AQ-LX Underslung Crane For Sale
AQ-LX Underslung Crane

AQ-LX under-running crane is suspended from the building roof structure. This underhung system can be use when the factory building has no support columns or insufficient height.

This small underslung crane is widely used for lifting and transporting loads in workshops and warehouses where work is not busy and heavy.

The underhung overhead crane is not suitable for workshops with acidic or other corrosive chemical gases, and must not be used for lifting molten metal, red hot metal, flammable goods and other dangerous goods.

The Common Failures And Solutions of Overhead Cranes

Common problems and solutions for hooks

The hook is the most commonly used lifting device for small bridge cranes, which bears all the lifting loads. In the course of use, once the hook is damaged and broken, it can easily cause a major accident.

The hook is cracked, deformed, and damaged due to friction and overload.

In order to prevent the hook from malfunctioning, overload lifting is strictly prohibited during use. During the inspection, attention should be paid to the opening of the hook and the wear of the section. At the same time, the hook should be annealed regularly.

Once the hook is found to be cracked, it should be scrapped according to GB10051-88, and the hook must not be repaired by welding.

Brake failure and solutions

The reasons for the brake failure and severe pin wear are:

Since the brake is a key component of the bridge crane in a high-frequency working state, the overhead crane during braking will generate a large amount of dynamic load. In this case, the various parts will bear heavy loads and impacts, thus the pin shaft is severely worn, and the brake fails.

In the prevention of this failure, firstly, the inspectors of the bridge crane are required to carefully deal with the braking requirements of each part, make adjustments in strict accordance with the requirements of the crane’s instruction manual, and carefully check the size of the gap between the block and the brake wheel.

Then, in order to ensure the normal operation of the brake under a small power torque, you can adjust the nut of the main spring to change its compression length.

In addition, it is necessary to regularly apply lubricant to each corresponding part of the crane to ensure its normal working performance, and to regularly check the completeness of the brake and its components. In case of severely worn brake bands and pin shafts, they should be replaced in time. The components should be replaced in strict accordance with crane brake parts scrap standards to ensure that they operate safely and effectively.

The oil leakage of the reducer and its solution

The reasons for the oil leakage of the reducer are:

Firstly, due to the unreasonable design of the components, such as no vent or the vent is small, the pressure inside and outside the reducer cannot be equalized, which leads to the phenomenon of lubricating oil spills.

The second is that the manufacture of the bridge crane fails to meet the strict design standards. This leads to insufficient accuracy of the joint surface of the crane’s box body, resulting in lax sealing and leakage.

The third is the improper use and maintenance of the overhead traveling crane reducer. When the crane is working at a high frequency, it will cause excessive dust accumulation in the ventilation hood and make it blocked, which leads to high pressure inside the machine and cause oil spills.

In the prevention of this failure, it is required to continuously improve the design standards of the crane, and set up a ventilation device on the reducer hole cover, so that the inside and outside of the box can maintain uniform air pressure and avoid oil leakage. In addition, timely maintenance of the crane should be conducted, including the inspection of the reducer vent, the check of each gasket, and the tightness of the bolts.
