Bushman Equipment, Inc.’s professional engineers will work with you to assess how you will use your lifting device. Can it be modified to fix a recurring problem? Can it be upgraded to handle larger loads, more severe duty cycles or temperature extremes?
Shortly after arrival at our facility, a Bushman Equipment, Inc. technician performs a complete multi-point inspection of your device. Safety inspections include checking for wear, damage and distortion, checking the operating condition and in some cases performing NDT (Non-destructive Testing) inspection. Customers receive a detailed service report with photographs of deficiencies, repair recommendations, firm-price quotations, options for consideration and a comparison with the cost and lead-time for new equipment.
When you authorize repair work, experienced service technicians, electricians, certified welders and machinists will partially to completely disassemble and clean the device. Deficiencies will be repaired. The device will be reassembled, tested, repainted and new warning and capacity labels applied. Any design or testing work that we do will be in accordance with the latest revision of ASME Spec. B30.20, “Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices” and BTH-1, “Design of Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices”.
Preventive maintenance programs can be matched to your production schedules to keep your equipment operating efficiently. This reduces safety problems and costly equipment downtime.
Our factory technicians can perform in-house dye penetrant NDT. Third-party NDT inspectors for mag particle and ultrasonic testing are used when needed. All welders are certified to AWS D1.1 and AWS D14.1.
