Straightpoint (UK) Ltd Launches Load Cell Hire Division

31 January 2012

UK based Straightpoint (UK) Ltd, the world leaders in the design and manufacture of force measurement, load monitoring and suspended weighing load cells, have launched a load cell hire division. The load cell hire division launched due to popular demand for all load cell force sensors ranging from 500kg to 300 tonnes.
Load cell hire products can be shipped to anywhere in the world and can be hired on a weekly or longer term basis. Prices start at just £80 per week and the range comprises of both compression and tension load cells. All are pre-calibrated and supplied with certificates and a 12 month warranty. The tension load cell fleet includes the popular Radiolink plus and Loadlink plus ranges as well as the Miniweigher Plus and compression cell ranges.

Hire Services was introduced in August 2011 to allow customers to hire load cell force sensors to meet demands on a weekly or longer term basis.

Managing Director of Straightpoint (UK) Ltd, David Ayling, says “Hire Services are perfect for clients who hire regularly or those wanting a load cell for a short period of time or single project. Hire Services were introduced to meet the varying demands of our customers especially in an economic climate where businesses cannot always afford to invest capital as easily. Whilst our load cells are an important safety measure for many industries very often they are only required on a project basis.”

Mike Whalen, a hire service user from RS Industrial, added “We started using Straightpoint Hire Services in August 2011and find it is an excellent option for RS Industrial because the equipment we need is generally available from stock and of a type we couldn’t usually get from our previous sources, so we had to compromise with hand held wired read-outs etc. Straightpoint Radio Link has solved this issue. To date we have been very pleased with the customer service, availability and delivery of the items required.”
