Maintenance, inspection and Load testing
With our combined knowledge and experience of lifting machines we can offer a tailored made maintenance contract to suit various environments and applications. Our scheduled service visits mean identifying mechanical, safety and possible problems before any down time and added costs occurs proving invaluable to the mining/construction industry. A comprehensive report drafted on each lifting machine with photographs includes recommendations related to possible safety risks, existing improvements as well as a recommended spare part inventory.
Onsite maintenance and inspection training
Cranemec Group have visited many sites where due to a lack of knowledge and training, lifting equipment and machines are not being used and maintained correctly therefore shortening their lifespan and increasing the risk of injuries and/or fatalities.
Our wealth of knowledge and experience we have developed specialised on site training courses to assist with familiarising the relevant personnel with their own lifting equipment both practically and theoretically. Personnel gain the ability to perform in house maintenance and inspection to the required standards and manufacturers recommendations.
The courses includes in depth coverage of lifting equipment components, inspection and maintenance evaluation, use of inspection tools and reports. The hands-on approach backed up with invaluable course notes is proving to be the most popular and successful choice where the students gain the skills necessary to build their confidence and portfolios. The courses are vital for any personnel involved with lifting equipment from maintenance staff to riggers/operators as well as safety officers. Most of our courses are Engineering Council approved therefore CPD points can be earned on successful completion of the courses.
Cranemec Group is registered with the South African Department of Labour as a Lifting Machine Entity (LME) and its technicians are registered with the Engineering Council of South Africa as Lifting Machine Inspectors ( LMI’s) in a variety of disciplines.
“We have developed strong business relationships with our customers over the years and are able to work closely with them to meet all their lifting equipment needs. We are on hand at all times ensuring that our clients are not left stranded. Our aim is to be more than just another industrial parts and equipment supplier” Concluded Richard Haddath.
