions, flanges, etc. where the sling is attached to, using hooks, shackles or other connection elements.

RUD lifting points have stood for top quality in lifting technology for decades. Ergonomics and safety. More than 700 tested boltable and weldable variants in load ranges up to 250 t meet maximum requirements in all areas of application in combination with the unique variety of application of our ICE and VIP lifting means.

The RUD range includes boltable lifting points with load capacities of up to 250 t and weldable versions with up to 100 t WLL. All load-bearing elements are 100 % crack-tested. They have a design factor of 4 or 5.

RUD lifting means.

In the world of lifting means, chain suspensions form the connection between the sling and the load. They are made up of several components. Chain slings can be purchased fully configured – depending on the weight, size and shape of the load.

Components of a chain sling are:

  • Master link
  • Chain (in one or several strands)
  • End fitting (e.g. hook)
  • Connecting elements if required (to connect two chains)
  • Shortening elements if required (to shorten chains)
  • Further elements if required (e.g. balancer)

Chain slings can be configured very flexibly according to the load to be lifted. The variety of available components and WLL is high, so that a large number of lifting tasks can be solved with one sling. For example, the chains of a sling can be easily and safely extended or shortened using special components.
