Catastrophic underhung overhead bridge crane runway fail, broken runway hanging loose from ceiling mount at metal finishing plant in central Indiana

CraneWerks Rescues Metal Finishing Plant with New Workstation

A metal finishing plant in central Indiana was the scene of a catastrophic runway failure. When our emergency service technicians arrived, the bridge and spreader bar was hanging precariously over caustic dipping vats. One of the runways had broken loose and fallen. Caustic environments tend to increase the chances of equipment failure. A Runway survey, as part of a regular preventive inspection, could have possibly prevented this failure.
