measurement cell that incorporates Bluetooth technology. Straightpoint already offers wireless


load links, load shackles and compression load cells that are Bluetooth 4.2 enabled. The Bluelink range is designed for


customers that prefer to use mechanical force measurement products, but want the option of reading data at a distance of up to 100 m on an iOS or Android smartphone. David Ayling, global business


development director for load monitoring


Straightpoint unveils Bluelink load cell S


traightpoint has introduced its Bluelink load cell – a 6.5-tonne capacity mechanical force


solutions at Straightpoint, said: “This is not an alternative to our state-of-the-art systems, but a step towards the latest wireless technology, perhaps for professionals only just beginning their migration from traditional solutions.” Rigged using industry standard


shackles, Bluelink measures 156 mm from eye to eye. The compact, lightweight design does not sacrifice on strength with a safety factor of over 500 percent, said Straightpoint. Meanwhile, Straightpoint has


appointed lifting equipment supplier Dutest as a distributor of its range of load cells throughout the UAE.


Mammoet’s Focus crane to launch by 2020


Mammoet is moving forward with the development of its Focus crane concept, which it claims will be the ideal heavy lift solution for projects in confined spaces. Mammoet explained that


the Focus can be erected vertically in a very small area – 22 m x 22 m for assembly and operation – meaning the machine is suited for projects in busy inner-city areas and congested spaces. Following the development of detailed designs in 2018, Mammoet confirmed that the


concept is finalised and is ready to be launched on the market. The upper structure of the


crane is on a pedestal, which helps the crane remain stable and lowers the ground bearing pressure to less than 10 tons (9.1 tonnes) per sq m. The Focus will utilise a climbing frame to build itself vertically, as opposed to the initial principle of an extension ladder. Mammoet said that it


expects the Focus crane to be available in the second quarter of 2020.
