Morris Material Handling, Inc. Offers Inspection Services for All Brands of Overhead Cranes and Hoists



OAKCREEK, WI (August 08, 2008)-Morris Material Handling, Inc., the original equipment manufacturer of P&H® cranes, hoists, and replacement parts, introduces inspection services for all brands of overhead cranes and hoists. Highly-trained and certified technicians analyze hundreds of crane components and deliver a simple, easy-to-read report (enhanced by proprietary ProCare® crane inspection software) of all deficiencies. Technicians are equipped with a Panasonic ToughBook, unique to inspections of material handling equipment. Use of the Panasonic Toughbook on-site expedites the complete report and repair proposal-typically available within three to five days. Morris Material Handling crane and hoist inspections assist with safety and reliability, help ensure regulatory compliance, and lower the total cost of crane ownership.

Safety and Reliability

Periodic crane and hoist inspections help to improve safety and reliability. Technicians are certified and required to pass a rigorous training program, at The Institute (Morris Material Handling crane educational facility), so they can identify issues before they become problems. Technicians deliver clear, concise reports that prioritize equipment deficiencies, from the most critical (safety) to least critical (general maintenance). Digital photos of the most critical safety issues are often provided.

Regulatory Compliance

Crane and hoist inspections, from Morris Material Handling, help to ensure regulatory compliance. To meet U.S. and Canadian requirements, crane owners must complete periodic inspections of all overhead cranes (schedule dependent upon the service class and environment of crane) and maintain a certification record of inspection reports.

Planned Preventive Maintenance

Crane and hoist inspections can help to lower the cost on equipment ownership by limiting breakdowns and extending the service life of lifting equipment. With a proactive inspection and maintenance program, facilities will experience fewer accidents and increased uptime. Maintenance repairs can be scheduled for a time that will not interrupt production, to reduce downtime. Service personnel deliver a repair and parts proposal to help extend the service life of key lifting equipment. Preventive maintenance and modernization plans can also be developed after a complete inspection of the equipment and its components.
