As a crane manufacturer, we maintain one of the largest inventories of replacement parts and crane accessories in the midwest. In addition, our skilled, trained parts specialists can source and deliver repair parts for all brands of cranes and hoists in minimal time. Rely on our experience, proven performance and thorough understanding of crane operating systems and requirements to get the right parts fast. If installation is required, or a nagging problem persists, call our service department for an inspection or repair of your equipment. We are at your service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The best design is only as good as the care taken in fabrication. Strict specifications, rigidly adhered to during all phases of the assembly process assure you of a quality, cost-effective lifting tool. Built of structural steel girders which meet or exceed C.M.A.A. design specifications, UESCO cranes have a minimum deflection of 1/600, with a built-in safety factor of 5 to 1.
UESCO maintains a fleet of service trucks and installation crews skilled in all trades related to crane erection and servicing. These technicians bring years of experience and factory training to the jobsite, ensuring a safe, efficient installation with all equipment adjusted to the manufacturer’s operating specifications.
One of the most important elements in our total service package, preventive maintenance is built into each crane delivered. Our on-going program of on-site inspection is your assurance of maximum utilization of your crane investment. By scheduling periodic maintenance, repairs and inspections can be made during equipment “off hours”, instead of breakdown repairs required when you need the crane the most.
Our service technicians are qualified to repair all makes of overhead material handing equipment. Our service department is on call around the clock, seven days a week to handle all emergency repairs. We guarantee same day service for breakdowns and the best delivery on reworks in the industry.
UESCO’s 90 plus years of experience shows best in our cost-effective pre-engineered designs: single and double girder in both top running and under-running configurations; all featuring dual-motor drive systems. Capacities range from 1/2 thru 40 tons, with spans to 100 ft. Custom designed cranes to meet your specific needs are also available, providing the same performance and service-ability evident in the pre -engineered cranes.
Standard controls feature a through the door fused manual disconnect switch with lock out; a magnetic disconnect controlled from the pushbutton for emergency on/off and a full magnetic reversing traverse control. Electronic soft-start acceleration with adjustable torque magnetic disk brakes is standard for smooth starts and stops to prevent excessive hook swing. All control panels feature modular design IEC contactors mounted on a DIN rail with all external connections at terminal strips. Single speed, two speed and multi-speed adjustable frequency control are available. Control location is available from floor, cab or radio remote control.
Standard bridge electrification is a flat cable festoon suspended in loops from an enclosed steel track rigidly supported from the bridge structure. Figure 8 rigid electrification, cable reels and messenger wire are also available.
UESCO manufactures cranes with dual-motor drives as standard. All crane drives utilize helical gear reductions, splash lubricated for dependable service and longer life. Minimum L-10 bearing life is 5,000 hours. Top running crane wheels are double flanged, stationary or rotating axle, with a minimum of 325 BHN hardness. Under running wheels are single flanged, machine steel with a compound tread for longer wear and dependability.
