Hi Friend,


Load Weight Estimation & Area of a Circle [Workshop]

This workshop uses the Journeyman Rigger's Reference Card panel 6, to help provide the solution.

The area of a circle can be calculated with either (Pi x radius squared) or (dia. x dia. x .80), and both arrive at very similar values for Area of a Circle. For riggers in the field, we use the dxdx. 80 method since it is faster and simpler.

If circumference is desired, a person can use Pi x diameter, officially 3.1416 x d, or for quick figuring in the field, 3.2 x diameter.


Read on for the full workshop.

View From the Cab [Demo]

Last week, Industrial Training International (iti.com) announced the development of a virtual reality (VR) mobile crane simulator product which is to be formally unveiled at CONEXPO (www.conexpoconagg.com) in March 2017.

The best way to really understand the ITI VR experience is to try it, which will be possible at the upcoming SC&RA Crane & Rigging Workshop, September 20-23, in National Harbor, Maryland.

Unfortunately, not everyone will be able to make it to SC&RA, and March 2017 is still over six months away, but fear not! There is still a way to get a piece of the ITI VR experience. Click here to get a "view from the cab."


You can make a reservation for your ITI VR unit today
