Product Details Supplier Info More products

Straightpoint is now offering radio-frequency identification (RFID) tagging within its load monitoring products, allowing inspection records to be wirelessly transferred from the product onto a secure database on the company’s computer.

The process check stores the Quic-Check ID number, the product type, the in-service date, the date of last recorded inspection and the status of the product at the last recorded inspection, making records more accurate and saving time compared with completing manual records.

Clients buying the enhanced loadcell products can use the Crosby handheld device and free software program to transfer the data from the product quickly, safely and accurately onto their computer systems, providing users with a quick reference to inspection information on the specific product being inspected.

Further benefits

  • According to David Ayling, Straightpoint’s director, the RFID tag system reduces the total inspection process time by up to 65 per cent and eliminates errors from handwritten or manual typed inspection reports.
  • The RFID system is designed to enable companies to quickly reference all records and can be used in conjunction with other Crosby RFID-tagged products that companies might be using, such as slings or shackles, making the process more efficient and cost-effective.
