AT HOME INTERNATIONALLY.

Not only our products, but also RUD’s solution and consulting expertise are available to you all over the world. This is ensured by a large number of subsidiaries, associated companies and specialised RUD trade partners. Satisfied users of RUD lifting and lashing solutions can also be found in almost all industrial sectors.

TRADITION MEETS FUTURE.

Time and again, RUD is at the forefront of important developments. Many things considered standard today for lifting and lashing originated from RUD’s think tank. In 1953, RUD was the first chain manufacturer to receive the inspection stamp H1 for high-strength chains, in 1972 it was the first to receive approval for grade 8 (H1-8) and in 2007 for round steel chains of the highest grade 12 (D1-12) (ICE). To simplify test processes, we have long equipped many products with RFID transponders as standard and offer a complete hardware and software system for efficient test management. The latest milestone: In 2019, RUD presented the first lifting point that “thinks” and can thus avoid dangerous transverse loads. There is still a lot for us to do, join us into the future.

AWARD-WINNING SERVICE.

Numerous awards prove it: RUD’s innovative strength and performance are outstanding – in the industry and beyond

SPECIAL FEATURES OF
RUD LIFTING POINTS.

RUD lifting points have stood for top quality, ergonomics and safety in lifting technology and load securing for many decades. More than 700 tested boltable and weldable lifting point 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. Thanks to its unique variety of models, RUD can supply the perfect lifting point for every conceivable application

RUD has long been focussing on solutions for demanding lift tasks. Many hundreds of application-specific products now make up the world’s largest range of lifting points. Our modern and tested product solutions increase safety for people and loads as well as efficiency. They can also drastically reduce the handling times that are not included in any calculation.

 

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 can withstand 4–5 times the WLL until they break. The boltable variants are powder-coated in the striking pink or magenta colour. At many points, the RUD design engineers have integrated patented wear markings and there are clear details showing the minimum WLL for the negative possible loading direction. The most common variants are tested by the Employer’s Liability Insurance Association, which is documented by a test certificate and a test stamp.

 
Lifting_Points_Main_catalogue_V1_en-13.jpg

DESIGN DOCUMENTS AND
CALCULATION PROGRAMS.

RUD has design documents in 2D and 3D as well as calculation programs for the solution of your lifting tasks. This is important because when calculating the correct WLL of individual lifting points, a series of factors must be taken into account, such as:

 

  • the number of strands to be lifted,

  • the influence of the angle conditions during the lifting process

  • the shape of the design part (symmetrical or asymmetrical).

A lifting point is an important part of the lifting means system and connects the load with the crane when lifting, turning, rotating and moving cargo. Lifting points are eyebolts, eyes, flanges etc. which the lifting means are attached to using hooks, shackles or other connecting elements.

WHAT IS ACTUALLY
A LIFTING POINT?

 
Lifting_Points_Main_catalogue_V1_en-14.jpg

WHAT TYPES OF LIFTING POINTS ARE AVAILABLE?

BOLTABLE LIFTING POINTS.

When it comes to lifting loads, boltable lifting points are generally used. In more than 40 years of experience with lifting points, RUD has continually developed them further and decisively improved them. Boltable lifting points can be installed as necessary. If they are no longer necessary or would get in the way during the further working process, they can be removed with little effort. Due to their wide range of threads, they can be attached to almost any load. This makes them very flexible in use.

 

RUD lifting points are designed for a dynamic load of at least 20,000 load cycles, they are tested at an overload of 50 %. Their WLL range from 100 kg to 250 t. The bolts on our lifting points for boltable connections are 100 % crack-tested. They offer quadruple safety in every loading direction. In addition, all the load-bearing parts have been crack-tested and load-tested in accordance with EN 1677.

