Cranes and hoists have made complicated lifting tasks easier and simpler. Not only this, there has now come a wide range of options in cranes and hoists, which allows one to make the perfect purchase.
Sometimes, because of a little ignorance or carelessness damage can occur in the crane which then brings down its performance. Hence, it is extremely important to check these options from time to time to ensure that the crane is in good working condition.
Today, we will have a look at some of the most common issues that occur with crane end carriages. This will help you identify the cause of damage at your warehouse as well. So, let us have a look at some of these common issues and understand how these can be taken care of:
Change in Diameter of Crane Wheels:
This might seem a little unrealistic but is something that in fact results in bad performance of the crane. You might not receive a crane with wheels of different diameters but it might so happen that over the period of time the diameter of one wheel might become different from the diameter of the other.
This is because of the track on which the crane is being run. It might be the case that one wheel is facing faster wear and tear than the other. This might not cause a big difference earlier but gradually it will make the diameters of the two wheels distinguishably different.
This is one of the common reasons for damages in crane end truck. Hence, it is very important to look after the same.
Bending of End Truck:
This might happen due to collision between the end truck and the crane. Hence, care must be taken to avoid these collisions and safely operate the crane. This might also occur because of improper installation of crane parts.
Inconsistency in RPMS:
If the installation of crane parts and motors is not proper then it might result in different RPMs for different parts of the crane. This will not only bring down the performance of the crane but will also result in early wear and tear.
For a crane to work effectively and efficiently it is important that the load is evenly distributed on both the sides of the crane. This is why the proper installation of the crane end truck is a must.
So, always ask your manufacturer about the same and ensure that installation is proper and in synchronization.
Hence, look out for these common problems that might occur with crane and make sure that these do not happen in your industry. Work efficiently and effectively with the crane. If you have further queries or concerns in this reference please feel free to connect with us anytime.
