"Bespoke Engineering offers the highest quality crane repairs, and cost effective crane service solutions, dedicated to customer satisfaction."
BES offer a wide and varied range of drives, coupling arrangements, and braking systems. Services range from simple brake shoe replacement & adjustment through to the design supply and installation of full drive systems.
We can offer repair, re-furbishment (subject to availability of parts/spares), re-alignment, up-grade & new equipment. We have a vast knowledge of AC-DC crane control systems, inverter drives & "Microsen" drive controls.
The above contract included the supply and installation of a new motor, combined brake drum & coupling, and new brake which together formed part of a flood defence system.
BES offer a wide range of on-site load testing services ranging from below the hook tackle and equipment testing, to full crane load testing.
The testing can be carried out in various ways dependant on the nature of equipment, load to be applied and the surrounding structural environment.
The Load can be applied in various ways utilising standard certified test weights, load applied to a fixed anchor point via load cell, use of water weights (where for example the existing floor loading capacity is inadequate to take the load required to test the crane).
One example of this method of load testing is utilised where, the load required to test the crane exceeds the loading capacity of the existing building floor structure, thus rendering the use of traditional certified test weights unfeasible, as the required test load cannot be sub-assembled on the floor prior to lifting.
Utilising this method the load bags are attached to the crane empty. They are then filled gradually with water whilst utilising a calibrated load cell, until the required load is attained. Once tests are completed the water is gradually drained away again. In this particular instance 91 ton was applied to a turbine hall crane.