 
Lifting_Points_Main_catalogue_V1_en-15.jpg

Weldable lifting points are used in approximately 25 % of the constructions. Weldable RUD lifting points (weld-on points) are permanently connected to the load. The advantage: There is no need to unscrew the lifting point, e. g. when rotating and turning loads. A clear plus in terms of safety. RUD weldable lifting points are designed for a dynamic load of at least 20,000 load cycles, they are tested at an overload of 50 %. Their WLL range from 630 kg to 100 t, allowing them to offer quadruple safety in every loading direction. In addition, all the load-bearing parts have been crack-tested and load-tested in accordance with EN 1677.

 

RUD weld-on points are suitable for every common welding process. The weld-on blocks consist of a easy to weld material and the suspension rings are made from drop-forged, high-strength quenched and tempered steel in lightweight construction. Clear specifications are always available for the corresponding welding preparation and execution. It is crucial that it is followed exactly and that the weld seam is then checked for correctness.

 

Important: Welding must be carried out by a qualified welder in accordance with DIN EN 2871. The material of the welding blocks can be found in the user manual. The connecting surfaces must be free of impurities, oil, paint etc.

WELDABLE LIFTING POINTS.

Boltable and weldable lifting points can be divided into rigid and rotating/ swivelling lifting points.

 

RIGID LIFTING POINTS.

Rigid lifting points are eyebolts or weldable D-rings. Because their pulling direction cannot be changed, they are preferably used in single leg lifts. They must therefore not be flexible.

ROTATING AND SWIVEL LIFTING POINTS.

The area of application for rotating or swivelling lifting points is usually a multiple leg lift, because in this application the lifting points must align themselves in the direction of pull when the load is lifted. Rotating and swivelling lifting points are therefore more flexible than rigid variants.

RIGID AND ROTATING / SWIVEL LIFTING POINTS.

 
Lifting_Points_Main_catalogue_V1_en-16.jpg

As a designer or user you should always carry out an appropriate risk analysis before you determine a lifting point. No matter whether it is an integrated suspension ring or an attachable of lifting point. In doing so, please observe the following aspects:

 

  • The lifting point should not have any sharp edges.

 

  • The suspension ring diameter must be suitable for the hooks being used.

 

  • Material thickness and distances from the edges must be chosen in a way that safety latches of hooks will not be damaged and fold in.

 

  • The suspension must be designed with 4-fold protection against breakage in any direction, as loading forces in all conceivable directions could occur during manufacture, transport and assembly of the structure.

 

  • An eye-catching colour for the marking of the lifting point is highly recommended.

WHAT IS THE RELEVANCE OF THE DESIGN?

This is another aspect that is becoming increasingly important: Today, a machine – to give you an example – is expected to offer not only technological advantages but also an attractive design. For this reason, many manufacturers consider it very important that an installed lifting point also meets the design requirements of the machine. Especially when it should stay permanently on the machine. With a DIN-580 eyebolt or a do-it-yourself weld-on block, these expectations can hardly be met. This is why RUD engineers have also attached great importance to a modern, contemporary design – for example with the patented octagon shape.

 
Lifting_Points_Main_catalogue_V1_en-17.jpg
 
Lifting_Points_Main_catalogue_V1_en-18.jpg

ROTATING AND TURNING LOADS WITH LIFTING POINTS.

Special RUD lifting points for rotating and turning have special application advantages and therefore a considerable added value. They are equipped with a ball bearing, making them the perfect choice for these applications.

 

The advantage: Thanks to the ball bearing, the forces resulting from lifting are converted shock-free into a rotating movement. Such shock-free rotation under load is not possible without ball bearings, because impact to the complete system cannot be avoided. Read how to use the lifting point properly below.

ROTATING AND TURNING: POINTS TO WATCH FOR WHEN SELECTING THE LIFTING POINT.

Clearance to the load.

  • In the case of sensitive surfaces, choose a lifting point that guarantees enough clearance to the load and does not damage it.

 

  • Important: choose suitable lifting means.

 

  • Avoid contact of the lifting point with the load.

 

The tonnage.

 

  • Take the overall weight of the load into account.

 

  • Taking the rotating movement (swinging of the load) and resulting dynamism into account.

 

  • Note the direction of rotation: Which direction does the load swing in?

 

  • How is the load lifted?

