“Digitalisation in the Lifting Industry is a great challenge, but now a reality on many job sites. Pre-use checks are vital to pick up faults due to day-to-day wear and tear and malfunction of safety-related equipment. The operator of the equipment should act as the first line of defence in identifying any faults or damage. Such checks should be carried out before the lifting equipment is used during each working day or at the beginning of each shift. Failure to carry out a pre-use check can lead to accidents, injury and fatalities,” the company said in a statement.

In addition to the YOKE Digital Product Line, other manufacturers can add their own manufactured item, such as Chain Blocks, Lever Hoists, Beam Clamps, Lifting Beams, and develop their own Digital Product Line using any industry standard Digital Chips, including YOKE SupraTag, YOKE SupraNano or other Digital Chips.

Together with the YOKE Digital Product Line, the lifting equipment industry can work together to complete one whole global Digital Product Line, solving the longstanding problem of access to documentation and pre-use inspection knowledge for users.
