Chain Sling Education

February 25, 2016

Laclede Chain’s next customer sling class is slated for Monday, April 14th, 2014.

Not sure what a “DOG” chain sling means?  Hint -It’s not a furry friend on four legs with a chain leash.  A “DOG” is a Double chain sling with an Oblong master link on one end and Grab hooks on the other ends.  The attendees at our sling class will learn chain sling terminology such as “DOG.”

Other helpful topics at the sling class include:

  • Process for manufacturing G80 & G100 Alloy chain
  • Quality procedures for manufacturing
  • Plant tour
  • Sling Assembly
  • Attachments
  • Q/A
  • Written open book test
  • Hands on Sling Inspection
  • Review

The logistics! Attendees will need to arrive on Sunday, April 13th (preferably between 2pm and 4 pm) for transportation to our factory in Maryville, MO. The factory is a quick 90 minute drive from the Kansas City airport. If you will be driving in, please plan to arrive at our factory at 7:45am Monday morning. Our class will wrap up around 2:30 pm on Monday, therefore flight arrangements after 5pm are strongly recommended.

Laclede provides the lodging and meals.