 

  • When determining the maximum WLL, take the calculation for a 2-leg suspension into account, as all legs generally do not bear the load.

The lifting point design.

 

  • Is the lifting point centric or off-center?

 

  • What requirements do the loaded goods make on the lifting process?

 

Attachment to the load: boltable or weldable.

 

  • Should be lifting point be boltable? This allows it to be mounted and removed as required.

  • Should the lifting point be weldable? In this way it remains permanently connected to the load and cannot untwist.

 
Lifting_Points_Main_catalogue_V1_en-19.jpg

GENERAL SELECTION CRITERIA
FOR LIFTING POINTS.

1. Determine the overall weight of the load.

 

2. Then determine the number of lifting points to be used according to the possible installation position.

3. In accordance with the operating instructions, observe the reduction factors resulting from the tilt angle and the temperature influences.

4. Select the correct lifting point according to the type of use with a WLL that exceeds the weight determined under point 3.

HOW MANY LIFTING POINTS
CAN BE USED ON A LOAD?

  • You can attach up to four lifting points on a construction, which you distribute depending on the properties of the load. During installation, ensure that the load hangs straight when being lifted and, for example, does not tilt – if necessary, use special lifting means from the RUD range.

  • Important: Choose the right size of lifting point and tighten it properly.

  • Also take into account that the WLL changes depending on the angle (steep angle: 0–45°, flat angle: 45–60°)

ASYMMETRICAL LOADS.

  • Caution: With an asymmetrical load and several lifting points, one lifting point must bear the whole load in extreme cases, therefore load factor = 1.

DGUV rule 500-100, chapter 2.8

 
Lifting_Points_Main_catalogue_V1_en-20.jpg

Every construction with a dead weight exceeding 25 kg requires a suitable suspension or a device for attaching a lifting point – or several. This is not just a general view, it is the law. The specification is found in the European Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC 5. Their addressees are in particular designers of machines, plants, moulds etc.

 

The only question: Which lifting point is right for the task?

We provide you with sound decision-making aids and recommendations.

 
Lifting_Points_Main_catalogue_V1_en-21 .jpg

BOLTABLE LIFTING POINTS.

Features and applications.

“SMART” LIFTING POINT ACP-TURNADO

The suspension ring of a center pull hoist ring can easily get stuck in the worst case position when the load is lifted, resulting in a dangerous transverse load. These can damage or destroy the bolt. If the load then drops suddenly, this can cause damage to the cargo, lifting means or crane. With the ACP-TURNADO, a spring mechanism prevents the suspension ring from stopping at all. Instead it immediately turns in the loading direction when lifting the load. Moreover, it offers a much higher WLL with a comparable size. This makes the ACP-TURNADO the ideal lifting point if such damage is to be excluded at all costs.

LOAD RING TYPE VLBG-PLUS

Load rings such as the VLBG-PLUS are characterised by their extremely low construction with a pivoting suspension ring and an eccentric force introduction. An important advantage: They automatically align themselves correctly in the respective loading direction.

 
Lifting_Points_Main_catalogue_V1_en-22.jpg

BOLTABLE LIFTING POINTS.

Features and applications.

VRS-STARPOINT

The VRS-STARPOINT in octagonal shape aligns itself around the installed bolt into the load force direction. This excludes dangerous untightening (like rigid DIN-580 bolts). Thanks to high-strength quenched and tempered steels and ICE-Bolt, the modern lifting point allows a 4 to 5 times higher WLL or half the diameter size than DIN 580. Current tests of the Employers Insurance Association (BG) also confirm the positive tests in the worst critical loading direction of 90° in the load ring plane.

 

If the lifting points are only used during the manufacturing of a machine component, choose the VRS-STARPOINT variant with integrated Easy-Fit wrench. It can be installed and removed easily, quickly and without additional tools.

 

If the lifting points should stay permanently at the load they must be tightened with a recommend torque moment. This installation is particularly simple with a VRS socket wrench (suitable for a conventional torque wrench).

