One of the biggest challenges industrial and manufacturing facilities face on a regular basis is equipment maintenance and the potential issues that can arise when a piece of vital equipment goes down. For most of these facilities, cranes are a critical component of their operations, so downtime and low productivity are not acceptable. One significant, unplanned maintenance issue could slow production or even bring it to a halt.
A limit switch is a critical component of overhead crane safety. Limit switches are electromechanical devices that regulate everything from household appliances to industrial machinery. For an overhead crane, they provide solid, established points of reference for maintaining efficiency, reliability and safety standards.
