Garos has partnerships with world leaders in the handling and lifting market. Market players have trusted Garos for more than three decades to measure and analyse the load forces on their lifting systems.
Reliability & Technical Expertise
All types of sensors (load pins, extensometers, tension load cells, etc.). Garos delivers reliable, easy-to-integrate and robust solutions meeting the requirements of the materials handling market.
A comprehensive offer: standard or customised
Standard or customised, with or without electronics, wired or wireless, Garos sensors meet both the standard requirements and the specific demands of lifting system manufacturers.
Our customers in the material handling and lifting sector use our products and services for the following applications:
Installed on the rear axle of telescopic handlers, Garos extensometers measure deformation to prevent tilting from the front.
Elevating work platforms
Garos-manufactured compression cells are installed on elevating platforms to ensure operator safety by measuring the basket's bearing load.
Garos-designed load pins are integrated into bridge cranes to measure and control the lifted load. The sensors then provide a safety function.
Garos-designed load pins are incorporated into port crane systems to measure and control the lifted load.
Civil engineering machinery
The Garos ignition interlock and anti-theft code or coded key systems are designed to ensure safe construction equipment start-up.
for handling and lifting
Our products and services
Garos-designed extensometers measure micro-deformations on lifting systems and thus provide load-limiting and anti-tilt functions.
Load pins are key components in the safety of material handling systems as they measure and control the maximum load.
Garos-designed compression cells measure the slightest load of lifting systems to prevent them from tilting or breaking.
