- Don't assume just because
your crane picks a load it is designed to do so.
- Your systems should be
marked for capacity. If not, an engineering study should be performed to confirm
- We can do an in-house study
if the manufacturer drawings are available or we can go to your site and take
the necessary information.
detailed engineering studies provide facility and production managers with valuable
information regarding the safety aspects of existing crane, hoist and monorail
systems. The benefit of these studies is to reduce potential injuries to plant
personnel and possible damage to the physical plant as well. The scope of these
studies typically encompass the following:
- Complete plant/facility
studies of existing and possibly outdated hoist, crane and monorail systems.
- Many existing systems have
been designed and installed by maintenance personnel "playing engineer".
Many of these systems are structurally unsound and are accidents waiting to happen
with you as the sole owner of liability.
- Questionable or unmarked
systems should all be checked for capacity to insure compliance with all applicable
ANSI, OSHA, CMAA, and AISC specifications.
- Burlington Engineering
Crane and Hoist
offers the solution to these problems.
