Overhead crane needs to be maintained on a regular basis so that, its life can be extended and for efficient functioning. Crane accidents are hazardous. The complications in cranes can even cause accidental deaths, this is the reason why crane needs to be operated correctly and cautiously. Below given are the 7 issues you might face while operating EOT cranes and how to avoid it.
WIRE ROPE GETTING DAMAGED & DEGRADED
Particularly a general issue faced while working on the overhead crane is that occasionally wire rope gets impaired and breaks down, Wire rope occasionally sticks out of the reviewing system, broken wires, or whittled outside wires. The effect of the environment and lack of proper maintenance can also cause cables to break. If you see any eroded part or unwinding of strands visible on the wire, stop using the wire immediately to avoid accidents.
ABCO Engineering, the most sought-after Crane suppliers in Bangalore considers this serious issue of damaged wire should be immediately attended, as it can cause unforeseen circumstances anytime. Therefore, we recommend several steps through which it can be averted from getting damage and those steps are:
Therefore, we recommend several steps through which it can be averted from getting damage and those steps are:
1. Examine the rope before beginning to work with the overhead crane and if in case there is any damage take necessary action.
2. Ensure the wire rope should be properly lubricated.
3. Check the diameter of the wire rope at regular intervals. Any elongation or decrease in the diameter of the wire rope, we need to replace the wire rope immediately.
ALIGNMENT AND CRANE SKEW ISSUES
If the overhead crane is misaligned and skewing then it can threaten the entire crane system. To avoid this misalignment and crane skew issue crane, it must be regularly examined and repaired by the service provider.
Below are few pointers for proper maintenance,
1. Make sure the fit bolts at the connecting plate of end trucks and the bridge are tightened and required torque is applied. This has to be checked regularly during preventive maintenance.
2. Make sure that the Cantry Girder/the Runway Beam is properly arrested with the building columns. Improper arresting of the same will lead to skewing of crane and derailment.
3. Make sure both the LT Brakes are working in sync. If any one of the brake does not work in sync, the skewing in the crane can be seen.

END TRUCK WHEEL CAUSING EXCESSIVE WEAR
The odd raking noise and the movement of wheels are abnormal; there is some issue with the tracks. This issue is very common and requires immediate attention because it can cause damage of several significant parts of the crane, like truck wheels and others.

Another major challenge faced by the overhead crane operator is the interruption in DSL Bus bar and collector connection that can cause a control problem. To solve this problem operator must immediately contact crane service provider who carefully traces the fault and fixes it. When the crane isn’t operated correctly it can be life-threatening for the person operating it. The huge machine requires a substantial quantity of electricity to get on the work. In fact, you should be attentive to the power circuits as there are frequent cases of blowing down of fuses. Thus, contact ABCO engineering, the best known Industrial crane manufacturers in Bangalore. We are the right place where you can approach us in case you face such an issue.
HOOKS GETTING BENT OR DAMAGED
There is a specific load capacity of the hook and if it crosses the limited capacity, then hook may begin to bend that can instantly cause it to break which in turn poses some serious danger if the heavy load falls upon someone. A persistent check is compulsorily required before proceeding with the work.
