Crane Modernization


Absolute Crane Service specializes in modernization and upgrades in addition to being a leading installer of new overhead crane installations. Overhead crane investments can be extended and made more productive with new, more efficient hoists and drives, updates to electrification systems, or drive control packages including state of the art variable frequency control. Absolute can also refurbish hoists, trolleys and cranes, to not only look better, but perform more efficiently as well.

Benefits of Crane Modernization:

Without the long cord and pendant, wireless radio controls are easier and safer to use. Radio and infrared remote controls are available in either single, two, or multiple step buttons.

Upgraded electrical systems and new components will function more efficiently, and in turn, minimize future downtime. Whether it’s new speed and motion controls or cab to pendant conversions, Absolute Crane can modernize your system for a fraction of the cost of a new system.

Older cranes can be improved to a higher level of productivity and safety. Our projects can include the following:

  • Increase capacity
  • New Speed and motion controls
  • Cab to pendant conversions
  • Radio and infrared remote controls
  • Electrification systems
  • Major mechanical components

Typical modernization programs cost a fraction of new crane systems, regardless of make or model.
