Hoist Inspection and Verification

Hoist Inspection and Verification Services

Hoisting and lift systems are important devices allowing operators to move and manipulate extremely heavy materials in a variety of different industrial settings. They come in an assortment of models and capacities, allowing operators to efficiently obtain the results they need without having to maneuver excess equipment.

Whether using an overhead fully automated trolley hoist or a handheld manual in-line chain hoist, it’s important to inspect these devices regularly to ensure materials remain held in place without slipping or falling entirely. In addition to regular service such as inspection and verification, many operations use chain hosts and lift systems in tandem with a force gauge such as a calibrated force dynamometer to ensure an overload does not occur.

If you’re regularly using chain or overhead hoists within your industrial operation, it’s important to ensure that any force measurements required for safe operation are met. At Cross Precision Measurement, we can calibrate any force measurement devices for hoists and make sure your operation is compliant and safe.

Calibration and Inspection for Chain Hoists

Regularly used hoists should be inspected at regular intervals alongside any force measurement equipment verifying that inspection. This ensures both the accuracy of any force gauges as well as the safety of chain or overhead hoists.

Improperly calibrated or out-of-calibration equipment can lead to significant problems down the road if not dealt with properly. An incorrectly reading dynamometer can lead to hoists routinely moving loads outside of tolerance limits. Or can lead an operation to incorrectly believe a hoist will pass inspection. These problems can lead to unexpected stoppage, lost revenue, and worker safety concerns.

The precision measurement group at Cross provides hoist inspection and verification with ISO 17025 accredited force generation and measurement up to 120,000 lbs. In addition to visual inspection, our technicians can generate a known load with our NIST traceable master standards and report over time any loss in strength of hold.

In addition to precise calibration services, our technicians also provide As Found, As Left readings in addition to calibration certificates. With these, you can see the exact status of your equipment, when it was last calibrated, and when it is up for recalibration. Further, all of this calibration documentation is available 27/7 through GageSuite®, the Cross online calibration tracking system.

When it comes to calibration services for manufacturers and others within the industrial world, the two most important considerations are accuracy and consistency. At Cross Precision Measurement, we strive to provide the highest degree of accuracy in calibrations every single time. That way, you can trust that your force instrumentation or equipment is providing accurate readings every time.

Did you know... the precision measurement group at Cross was founded in 1939 by our current CEO's grandfather, Jim King. That's a whole lot of calibration!
Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet to paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company is an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Our ESOP started in 1979 and as of 2006, we are a 100% employee owned! Learn more about our ESOP and how that benefits both team members and our customers.
