Primary Metals

Complete Maintenance and Fatigue Management System for the Primary Metal Industry

In today's industrial environment, many of the cranes utilized have been in service for thirty years or more. It would not be economically feasible to replace an entire crane population at the point in which they reach the end of their expected lives.

HCSG can work with your facility to not only manage the maintenance of these older cranes, but also to design a program to deal with fatigue in existing equipment. Through determining existing damage as a relationship to expected fatigue, a program can be designed to repair, as well as upgrade, inspection and maintenance schedules. This will allow for extended crane service beyond existing life expectancies

Hoist and Crane Service Group's SYM-PAC System offers:

  • General Maintenance Including:
    • Wheel Set Replacement
    • Load Cable Changes
    • Block Replacement
    • Girder and End Truck Repair or Replacement

    Regardless of the crane, no mechanical part or component needs to be considered obsolete. HCSG's FlexParts replacement part program can recreate castings as well as machine parts.

Pulp & Paper

Pulp and Paper: One of the Most Challenging Crane Maintenance Environments in the World

140 F heat, constant steam encasement and near capacity loads! These are just a few of the evils mill cranes face every day. Operators cannot afford to go down, much less stay down in these mills. That is why mills across the country call HCSG!

24 hours a day, 365 days a year, experienced crane technicians are available to tackle ANY problem!

House Cranes

House Cranes and their runway systems have to be repaired and maintained "on the run." No problem. HCSG has completed more "House Crane" work over running paper machines than anybody. The result is no lost production.

Reel Cranes

Reel Crane come with their own unique problems. All repairs and upgrades must be packaged to allow for very tight down time windows. When using HCSG, expect faster outages and a faster return to production!

FATIGUE MANAGEMENT

Crane Structures, Runway Assemblies, Shafting etc. have expected lifetimes. The proper management of fatigue as a part of your maintenance program will head off catastrophic failure.

SITE MAINTENANCE

HCSG is in the crane business as mills are in the paper making business. Ever shrinking staffs require assigning assets to your core needs. Hoist and Crane, thru our SYM-PAC operating system, can handle all material handling equipment in the mill, freeing in-house personnel to concentrate on the paper making equipment.

"CRANE SYSTEM MANAGEMENT DESIGNED FOR AUTOMOTIVE ASSEMBLY, MANUFACTUREING AND SUPPORT"

Automotive manufacturing is no longer limited to the mid-west. Today, vehicle builders and ancillary suppliers are located wherever resources and transportation can offer an advantage.

Important Factors to Remember

Independent assessment of new equipment + lifetime maintenance plan + fatigue management + down time risk assessment = COST TO RUN (CTR), the true indicator of RETURN ON INVESTMENT (ROI) so: 1- (capitol purchase) + (ctr) / (capitol purchase) = ROI
