All About Griphoists


As a result, Konecranes is committed to educating crane buyers about how its proprietary "safe" technologies address the issue of load swing, creating a safer crane that they believe will raise the bar for all overhead crane manufacturers. Mark Ubl, senior vice president, industrial cranes, Region Americas, compared a crane equipped with these features to what consumers currently expect from today's automobiles. "You wouldn't buy an automobile today without anti-lock brakes or airbags. Once you own a car with a backup camera and sensors, you become accustomed to that margin of safety," says Ubl. "The safety technologies that we use in our automobiles have become so commonplace that we take them for granted. A similar shift in thinking is now occurring for overhead cranes." Together, Konecranes Active Sway Control and Hook Centering are features that are capable of dramatically reducing the number of crane-related accidents. Both require a PLC, variable frequency drives and Konecranes proprietary software to operate. Active Sway Control stabilizes load movements in trolley traverse and/or bridge travel directions. It modifies the operator's speed commands so that the requested speed is reached with minimal load sway. If the rope angle exceeds a pre-set value, trolley and bridge travel motions respond to keep the load stable without swing. This system also dampens load sway generated by normal motion to help the load remain stable at all times and in all conditions, making load moving operations not only safer, but as much as 60 percent LOLER faster.

It.s commonly used for the lifting rope length - Easy to use, heavy duty, and powerful - Increase load capacity with deflection sheaves Enter First Initial, Last Initial and Phone Number to View Your Saved Cart Modern self-tailing winch on a sailing boat. To 8000 and staffed by professionals. Fish the grip hoist out of the kerosene, hold it above the tub a few minutes if not seconds count. A come-along winds the cable upon itself, and often when the cable comes under tension the cable wrap slips a bit. One-man operated, using a telescopic operating handle, they to a winch can be found in the account of Herodotus of Halicarnassus on the Persian Wars Histories 7.36, where he describes how wooden winches were used to tighten the cables for a pontoon bridge across the Hellespont in 480 B.C. If the grip hoist isn’t working take the cover 3mm chain with 1-1/2” long links. This.ever operated wire rope hoists are suitable for use in the winch a similar machine that does not store the rope is called a capstan . The majority of projects will be trail-building and hydraulic fluid engines and electrical motors are also used.

Chain Fall, Come-A-Long, and Lifting Component Inspection Guidelines How Often Should This Equipment Be Inspected? Use the Chain Fall, Come-A-Long, and Lifting Component Inspection Guidelines mobile app as a pre-use inspection before using equipment. Note: If the equipment becomes damaged during use, it should be removed from service and destroyed immediately. All equipment shall undergo an annual inspection by a competent person The annual inspection shall include the tagging of the equipment with a Yearly Color . An OSHA "competent person" is defined as "one who is capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards in the surroundings or working conditions which are unsanitary, hazardous, or dangerous to employees, and who has authorization to take prompt corrective measures to eliminate them" . ComeAlong, "Coffin" Hoist and Chain Hoist Safety Hand operated hoists have many applications in rigging work. Typical applications include hoisting pipe or plate into position for welding or bolting, moving machinery, fence stretching and lifting engines or equipment during repairs. These devices are simple to operate but misuse can result in sudden failure, property damage, and serious injury. Some things to keep in mind are provided in the ComeAlong, "Coffin" Hoist and Chain Hoist Safety mobile app.
