... in good working order. To help manufacturers avoid costly equipment downtime, the Crane Manufacturers Service Committee has issued new standards for servicing overhead traveling cranes. The committee, part of the Crane Manufacturers Association of America (CMAA), has issued Specification No. 78, Standards and Guidelines for Professional Services Performed on Overhead Traveling Cranes and Associated Hoisting Equipment.
Formed by safety-minded manufacturer-trained and-certified technicians, the committee developed the new specification to provide guidelines and standards for servicing overhead traveling cranes and associated hoisting equipment. Through the introduction of Specification 78, CMAA intends to set higher performance standards and raise customer expectations related to the servicing of this equipment.
The 40-plus-page Specification 78 will be available for $30 per copy. Orders can be placed through the MHIA Online Bookstore or via phone to the Literature Department at (704) 676-1190.
