What’s a Crane System, and How Does It Work?
Sometimes people use the terms “hoist” and “crane” interchangeably, but they’re technically not the same thing. Both hoists and cranes can lift and move heavy loads, but there are some key differences in terms of design and functionality. Whereas a hoist can move heavy things up and down, a crane can do more than just lift; cranes can be designed to move in two or even three dimensions. An overhead crane, for example, is typically suspended from a beam or mobile boom; other types of overhead cranes are designed to move along a fixed rail. The hoist does the heavy lifting, while the crane has the ability to move the hoist around to wherever it’s needed.
The specific type of crane you have will determine what its mounted hoist is able to do for you. In industrial settings, some of the most popular overhead crane applications include the top running crane, the under running crane, the gantry crane, and the monorail crane. The hoists on these cranes can also be powered by a number of sources, including electric, pneumatic, and manual.
What Can Lead to Crane System Failures?
A crane is essentially a combination of simple machines which are combined to create a mechanical advantage for moving loads, a crane is also a connected system of many moving parts. Because this is true, there are also several common areas where problems can occur. Here are some of the issues we typically see with cranes and crane motors we repair at AES:
One of the most common issues with cranes is damage to the wire rope or cabling. These metal wires can be overloaded or become fatigued, corroded, crimped, or deteriorated over time, especially in extreme environments. The same is true for crane hooks and other hardware, as well.
Other worn components
Some crane components require regular maintenance. If this is ignored, then excessive wear can occur, even resulting in a crane failure. Special attention should be paid to gearboxes, brakes, bearings, and hoist mechanisms, including regular lubrication. If you hear any unusual noises, see any wheels or moving parts which don’t seem to be engaging properly, or notice your crane motor to be struggling, straining, or seeming to have to work harder than it should, stop operations immediately and give the AES team a call at (866) 386-1001.
Electric motor or electrical fault issues
One of the most common electrical system issues is having contacts which become “stuck” or welded. When this happens, it’s hard to get your motor to start – or stop. Electric components can also fail as a result of contaminant infiltration, corrosion, or overheating. And sometimes, your crane motor itself can just get to the point – even through normal use – where it simply needs to be rewound in order to continue functioning properly. At AES, our team is an expert at rewinding all sorts of electric motors, servos, and drives, including crane motors.
