A structural composite manufacturer recently installed Crane Sentry® Side Pull detectors on seven wire rope hoists to reduce unscheduled wire rope changes due to side load damage.
Laser-View Technologies supplied special mounts to VM Hoist for their customer’s Detroit Hoist low profile hoists. The system also includes our unique Adaptive Hoist Sensing™ technology that permits side loading in permissible regions so that operation is not hampered.
Prior to installation, some cranes needed wire rope repairs after two weeks. The Side Pull systems have been in service for over eight weeks without the need for unscheduled wire rope maintenance due to side pulling.
