Runway Survey / Alignment:
Runway alignment is a critical factor to consider regarding the ongoing well-being of any crane. A runway that is out of alignment will cause undue wear to bridge wheels, wheel bearings and other bridge drive components. In spite of the negative effects of misaligned rail, this deficiency is quite common and generally overlooked or ignored. The Crane Manufacturer’s Association of America (CMAA) publishes specifications for both span and relative elevation tolerances.

J. V. Crane has extensive experience performing rail system surveys, alignments and replacements. Whether the runway is indoors or outdoors, requires only minor span realignment, or major structural elevation repairs, J. V. can assess the situation, make recommendations and take corrective action.
