Condition Monitoring for Cranes Beyond OSHA Requirements
Overhead cranes are a critical piece of equipment and a common source of downtime for many global industries due to limited access for inspections and the high cost of repair.

As with any industrial equipment that is crucial to providing service within a process, unscheduled downtime can be very costly. A preventive maintenance program focused on crane maintenance services and inspections which meet current OSHA requirements can be useful in determining whether or not a crane is capable of performing its task of safely and reliably lifting its cargo.
Problems arise when you introduce safety concerns around accessing drive components during normal operation, significant speed variations with limited steady state operation durations, various loading scenarios with forward and reversing rotational directions, multiple transient vibration sources, etc. You’re going to need more options for crane inspections to achieve optimal productivity.
