Our routine inspections will reduce your costs by indentifying worn parts prior to a breakdown, which allows for planned repairs.

Hoist Systems, Inc. can provide load test certification for all your cranes and hoists. All cranes and hoists must be certified by testing their lifting capacity with 125% of the rated capacity. This must be completed on any newly installed crane prior to being placed in service and for any crane or hoist that has had any repairs done to load bearing parts.
Hoist Systems, Inc. has 27 years of experience in providing certified static and operational load testing services of cranes and hoists. We are capable of testing new, reinstalled, altered, repaired or modified equipment in order to ensure compliance with OSHA and ASME/ANSI safety regulations
Static Load Testing
Comprised of a stationary overload load test, which is conducted to verify the structural and mechanical integrity of the lifting equipment.
Operational Load Testing
Consists of performing an overload test at 125% of equipment rated capacity, and testing the following functions where applicable: hoisting and lowering of load, hoist brake hold, trolley and bridge operations.
Prior to performing any load test, a pre-inspection is performed to ensure the equipment is within safety standards. After the testing has been successfully completed, a load test certification document is provided and a load test lable is affixed to the system denoting the date the system passed testing. Those systems which fail testing will be required to be withdrawn from service until any noted deficiencies are corrected. This is necessary in order to prevent failure of the equipment and the possibility of an accident. Safety is always of primary concern.
