The ICE Mini – A Small Chain with a Huge Capacity

7th April 2016

"For many years, the RUD Lifting Means department has included the world’s smallest sling chain in its range for lifting loads. The idea first started with a 4 mm sling chain with quality grade 8 and a capacity of 500 kg. Then the capacity for grade 100, VIP quality, was increased to 630 kg for single strands. Now in ICE grade 120 with an increase in capacity of 800 kg. It’s certainly incredible that you can use a complete adjustable-length 2-strand chain with a length of 1 meter, weighing just 1.4 kg, to lift loads weighing up to 1.12 tons.

An unusual application for a RUD "ICE" chain!
