Cranes have evolved significantly over the last few decades. While some operations soldier on with the same lifting equipment they’ve used for years, others surge ahead, taking advantage of current technology offered on newer cranes.
Siemens Transformer (Wuhan) Co., Ltd. [herin after “Siemens Transformer Wuhan] is invested by Siemens (China) Co., Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Siemens Power Transmission and Distribution Group. The facility began production at the end of 2008, mainly specializing in the design and manufacturing of power transformers and reactors as well as the business of marketing development, sales and service.
Cranes lift and lower loads with a hoist that is attached to a trolley. The trolley moves back and forth along a bridge. The bridge moves along a runway. Some cranes – such as a jib crane – don’t have a bridge but still have a hoist attached to a trolley and can move a load in a horizontal direction.

How useful would it be if you could check the condition of your overhead crane, its critical components and its operating history whenever you wanted to? Would you want to be alerted if your crane was being operated incorrectly or outside of established safety parameters during any part of its work cycle? Instead of wondering when you should change critical components to protect production and profits, wouldn’t you rather receive an estimate of their remaining working life, enabling you to schedule maintenance at the most convenient time?
Alaskan Copper & Brass Co. was moving a large part of its operation from Seattle and Renton to a facility in Kent, Washington. The company needed new lifting equipment and also wanted to relocate some older cranes at the Rention facility, not purchased from Konecranes.
