Crane testing is very important and must be done before the crane can be put into use. The image below shows an overhead travelling crane being tested. Following installation it is a legal requirement to test and certify your overhead travelling crane before use.
The test process is to take a deflection measurement from the ground to the crane bridge. Then a second deflection measurement underload, the difference cannot be more than the allowable deflection rate. The final deflection measurement is taken to determine that the crane bridge has returned to it’s original position.
We also offer crane training for overhead cranes.
