Preventative Maintenance

Material handling equipment is an integral part of business operations. Properly functioning material handling systems and equipment enables companies to produce high-quality products, efficiently operate delivery systems and keep the bottom line healthy. Preventative maintenance ensures day to day operations run smoothly.

Centex Material Handling provides preventative maintenance services to help our customers avoid or mitigate equipment failure. Preventative maintenance involves regularly inspecting equipment, systematically conducting maintenance tasks and correcting issues proactively, rather than reactively. We preserve and restore equipment by identifying and replacing worn components before they fail. This maintains satisfactory equipment conditions, improves plant reliability, prevents unplanned downtime due to equipment failure, reduces long term costs and ensures employee safety overall.

Load Testing

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has criteria and rules for load testing as part of regular crane maintenance making crane load testing mandatory, not optional. Cranes and hoists must be weight tested after initial installation or if altered in any way. Centex Material Handling offers professional and certified load tests for all material handling equipment where we test the capacity of overhead cranes, hoists, lifts and specialty material handling equipment.

It is critical that lifting equipment such as overhead cranes and hoists are in proper working order before placing them in service for the safety of both employees and the facility overall. Load testing helps prevent industrial accidents by determining how much weight a crane or hoist can handle and reveals any functional errors that occur from applying stress to equipment.

Inspections & Repairs

At Centex Material Handling, we perform inspection services for overhead cranes, conveyor systems and other material handling equipment. Our professional and certified technicians take great pride and care in meticulously inspecting all components of your equipment and provide a detailed report of any deficiencies found.

We take this service very seriously because we understand that detecting equipment problems and repairing them before they escalate into costlier issues is essential to running a successful material handling business. When equipment has even minor damage that goes unrepaired, this can result in further damage, accidents, and risk to operators or goods. Rely on our inspections to give you the data to quantify trends with equipment problems, isolate causes of damage, and save your company money.
