The manufacturing industry has been one of the mainstays of all industrial developments of a country. Manufacturers are responsible for moving the country’s capitalistic endeavours ahead and providing the people with the everyday products that come in use. The Electrical Wire Rope Hoist manufacturing industry is one where many companies trade their businesses and provide all-electric hoist solutions. But like all other industries, it is not devoid of technical challenges that hinder their smooth operability.
Electrical Wire Rope Hoist should be handled very delicately, as otherwise there remains a risk of accidents. Indeed, the safety of workers should be there at first. From the purchase to the operation, every step should be undertaken with the utmost care. It would help if you always make sure that the necessary criteria, namely the durability, robustness and efficiency of the hoist, are high. Therefore, you should take opinions from experienced personnel of renowned manufacturers. It will only help you to make the right choice.
Let us have a brief view of the common problems and roadblocks that entails the majority of Electrical wire rope hoist companies.
Wire ropes are an integral part of Electric Wire Rope Hoists, and they face significant challenges in their necessary make. A wire rope has three major components, namely the wire, the core and strands. All these parts are integral to the making of wire ropes and determine the load-bearing capacity of the hoists. Strands are responsible for providing flexibility while the material used in the ropes offer strength to the machine. When strands are used in lesser proportions, it decreases the overall flexibility of the machine and can result in breakage. When inferior materials are used in manufacturing, then the overall strength reduces, which also leads to potential breakages. Electric hoist manufacturers must acknowledge and meet the client specifications while selecting these wire ropes.
The hook is a vital part of the electric hoist as it is responsible for carrying the entirety of the load and has direct contact with it. The hooks are also made of different material which has varying load-bearing capacities than the others. This might result in a mismatch with the denoted strength that is marked by the manufacturer leading to unprecedented incidents during operations. Also, manufacturers must provide a safety latch with the hook so that in case the wire ropes fail they must not affect the hook.
The gearboxes need to be specific as per the client’s instructions for it to be fully functional. The manufacturing company faces a setback when they are unable to manufacture the entire gearbox as a whole and hence rely upon external sources for acquiring individual parts. The gearbox is the single most important part of the electric hoist as the entire apparatus would not work without its smooth operations. If the gearbox stops working while you are operating the electric hoist, it will cause major complications to your work.
The testing of any machine is vital before it goes off for usage. The electric hoist is no different as it requires ample testing of the manufactured wire rope to provide safety to the users. Improper testing can cause major complications to electric hoist and can lead to dangerous situations in the field. The parts mentioned above must be tested for optimum working conditions before they can be passed off for sale. Lack of proper testing also causes many horrific accidents inside the industry.
All the work in the manufacturing industry requires highly skilled labour. Electric hoist manufacturers require a similar high skill set labour force to accomplish its operations and maintain productivity. The high skilled labour force is required throughout the manufacturing procedure, the selling operations and after dale maintenance and repairing. Here the companies face severe roadblocks in finding the apt level skill set in labours who will help in the maintenance and repair as well as manufacturing procedure. Inconsistency is also a major factor when it comes to challenges faced due to labourers.
How can LOADMATE help you solve these challenges?
We, at LOADMATE, are an established industry stalwart that has managed to carve out a niche in manufacturing, exporting, supplying all kinds of material handling equipment including electric hoist, EOT Cranes and other pieces of machinery. We have been operating since before the turn of the millennium, and since then they have provided quality products all across the Indian subcontinent.
Our expertise and roadblock handling abilities are second to none and are well known throughout the industry circuit. As mentioned earlier, the sophisticated working components of the electric hoist poses many challenges for the manufacturing companies, which makes it pretty difficult for us to operate smoothly. All the products are manufactured using top quality parts and components, and we pride ourselves on our expert inspection and testing as well, which eradicates any anomalies that might hinder the working of the electric hoist altogether.
What should a customer do for a hoist inspection?
- Buying the right hoist and getting it checked regularly: Once you buy the hoist, you should make sure that it is not tormented at any point of time, especially while the operation is going on. Hence, it would help if you got it checked from a service provider every six months, or at best every year. Once the servicing is done, the service provider will attach a sticker on the wire rope hoist, mentioning the servicing date and day. Hence, before you begin the working procedure, you should check the last date of service. Keep continuing this procedure at the specified interval to prevent accidents from occurring at the workplace.
- Hire an experienced operator: The hiring of an experienced operator is a must. He should have prior knowledge about the hoist. At the same time, he must have some previous experience in another industry. Since this is a very critical job, rookies cannot be trusted with it. There is no shortage of experienced workers in India. It is even better if you discuss the basics with the operator you are willing to hire after having inquired from trusted sources and organizations. Just ask him the basics regarding the instrument as well as it’s modus operandi. Likewise, the operator will also have an idea about what type of service your industry wishes him to render.
- Having a vivid idea about every part of the rope hoist: Secondly, knowing about the various parts of the rope hoist is very important. For example, the rope hoist guide is an essential part of the device. The workers should have an idea of the kind of lifting your industry intends to do and which type of hoist parts are necessary. A lot of times, materials that undergo lifting vary in sizes.
- Knowing about the various physical parameters: You should keep a frequent check on the workers whether they are aware of the different parameters that are to be known while operating a wire rope hoist. The speed and height of the lifting are some of the primary criteria to concentrate on. Make sure none of the workers lift a person on a wire rope hoist. It is strictly prohibited, as it is dangerous for that person’s life. Consider putting a banner of “hoist work going on” or “caution: danger ahead” flag when you start operating with wire rope hoists. This is primarily for the benefit of other employees in the industry. At the same time, frequently inspect whether the workers are lifting goods above the heads of employees or not, which is again strongly unadvisable.
- Maintain proper communication with the operators: Lack of communication often leads to workplace accidents. Over the years, there have been ample workplace deaths. Sometimes it is the carelessness of the workers more than a flaw with the hoist. A survey reports around 30 workplace fatalities in an industry per year. Now the question arises, why do workers become careless? A lot of times, this takes place due to miscommunication. You should give them proper instructions. Before they start the work, ask them twice or thrice to have contended if they understood your instructions.
All these methods are with a primary aim- the safety of the workers and other employees of the industry. Since these types of hoists and cranes are very dangerous, it is a must that you continuously keep emphasizing on these steps.
