Updated progress on rebuild of 15 ton Box girder crane
Excel Industries Inc. Was contracted by a customer that had been having extreme wheel wear problems. After doing a runway rail survey and checking the crane for square, Excel was able to determine the problem.
After checking the crane, Excel found that the end trucks had been bent from previous use. The bent end trucks had caused the crane to skew while running down the length of the building and causing the extensive wheel wear.
Excel was able to formulate a game plan that would cost a third of the price for a new crane. This was to take the crane down and install new end trucks and re-square the crane. Pictures are of the process half way through the project. We still have to terminate all the wire connections and repaint the crane. Repainting the crane is something we always do for the finishing touches of a repair like this for our customers.
Work in the shop on rebuilding the crane is completed and the crane has been installed in customers facility.
