Straightpoint, a Crosby owned company, has named US Cargo Control as an official supplier. In addition to providing a large selection of essential lifting and rigging equipment, including wire rope slings, chain slings, polyester round slings, shackles and more – the online retailer now offers complementary load cell monitoring tools in a variety of styles and capabilities.

Through this partnership, US Cargo Control now offers the full line of popular Straightpoint products including tension load cells (Radiolink Plus and Wirelink Plus), compression load cells, clamp on line tensionmeters, running line dynamometers, shackle load cells and digital crane scales.

Load cells translate pressure into electrical signals that allow operators of various lifting and rigging applications to precisely measure and safely monitor the tension of loads involving wire rope, guy wire, synthetic rope, shackles, and more. They are commonly used in oil and gas, shipping, construction, renewable energies, lifting and cranes, mining, staging, test and inspection and military applications. Load monitoring load cells not only help prolong the life of valuable lifting and rigging equipment, but they can also drastically improve safety on the job and prevent costly accidents, the company said.

“We understand that safety and reliability is of the utmost importance for industrial rigging and heavy lift jobs,” said Aaron Orsak, business development manager, load monitoring, The Crosby Group. “These Straightpoint load cells allow operators to receive tension readouts from a safe distance, up to 3,280-feet away, and just because they’re electronic doesn’t mean they’ll break. These products are designed to be beat up, tossed around, and still provide accurate readings.”

Through this partnership, US Cargo Control now offers the full line of popular Straightpoint products including tension load cells (Radiolink Plus and Wirelink Plus), compression load cells, clamp on line tensionmeters, running line dynamometers, shackle load cells and digital crane scales.