 

Alternatively the use of bolt securing glue, f. e. Loctite is recommended. The STARPOINT is available in several bolt lengths with corresponding washers and crack detected lock nuts in different thread types.

INOX-STAR

Is high resistance in sea water or in environments with high concentration of chlorine ions an important requirement? Then the INOX-STAR in penta shape (5-corner) and stainless version (made from 1.4462 Duplex steel) is the right choice.

 
 
Lifting_Points_Main_catalogue_V1_en-23.jpg

EYE NUT VRM-STARPOINT

If threaded rods are provided at the load to attach a lifting points or if bolts can be inserted from the opposite side? Then VRM-STARPOINT might be the optimum solution. The VARIO eye nut is fastened with a ring spanner and the suspension ring can turn into the load direction.

POWERPOINT®

The PowerPoint®-Collection is a universal solution for a boltable lifting point. The products are equipped with double ball bearings and thus also take over the rotatable WLL 90° to the bolt-on direction.

Variant PP-VIP:

A VIP-chain of the corresponding size can directly be connected to the clevis. This allows the shortest construction connection between two parts.

Variant PP-B:

The patented clevis design allows the connection of various RUD-specific components, e. g. a suspension link to attach a hook or shackles.

Variant PP-S:

 

With the PowerPoint®-Star, thanks to the movably mounted hook, all common lifting means such as round slings, wire ropes, chains and hooks can be universally connected (e. g. without shackles). It is the ideal variant for the designer, as he does not know in advance with which lifting means will be used to lift his construction. In addition, the large distance from the suspension protects the load from damage.

Lifting_Points_Main_catalogue_V1_en-24.jpg

BOLTABLE LIFTING POINTS.

Features and applications.

RIGID LIFTING POINT B-ABA

A rigid boltable lifting point like the B-ABA is always a sensible choice when the construction part is subjected to heavy vibration. But also when the lifting means are attached with one hand only. The nicely designed B-ABA can be loaded from any side and uses bolts made from the patented ICE-Bolt material.

LOAD RING VWBG

The VWBG load ring with ball bearing allows vertical rotation under full load. Tipping and flipping actions are therefore possible and safe. Even loading 90° (rectangular) to the ring plane is possible. This load force occurs, for example, when a plate must be pivot from the vertical into a horizontal position. Further advantages are a relatively small contact surface and the larger clearance of the suspension to the bolt-on surface. This means that even with a 90° loading, the attached hooks cannot damage the load.

LOAD RING VWBG-V

On the VWBG-V (V = Vario) the threaded part consists of a bolt (ICE-Bolt). This enables a higher WLL and the installation of a bolt of any length with a selectable thread type.

 
Lifting_Points_Main_catalogue_V1_en-25.jpg

LOAD RING THREADED RBG

If a split force introduction via several bolts into the construction makes sense and if the lifting point should be low and pivotable, there are several possibilities depending on the load weight. The RBG is available in various bolt lengths. As a design engineer, you can therefore make your choice according to your internal processing possibilities, space conditions and split force introduction.

LOAD RING THREADED VRBG

FLANGE LOAD RING HEAD FLANGE T-FRB / BASE FLANGE B-FRB (“FLARIBO”)

The special solution “FLARIBO” (flange load ring) was developed to large tube segments, f. e. for wind towers. It fulfils a whole package of requirements: 180° pivoting, various flange diameters, split force introduction and a large distance between bolt-on surface and load to avoid damaging the tubes. In addition, it is equipped with a patented axial bushing disc for an optimised 90° WLL, which in turn has been transferred to side parts.

Depending on the required WLL, the VRBG is a sensible alternative if the force is to be applied via several bolts and the lifting point is to pivot. Four crack-tested bolts are used for fastening in this variant. A force is also permitted at 90° to the load ring plane. The VRBG is available in a WLL of 10 t and 16 t and thereby provides a high-performance solution in case of high demands.

Lifting_Points_Main_catalogue_V1_en-26.jpg

BOLTABLE LIFTING POINTS.

Features and applications.

