USAGE OF LIFTING DEVICES
Using a specially designed lifting device can help you increase the effectiveness and safety of your lifts while also securing your goods. If you notice that your application is taking too long to secure or remove each load when using typical rigging slings and hardware; you can consider employing an engineered lifting device to increase the efficiency and safety of your lifts and assist your loads securely. In other words, a lifting device, is a tool or mechanical device that helps to connect your load to a crane or other lifting mechanism.
As mentioned before, attaching a load to a hoist often requires the employment of lifting equipment where different components such as slings, hooks, and rigging hardware, may be needed to be included in lifting devices to assist to their functionality to guaranty that your load is secure so that it can be moved safely from one location to another.
Most manufacturers also carry lifting devices in standard sizes and configurations for common lifting applications like:
- Lifting and moving of pipes or bars
- Lifting and stacking coils
- Lifting, moving, and stacking of sheets, plates, or other horizontally-stacked materials
- Lifting and moving pallets
- Lifting and moving of structural shapes

Custom-built lifting devices are quite common. These engineered lifting devices are built for picking and moving a specific load due to its size, shape, or centre of gravity. They can be built to be operated electronically, hydraulically, or pneumatically; as well as mechanically of which is the most common. A manufacturer will partner with their customer to develop a completely new device from scratch or may modify an existing product design for their specific lifting needs.
