Research focused on Tech

Technology is so much Vaporware.....most of us do not grasp the tech until we purchase a Ring for the front door (to catch thief's stealing packages). so much is going on in the back round. For example, the developer of the Ring sold that to AMAZON for a few dollars....
this is just the tip of the iceberg. we at Western Slope Livery do not expect customers to call with an exact device to implement on their machine. Instead we have a large network of colleagues all whom are working on devices; that we stay in contact with and perform peer reviews on together. Most likely you as the owner/user also do not have the time to research these emerging products.....So we monitor, find and examine as many of these technologies as possible for you. As expected some are well, not so good (as we find for testing) and others meet muster. For example there is a system becoming available to restrict overhead (and possibly other type of cranes) from operating when moving items are below the operational area Still hours and hours of testing are going on to prove out the system. If this system meets safety muster it will be a great device. this device could be coupled with a interior lighting device that displays a red pattern on the operating floor further increasing SAFETY!

Performance tuning

Methods and monitoring are the corner stone of performance tuning.... Most service technicians have no time for this due to demands on the crane to service production. This all falls apart due a lack of communication with the sales team. Under service conditions, it is not just about the task of repair. Not running the unit for a period of time may lead to unsavory results. more to come....

P&H wild weasel

Folks, this come to us from an organization trying to save antiquities. Early 20th century electric (pre-OSHA) overhead, with cab, monorail on a wood beam 2ps crane..............this is men were men! might want to watch your fingers here!

Where and what is technology?

All we see is what the crane does.......what management does not see is how old the technology being used is!
Well no one ever looks up, that is the simple fact. that does not mean an old crane cannot wear new clothes.
however, not the Emperors new clothes! This is what owners and operators need to remember, simple things like
rotary bearing drive gear lubricators...let's simplify the oiler's or maintenance persons job is and how long that
support takes!
