THE UESCO CRANES QUALITY FORMULA
DESIGN & ENGINEERING
Custom designed cranes to meet your specific needs are also available, providing the same performance and service-ability evident in the pre-engineered cranes.
Uesco is a UL508A Industrial Control Panel Fabricator. 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.
