Rockford, IL – The Caldwell Group Inc. has bolstered its line of lifting solutions with the unveiling of the new Max and Supermax ACP-Turnado models, expanding the renowned RUD ACP-Turnado series. These latest additions are meticulously engineered to handle larger loads, boasting weight load limits (WLL) up to 30% higher than comparable lifting points in the market.

A lifting point serves as a crucial link between lifting gear and loads during various phases of operation, including lifting, rotation, and overall movement or transport. Such points encompass a range of components like ring lifting lugs, eyebolts, and flanges, to which a sling is attached. Notably, the ACP-Turnado series derives its name from the automatic center point (ACP) feature. This innovative mechanism ensures that the lift shackle swiftly aligns itself with the load direction upon lifting, effectively eliminating the possibility of remaining in an incorrect position. This crucial feature mitigates risks associated with dangerous transverse loads and sudden drops of the load, courtesy of its unique spring mechanism.

According to company sources, the inherent intelligence of the ‘smart’ centric lifting point ensures automatic adjustment to the correct load direction during lifting operations. Consequently, the lift bail cannot remain stationary, significantly reducing the likelihood of a sudden drop of the load. At the heart of the ACP-Turnado’s functionality lies its innovative spring mechanism, endowing it with unparalleled intelligence and earning it the distinction of being a ‘smart’ lifting point.

Furthermore, all ACP-Turnado lifting points are equipped with a universal bolt head featuring internal and external hexagons, facilitating optimal handling. The captive bolt design ensures security, while its replaceable nature adds versatility, making it suitable for a wide range of applications.
