Why replace your crane

Overhead Cranes are important machinery and equipment necessary for modern industry to realize the mechanization and automation of production processes, improve material handling conditions, and increase labor productivity. It plays an important role in developing the national economy and improving the needs of people's material and cultural lives.

Stable and reliable cranes are vital to your production. Only under the condition that the crane must be sufficiently stable and safe to operate can the production work be carried out in an orderly manner and the safety of the workers can be guaranteed. However, due to the long working hours of the crane, improper operation or wear of the crane, the crane is unstable, the parts are damaged, the rated lifting weight is reduced, and the production efficiency is reduced. In order to ensure the normal and orderly production, the best choice is to replace the crane. This article mainly introduces several reasons for replacing the crane.

1. Safety

Before operating the crane, workers should receive professional training and adopt correct operation methods to prevent accidents caused by operating errors. Don't neglect the safety of workers. The lifting object is relatively heavy and is not within the range of the human body. If an accident occurs, it will threaten the lives of workers. If a problem occurs, the crane should stop working and check the problem until the problem is resolved. If a fault often occurs in a certain place, you need to find a professional electrical engineer to inspect, repair and solve it.

2. Repeated maintenance

Occasional repairs do not mean that it is time to scrap your crane. However, if repairs have become a regular habit, or each repair seems to cause more problems, then it may be time to replace the crane or replace critical parts. Frequent maintenance of the crane will damage the original stability of the crane, leading to unstable operation, slower running speed, lower lifting weight, louder operation, slower work efficiency, etc.

3. Reduce productivity

View crane performance data. Will its speed or load capacity decrease over time? When the speed or load capacity of the crane is reduced, it means that the work efficiency is reduced, and the time cost and production cost will increase. If a new crane is replaced, the efficiency of the crane will be faster, the time will be shortened, and the total cost will be lower than before.

4. Out of warranty period

When buying a crane, the seller will provide a limited warranty period. If the warranty period for a part or system has expired, you will need to bear the full cost of repairs when you replace a part. Some companies with poor after-sales services do not deal with your after-sales in a timely manner or ignore you. This will cause you a lot of trouble. Many parts also have a replacement schedule recommended by the manufacturer. Replace the spare parts regularly according to the manufacturer's recommendations to extend the life of the crane.

5.Insufficient capacity

Older cranes have limited load-bearing capacity and cannot meet the status quo. In recent years, with the development and reform of crane technology, the crane's lifting weight has become larger and larger, and its own weight is also lighter than previous cranes with the same lifting weight. The overall performance of the crane is better than before.
