  • Full lubrication of all required components.

  • Inspecion of bolted and welded connections on crane components.

  • Minor adjustments to both electrical and mechanical components, including but not limited to: limit switches, control systems, brakes and trolley flange.

  • Operational tests through full range of functions.

  • 24/7 Customer Service Hotline

  • Detailed inspection report along with summary of issues to be addressed.

  • Written recommendations for repairs, spare parts inventory and additional maintenance requirements

BENEFITS

Regular inspections will:

  • Prevent accidents and maintain safe operation of your crane.

  • Avoid unnecessary interruptions in production.

  • Ensure peak efficiency throughout your crane’s long life.

  • Address potential problems before they become more costly or inconvenient.

  • Reduce overhead costs associated with parts, lubricants and tools.

  • Reduce downtime by scheduling when production will not be interrupted.

EXTRAS

We also provide an engineered stamped inspection upon request which includes the following:

  • Inspection of structural steel support columns, crane corbels and haunches, runways.

  • As build drawings with Engineering Stamp if required.

  • Weight loading calculations and confirmations.

  • Detailed stamped Engineer inspection report along with summary of issues to be addressed.

LOAD TESTING

  • Overhead cranes are tested at 125% of it's rated safe working load capacity. (ex. if rated for 5 tons, a load of 6.25 tons will be applied). 

  • While under the additional burden of weight, the bridge and runways will then be measured, using the proper equipment, to see if the amount of deflection in the steel falls within the safe parameters laid out by the original engineered design.

  •  The crane will also be tested to see that all functions are working correctly.  A complete check of hoisting, lowering, trolley travel, bridge travel, limit switches as well as locking and safety devices will be completed under the extra stress.

  •  This also allows the technician to determine and verify any load limit switches to proper and safe settings.