LOAD RING-PLATE-THREADED WBPG

The removable suspension ring in the shape of a shackle is mounted by ball bearing and is 360° rotatable and 180° pivotable. With the WBPG, a WLL of up to 250 tons is possible.

ATTACHMENT BLOCK VABH-B

The VABH-B attachment block is ideal for trusses and beams, but also as a lifting point which has a WLL in a clearly defined direction and where lifting means are to be hooked in and secured as quickly as possible. The block with a robust, forged safety latch is fastened with ICE-Bolts and allows an extreme area of application of 150° in the hook plane and full lateral WLL up to 45°. It can be combined with all conventional lifting means without a connecting element. Weldable variant: VABH-W.

DIGRESSION: LASHING POINTS

Every machine, every mould and every large part is moved not only during production or in use, but also during transport to the place of use or installation. This is associated with dangers which can lead to considerable damage to the valuable load. Suitable, secure lashing points should therefore be considered at the design stage. Legislation also stipulates that machines, for example, must have suitable devices not only for lifting but also for horizontal road transport. Important for you: When lifting, the safety factor of lifting points must be 4 times the corresponding WLL, while lashing operations only ask for a safety factor of 2 times the permissible lashing force. Therefore lifting points must only be used as lashing points and cannot be used for lifting. Lifting points must only be loaded with a lashing force corresponding to the stated WLL.

 
 
Lifting_Points_Main_catalogue_V1_en-27.jpg

WELDABLE LIFTING POINTS.

Features and applications.

LOAD RINGS VLBS AND LOAD RINGS VRBS/VRBK

Should the lifting point swivel to prevent dangerous tripping hazards? Are no permanent rotary movements foreseeable with the construction part? Then types VLBS and VRBS/VRBK are the right choice.

LOAD RING VLBS

Patented supporting noses are located inside the octagon shaped forged D-Ring, which allows also loading in the 90° side direction of the suspension ring. A clamping spring underneath the weld-on block also reduces the generation of rattling noise.

Type VLBS is available in the following special designs:

 

  • Type VLBS-P for welding on pipes with a pipe diameter of 80 mm to 220 mm.

 

  • Type VLBS-U-LT with deep temperature usage down to –45 °C.

 
Lifting_Points_Main_catalogue_V1_en-28.jpg

WELDABLE LIFTING POINTS.

Features and applications.

LOAD RING VRBS-FIX

The type VRBS-FIX is particularly suitable where it makes sense to apply the force through the weld seam at two points. This results in smaller and lower cost welds that are continuous (no crevice corrosion). The force can then be introduced onto thinner sheets. The patented bearing system also allows a perfect WLL up to 90° to the load ring plane of the 180° pivoting suspension ring – and this under full load. A patented radial clamping spring reduces the noise and keeps the weld-on blocks at a precisely defined distance during welding

For assemblies with 90° edges it often makes sense to fix the lifting points on the corners. This means that with one lifting point positioned at the corner instead of two lifting attached to each side surface loads can be rotated and turned. The type VRBK-FIX largely corresponds to the type VRBS-FIX with two split force introduction points. However, the weld-on block is designed so that it adapts exactly to the 90° edge of the load. A continuous circular HV weld seam prevents the lifting point from dreaded sub corrosion.

LOAD RING VRBK-FIX

 
Lifting_Points_Main_catalogue_V1_en-29.jpg

The Welding PowerPoint®-Collection is a universal solution for weldable lifting points. The products are equipped with double ball bearings. This offers the perfect solution for rotating and flipping actions under load. Thanks to the universal, non mix-up VIP connection for chain, hook and eye, they can be combined with all standard lifting means without additional connecting elements

WPP

Rigid weld-on-blocks make sense:

 

  • for construction parts that are subject to constant rotary motion, strong vibrations and shocks;

 

  • if the height of the lifting points does not cause obstruction;

 

  • if the lifting means are to be suspended with only one hand;

 

  • for application on thinner workpieces.

