Variable Frequency Drives: Smart Motor Controls for Overhead Cranes

VFDs can be used to control every motorized motion on an overhead crane—including the hoist, bridge, trolley, and even hook rotation.

0 5406

Do you battle with an older overhead crane system to keep it up and running? If your crane seems to break down or needs frequent repair due to worn-out parts, you may be able to extend its service life with a smarter and more efficient drive control system.

Overhead Crane Electrification: NEC 610.61 Grounding Requirements

Many business owners may not realize that their older 3-bar electrification systems are outdated, or they mistakenly think they’re in compliance because of a “Grandfather Clause.”

0 7758

At Mazzella Companies, our Service Technicians and Engineers commonly come across overhead cranes that are operational, but not in compliance with industry electrical and grounding requirements. There’s still a lot of confusion as to whether an overhead crane using 3-bar conductors, that was designed and installed prior to 2005, is in compliance with the revised NEC standards.

Energy Chain: Powering Overhead Cranes in the Harshest Environments

Designed for overhead cranes in demanding or high-usage environments, energy chain is a type of electrification system that's growing in popularity.

0 3008

If you’re battling frequent inspections, adjustments, and repairs to your crane’s festoon electrification system, then we’d like to introduce you to energy chain—a type of overhead crane electrification system that can handle the toughest operating conditions.

What is Wire Rope? Understanding the Specifications and Construction

Wire rope is a complex piece of mechanical machinery with a number of different specifications and properties that can affect its performance and service life.

What is Arch Beam and Why is it So Dangerous on an Overhead Crane?

Arch beam and window track were once a reliable and innovative solution in the material handling industry. 50+ years later, these systems have reached and exceeded their effective service life.

0 4124

During the 1960’s, crane beam manufacturers ceased production of arch beam/window track for their runway and bridge beams. Unfortunately, these types of track systems are still prevalent in older manufacturing facilities today and could pose a real danger to employees working nearby.

Overhead Crane Safety Systems: Modern Features and Technologies

With modern technologies becoming more readily available and more affordable, the safety features available for overhead crane systems have never been better.

0 6761

Is it time for you to modernize and improve the safety of your overhead crane system? Learn how advanced technologies like collision avoidance, variable frequency drives, overload sensors, and remote diagnostics can help to improve the safety, performance, and reliability of your overhead crane equipment.

How to Make Your Personal Fall Protection Equipment OSHA Compliant

The cost of keeping your fall protection gear in compliance shouldn't be considered an expense, but should be looked at as an investment that helps keeps your employees safe.

0 5821

OSHA standards specify that employers need to provide fall protection training for their workers, but also have to have an inspection program in place to regularly inspect and assess the condition of their harnesses, lanyards, and retractable devices.

How to Measure Span and Runway Length for an Overhead Bridge Crane

Understanding how a new crane will fit into your existing facility, and how the structural and design factors of an existing runway and supports can be utilized.

0 9178

The better you understand the design and specification requirements for your own crane system, the better equipped you’ll be to compare the different quotes you receive against the project criteria.

Upgrading Your Overhead Crane's Capacity: What You Need to Know

Partner with a reputable and experienced crane service provider to determine if an upgrade to the capacity of your overhead crane equipment is feasible, and put an action plan together.

0 3990

If you think your crane is currently exceeding its capacity and service classification, or you know your production needs will be changing in the future, contact a reputable crane service provider to schedule a consultation and see if your crane is a possible candidate for a capacity upgrade.

Installing an Overhead Crane in an Existing Building Structure

A reputable and experienced overhead crane manufacturer can work with you to design and install an overhead crane that meets your lifting requirements and fits in your existing building structure.

0 5964
