LOADMAX is the quick, easy way to plan optimum load- ing for any type of ship. It rapidly calculates and displays accurate draft, hull strength and stability data for any load- ing condition.

LOADMAX is as simple to use as a desk calculator— tonnage distribution and calculated results are read at a glance — no confusing knobs, thumbwheels or cluttered

CRT displays typical of other loading instruments.

Designed for the particular operating requirements of your ship, LOADMAX combines numeric tonnage displays with an easily understood mimic diagram of the vessel. A separate graphic display shows whether the ship is in hogging or sagging condition and if shear force or bending moment limits are being exceeded.
