Danny's Rigging Den: Why Initial Inspection of Rigging Hardware & Slings is Required and Critical

Posted by Danny Bishop on Feb 19, 2018 8:00:00 AM

We all have heard of rigging accidents, injuries and even fatalities that may have been prevented if the rigging gear and/or slings had been properly inspected before the shift began or during its use.

Devil is in the Details-CrosbyIP Screw Style Clamp

Posted by Crosby on Jan 31, 2018 2:03:05 PM

"Devil is in the Details" 

The CrosbyIP IPSC10 screw style clamp is suitable for use in positioning and turning steel plates and sections.  TheCrosbyIP Logo.jpg pivots (clamp pads) of screw clamps are usually small in size, but actually do all the hard work. When it comes to safety of life and load, CrosbyIP takes care of every little detail of their clamps. The pivots of CrosbyIP clamps undergo a proprietary hardening process, resulting in a strong, yet ductile core and an extremely high surface hardness. To make sure that the pivot keeps the specified hardness and strength, no further surface treatment is done, as this may induce unwanted reactions (such as hydrogen embrittlement).

So, whatever you are lifting or handling, choose CrosbyIP Lifting Clamps
