The Ken Forging catalogue provides useful information on eyebolts, including tips for installation, inspection and safety precautions. In addition, the catalogue provides charts with rated capacity information for eyebolts. These details help customers find the ideal fasteners for their application.
More than a catalogue
One helpful section of the catalogue identifies where to find the traceability markings on Ken Forging eyebolts, and what each marking signifies. These markings are made on all Ken Forging eyebolts for quality assurance purposes, as the company offers 100 per cent traceability and lot control. According to Ken Forging, it invests in these quality programs to offer customers superior quality products.
“We have set a standard for ourselves, with our customers in mind, with which we provide the best product available in a timely manner that is second to none. We attain these standards by implementing and sustaining effective quality programs.”
Another useful section of the catalogue offers reference dimensions and rated capacities for machinery eyebolts. In addition, Ken Forging lists some guidelines for working with these ratings. For example, the guidelines say to achieve the rated capacity of eyebolts, the minimum threaded shank length must be one thread diameter. Another guideline emphasizes that despite the 5:1 safety factor of these eyebolts, the rated capacity should not be exceeded.
The catalogue also includes safety precautions. Some examples include: do not force hooks or fittings into the eye; do not shock load eyebolts; and avoid angular lifts when possible. Since angular lifting can significantly reduce the rated capacity of eyebolts, Ken Forging also provides a chart that compares the rated capacities for vertical and angular lifting with shoulder eyebolts.
Of course, besides the reference information, the catalogue also provides a complete listing of Ken Forging products. That includes a wide range of industrial hardware in many sizes, designs, materials and finishes. In addition, Ken Forging can offer custom manufacturing services for forgings up to a maximum of 250 lbs.
