ASME B30.20 requires you to inspect your plate clamps. A faulty clamp could cause a lot of damage, injury, or even death.
We’re back at Caldwell Lifting Solutions Headquarters in Rockford, Illinoise to find out what rejection criteria we need to look for when inspecting a plate clamp. Caldwell Engineering manager Dale Kelly shows us how to perform the inspection.
