Eberhard Funk introduced RUD-Ketten’s latest invention at P.I.E. 2017. After receiving reports from the automotive industry of issues with chains scratching sensitive surfaces, RUD-Ketten’s design department created webbing sling that can be attached to the lifting point with no risk of scratching on Class A surfaces. The new product comes in many different sizes. An underwater operation hook was also discussed by Funk, that can be used in a one-hand operation. According to Funk, it’s a great product for the oil and gas industries.
