How to Operate Light Duty Overhead Crane?

There are generally three operation methods for the overhead crane operation, including pendant control, wireless remote control and cabin control. In an operating process, you may choose one control system or any two of them to make a combined use. Each operating system has its pros and cons, so you need to determine the most practical and economical operation method according to your need.

In a normal circumstance, this overhead traveling crane adopts pendant control or remote control to perform lifting movement. Pendant control requires operators to hold a wired button box, so in the lifting process, they must be close to the lifting loads, which may easily lead to accidents. Besides, because of frequent friction, stretching and winding, the wire control may get damaged easily. Thus in many actual occasions, the wireless remote control is commonly adopted for the sake of safety. This operation method allows the operator to choose the best position, which is not only for safety, but achieves a wide view of the lifting loads. It is also a cost-efficient operation method.

In contrast, the cabin control will cost much and also require a professional cab driver. It is more often used for heavier loads or harsh working environment, such as foundry and steel mill, so the cab operation can better protect the crane operator and avoid potential accidents.

  2. Remember that never operate the crane when some crucial components are worn or damaged, and also you should repair or replace the worn parts immediately.
  3. During overhead crane operation, operators or other personnel should always remain clear of lifting loads, and in no circumstances should an operator stand below a load.
  4. The lifting movements should be smooth and stable, and any rapid movement or overload should be avoided.
  5. For pendant control, you should never pull the hoist by pendant cable, and after operation, the pendant should be put away so as not to make an obstacle.
