Laser-View Technologies’ President, Steven Lubeck, recently presented “Minimizing Downtime on Wire Rope Hoists via Proper Vertical Lifting” at AISTech 2023. He discussed techniques to prevent hazardous conditions and consequences caused by wire rope hoist side loading. He also spoke about a range of strategies that can effectively limit side loading without compromising productivity and how companies can mitigate safety risks in the process.
By investing in systems that detect improper vertical lifting, companies can experience the following benefits:
- Greater system reliability and fewer accidents
- Reduced downtime and increased productivity
- A decreased probability of damage to crane and production equipment
- Improved working conditions for staff and operators and less safety concerns
One such system is the Crane Sentry® Hoist Side Pull. Manufactured by Laser-View Technologies, this system can detect excessive side pull on a wire rope hoist and alert operators of unsafe lifting conditions.
