Overhead cranes are the workhorse of any manufacturing or distribution facility. They are there to do the heavy lifting and keep the production floors safe and uncluttered. Often taken for granted, they aren’t appreciated till they start having issues. Heavy lifting and repetition create wear and tear on joints and other mechanical parts. Throw in multiple shifts, grime, and caustic operating conditions and they begin to show their age.
This was the second crane brought to CraneWerks from this steel production plant for rehabbing. The first crane had issues with end trucks, as the original manufacturer’s end trucks were beyond use. The appropriate parts were replaced and the crane was put back into service. Being proactive, the customer had CraneWerks rehab their second crane once the first was back in service.
CraneWerks made modifications to the existing structure of the crane, inspected the integrity of all working parts, checked wiring and seals, replaced worn/outdated parts, and made a few upgrades. Some of the repairs and modifications included:
The customer now has two fully functioning 20-ton cranes at its disposal. End tuck safety concerns have been addressed and all mechanical and electrical parts have been inspected, repaired or replaced. Moving parts aren’t always easy to detect wear and tear. A trained professional can inspect and help breathe life back into your crane system. Early detection can help prevent uneccesary down times and eliminate potential accidents.
The professionals at CraneWerks are here to help you get the most out of your crane system. Let’s talk!
