Standard and customised load measuring pins


LCM Systems designs, manufactures and supplies a comprehensive range of Load Measuring Pins (LMP) for a wide range of applications including crane overload protection, winch force monitoring and mooring tension measurement. Alongside standard ranges constructed in high tensile stainless steel, in-house design engineers can also provide customised solutions depending on particular application requirements.

The standard LMPs cover ranges between 500kg and 1500tonne and are proof loaded to 150% of the normal rated load. Environmentally sealed to IP67, they are ideally suited for use in harsh, exposed situations and can be supplied to withstand immersion in seawater. If required, an anti-rotation plate can be supplied as standard along with an integral connector.

LCM Systems has seen a noticeable increase in the number of companies specifying the load pins with internal signal conditioning. Providing 0-10v, 0-5v, 4-20mA, RS485 outputs, this adds further versatility to the products and means that design engineers don’t have to worry about specifying additional instrumentation.

With a 100% focus on the design and manufacture of load cells, LCM Systems also offers a rapid, like-for-like retrofit service for competitors’ systems, providing customers with identical load measuring pins at very competitive prices.
“Our business model includes engineering costs as an overhead and as we don’t run a field sales force we are able to price our products competitively.” says Steve Sargeant, Managing Director. “Our in-house expertise means that we can produce products quickly and efficiently, thereby reducing delivery lead-time.”

So, when time and money is a major consideration for many companies looking for a load pin supplier, choosing LCM Systems can guarantee fast delivery and lower costs.
