Having a sound runway system is extremely important to the safety and maintenance of the entire material handling structure. A runway that is out of alignment will cause undue wear to bridge wheels, wheel bearings and other bridge drive components. Despite the negative effects of misaligned rail, this deficiency is quite common and generally overlooked or ignored.
Service Crane Company provides runway inspections as part of our overhead crane service that tests the runway girder elevation and the alignment and span compliance of the runway. Both visual inspections and non-destructive testing are completed during emergency or regular runway surveys.
