Safety First

MSI overhead weighing solutions meet or exceed safety guidelines set by OSHA, ANSI, ASME and regional regulatory bodies. Safe load monitoring is crucial to any operation with overhead equipment. MSI overhead weighing systems provide real-time load monitoring to prevent crane overload accidents.

Overhead Weighing Products

Rice Lake offers a range of MSI Overhead Weighing products including crane scales, integrated solutions, dynamometers, instrumentation and wireless network capabilities to increase worksite safety. MSI overhead weighing products can be customized to meet the specific needs of your application.

Crane Scales

MSI crane scales are available for light to heavy capacity application needs with integrated displays and wireless network communication capabilities. From indoor work centers to metal foundries and port cargo handling, MSI crane scales are available in intrinsically safe and stainless steel models to fit any industry.



Also known as tension link dynamometers, these weighing solutions can be used to measure either vertical or horizontal tension. Dynamometers are rugged but lightweight, making them ideal for measuring tension in rigging, load tests, crane and elevator certification, and other straight-line lifting applications.


Integrated Solutions

Overhead weighing integrated solutions include products like a shear web load cell, a clevis load pin and a clamp-on load cell. Load pin sensors are designed to replace clevis pins in pulleys, and both load pins and shear web load cells are designed to be permanently installed. Integrated solutions are ideal safety features in overhead equipment because they provide constant load monitoring to prevent overloads.
