OTH Pioneer Rigging Leads North America Sales and Service for Remote-Controlled Crane Hooks
OTH Pioneer Rigging has partnered with Ludwig System GmbH & Co. KG, creator of the remote-controlled lifting system, LudwigHook, to bring the solution to North America. The LudwigHook lifting device is an alternative to traditional lifting hooks. It is proven in steel erection and building supply delivery applications as a way to speed up the rigging process and reduce risk to workers by keeping them from manually unhooking rigging.
The LudwigHook system was introduced to the European construction market in 2012 and originally designed to meet CE Certification standards.
“In order to bring the remote-controlled lifting solution to North America, we worked with the creator to implement the necessary safety features to comply with federal safety regulations,” said Oliver Gleize, product manager for OTH Pioneer Rigging.
The hooks are OSHA, ASME, UL/CSA, and FCC/IC compliant, and there are more than 500 units already in use in North America.
OTH Pioneer Rigging has permanent customer service for North American users and provides 24-hour shipping on spare parts to any jobsite within the U.S. and Canada. OTH Pioneer Rigging also offers annual inspections and allows new users a 1-week trial free of charge.
Radio remote control with a range of 60,9 m is used to trigger the opening mechanism. The opening mechanism of the hook switches off when lifting over 25 kg, ensuring that the load cannot be dropped during a lift. When the load is set down, the opening mechanism switches on allowing the user to release the hook.
The LudwigHook is available in 2 models, with working load limits of 2,000 kg, and 5,260 kg. Users can synchronize an unlimited number of hooks on the same remote, in any combination, to achieve scalable lifting capacity.
