The rigging hardware belongs to the hardware rig, and its application is very extensive. We need to pay attention to many problems in the process of using and storing. The followings are the precautions for using and storing rigging hardware.


There are two main types of rigging: metal rigging and synthetic fiber rigging.

Metal rigging mainly includes wire rope rigging, chain slings, shackles, hooks, lifting (clamp) pliers, magnetic slings, etc.

Synthetic fiber rigging mainly includes rope and belt rigging made of nylon, polypropylene, polyester, and high-strength and high-modulus polyethylene fibers.

Rigging hardware is widely used in ports, electric power, steel, shipbuilding, petrochemicals, mining, railways, construction, metallurgy and chemical engineering, automobile manufacturing, engineering machinery, paper machinery, industrial control, logistics, bulk transportation, pipelines auxiliary equipment, maritime rescue, marine engineering, airport construction, bridges, aviation, aerospace, venues, and other important industries.

Precautions for the use of rigging hardware

1. Do not use damaged rigging.

2. When hoisting, do not twist or twist the rigging.

3. Don't let the rigging get knotted.

4. Avoid tearing the sewing joints or overloading work.

5. When moving the rigging, don't drag it.

1. Wire rope sling

Before storing the steel wire rope sling, the surface oil should be removed first, and then apply a proper amount of grease, stored in a dry and ventilated place, away from direct sunlight, and avoided contact with corrosive substances such as acid and alkali.

2. Lifting belt

The storage temperature of the hoisting belt is between -20°C and 100°C. It should be stored in a special rack for the hoisting belt. It should be placed in a ventilated and dry environment with no open flames or heat sources around it. After cleaning, the lifting belt should be dried first and then stored.

The chain rigging should be stored in clean, dry, well-ventilated conditions, the temperature is required to be room temperature, and placed on a shelf, away from heat sources, a gas that can corrode the exterior, and various chemicals.
