ENGINEERING STUDIES



Out of Stock Add To Cart

Shupper-Brickle Equipment provides professional engineering studies for overhead lifting equipment to find their true capacity or determine if your material handling system can be upgraded.

What’s included in an engineering study?

 

An engineering study includes a thorough analysis of each component of your overhead material handling system, including the bridge crane or monorail, end trucks, trolleys and hoists. Each component is measured and submitted to our engineering department for evaluations considering stress analysis and deflection. Based on our calculations and OEM recommendations (where available), we provide the correct capacity and/or recommend improvements to the system. Finally, the system is clearly marked for the correct capacity and load tested.


Why do I need an engineering study?


We’ve heard it many times on the shop floor: “It’s always been this way! Why do we need a capacity rating?” In fact, using your material handling system at no more than the rated capacity is critical to workplace safety. It's cited in ASME B30.2-3.4, and there are serious risks of injury when bridge cranes or monorails are overloaded.

Systems may be unmarked for many reasons, such as when the original installation is done by a building contractor or firm outside the material handling industry. Our customers often contact us for an engineering study when they move into a new facility or resume production in a previously dormant area.

Can an engineering study safely upgrade the capacity of my material handling system?


Yes, Shupper-Brickle’s engineering studies determine how or whether a material handling system can be safely upgraded for capacity. Through our years of industry experience, we present a thorough review of the options, such as adding support steel or runway columns, switching out the hoist component or adding trolley wheels.


How much does an engineering study cost?

 

The cost of an engineering study varies greatly, and it depends on the hours spent measuring the system, preparing calculations, and conducting the load test. Any information the customer provides up-front can ease the process and reduce time spent in research, especially on older systems or obsolete equipment.  We understand that budgets are tight, and we provide free quotations and competitive estimates. Pricing starts at about $2,500 and up.

Contact Us for more information on engineering studies, custom-designed systems or services for architects and engineers.

We ship equipment across the country and worldwide, and our service area includes New Jersey, the Greater New York City area, the Greater Philadelphia area, Delaware, and Eastern Shore Maryland.
