Down With the Old Up With the New
Updated: Dec 1, 2020
Remove two old 10 Ton Top running double girder cranes and replace them with two new 10 ton top running single girder cranes.
The New single girder cranes needed to have the same amount of lift as the old double girder cranes
New cranes could not have any painted surfaces that could chip or flake (Note: clean room environment)
Precise hook spotting required for accurate hood positioning
Our Team Approach:
Our team, armed with existing building dimensions, designed a stooled up single girder crane with a close headroom hoist to meet the lift requirements.
The hook and lower block of the hoist were disassembled, sand blasted, and reassembled. The running surfaces on the bridge beam were kept bare metal.
A four light state of the art hook positioning system was installed on the hoist to indicate the exact lifting point
Result: The old cranes were removed and the new cranes installed with little to no interference to the customer production time.
