The operation of the cranes requires a skilled operator because the task involves the lifting and movement of heavy loads. Cranes also require periodic service of their parts, ABCO Engineers offers the best crane services in Bangalore. The overhead cranes require maintenance regularly so that the lifespan of the machine can be increased and it can operate at its best efficiency. Since the initial investment in the crane installation is high, it should be protected with regular maintenance. While operating cranes face various problems that may lead to accidents that will take human lives or damage the property making very high bearable costs.
Through our experience in crane services in Bangalore and other cities, we have discovered some common problems in overhead crane operation. It is necessary for the owner to be aware of that and take necessary steps before any accident happens.
Damaging and degradation of wire ropes:
The damaging and degradation of wire rope is a common problem encountered in the operation of the overhead crane. The entire tension of the heavyweight is born by the wire rope. The reasons for degradation include continuous usage, lifting weights more than the rated for the wire rope, worn-out wires within the rope wire, and corrosion at the end of the connection. It is important to inspect every part of the wire before the operation to avoid any accidents, lubricate the wires regularly, if any fault is detected replace the rope wire. Always use good quality wire ropes specified by the manufacturer.

Excessive wears of wheels:
The end truck wheels are used daily during the operation of the crane, and every time it requires frequent maintenance and adjustment. The wheels naturally wear down and should be replaced at the right time..
Electrical network problem:
Amid the operation, some cranes experience failure due to internal electrical network problems which cause an interruption and delay in the work. Sometimes the radio signals are also lost that are used for communication. If this happens to you call the technicians from the reputed service providers company like ABCO Engineers.
Damage of hooks:
The damage of hooks takes place due to its continuous usage. Hooks are designed for lifting rated load capacity, if a load above the rated load is lifted the lift may get bent or damaged.
If you are noticing the uneven movement of the crane or creeping sounds from the track then it is due to the uneven runway and it requires immediate attention or else it will damage the lower parts of the crane.
Fault in power circuits:
The cranes operate on high electric power and the blow-off of small circuit components like fuses and switches are common, so make sure you have all small circuit components at your place ready all the time. If there is any fault in them it can be replaced immediately or else it will lead to unnecessary time delay.
Other Electrical dangers:
The electrical wirings of the crane should be inspected regularly and should be ensured that there is no fault on the wire connection. Any fault in the wiring may lead to the heavy leakage current risking the life of the operator and other workers.
The installation of the crane requires a high initial investment if the proper and periodic maintenance is not done, it will again force you to spend more on the replacement of parts along with delaying in the work.