 

On many constructions, however, you will find weld-on flame cut plates, which have considerable and often serious disadvantages. The ABA from RUD (lifting point that can be loaded on all sides) meets all requirements for modern, safe lifting lugs – and all this in an attractive design. The requirements of DIN EN 1090 are fulfilled thanks to the endless circular fillet weld seam. Since there is no risk of contact/crevice corrosion, ABA can also be used for outdoor constructions

LIFTING POINT ABA THAT CAN BE
LOADED ON ALL SIDES

 
Lifting_Points_Main_catalogue_V1_en-30.jpg

INSTALLATION OF LIFTING POINTS.

Whether boltable or weldable:

Please observe the following:

 

  • Design the lifting point so that the exerted forces can be absorbed by the base material without deformation.

 

  • For boltable variants, the load and material must be suitable for bolting the lifting point in up to the contact surface.

 

  • Attach the lifting point as follows to avoid impermissible stresses such as twisting or turning of the load:

- Single strand attachment: vertically above the load centre.

- Double strand attachment: above and on both sides of the centre of gravity.

- Three- or four-strand attachment: evenly in one plane around the loads centre of gravity.

 

  • Symmetry of load: Determine the necessary WLL of the individual lifting point for symmetrical and non-symmetrical loads using the following physical equation:

  • Prevent any damage to the lifting means by a WLL with sharp edges.

  • Check the lifting points regularly and before each commissioning for a tight bolt fitting (torque moment), heavy corrosion, wear occurrence, cracks in the weld seam, deformations etc

IMPORTANT: When installing the lifting points, follow the instructions supplied.

ICE-BOLT – THE NEW BOLT CLASS FOR LIFTING POINTS.

FROM THE CHAIN TO THE BOLT

When it comes to materials for lifting means or lifting points, RUD has always been one step ahead of its time. RUD’s specialists developed the well-known ICE chain a few years ago. Thanks to the “Innovative Chain Evolution”, an ICE lifting or lashing chain can now replace a grade 8 chain of the next larger nominal thickness. The advantage: The dead weight of the ICE pink-coloured chain is more than 30 percent lower, the working ergonomics is noticeably higher.

HIGH SAFETY EVEN AT LOW TEMPERATURES AND EXTREMELY HIGH TEMPERATURES

However, not only chains, but also the fastening bolts of modern screw able lifting points perform very hard work. Every day they have to withstand the highest loads. And not just in one direction, but in every conceivable one. These extreme bending and shearing forces must be safely absorbed both statically and dynamically. This is just as true at Arctic temperatures as it is at extremely high temperatures.

 
Lifting_Points_short_catalogue_V1_en-9X .jpg

THE ICE-BOLT: HIGHER WORKING LOAD LIMITS WITH SMALLER BOLT DIAMETERS.

After intensive development work, the RUD engineers succeeded in transferring the innovative ICE material to the fastening bolts of the RUD lifting points: The ICE-BOLT was born. After all, the patented fine-grained steel of the ICE chains is virtually predestined to meet the high safety requirements in lifting technology. For example, the breaking forces of M8 – M16 could be increased by 88 % compared to 8.8 bolts and by 44 % compared to 10.9 bolts. This allows an M24 ICE-BOLT to be used instead of an M30-8.8 bolt. And this with at least the same, but usually higher breaking force. In terms of bending strength, the ICE-BOLT effortlessly beats grades 10.9 and 12.9 and even approaches the values of 8.8 bolts

SAFETY MEETS ECONOMY: THE DECISIVE ADVANTAGES OF THE ICE-BOLT.

  • Higher working load limits or thinner bolt diameters.

  • Unmatched high safety factors.

  • Incomparable low temperature resistance down to -60 °C.

  • Maximum strength with particularly high toughness.

  • Particularly high bending resistance at the critical transition between load absorption and load.

  • Reduced wear.

 

In short: RUD lifting points with ICE bolts stand for safety – at grade 12.

The thread of the ICE-BOLT proves itself in the prism bending test. The test shows: The ICE-BOLT masters static and dynamic loads safely.

INCREASE IN THE BREAKING FORCE THANKS TO ICE-BOLT.
