Crane Symposium

What you will Learn:

The AIST Crane Symposium is the premier event in the steel and heavy-duty crane industry. A broad range of knowledgeable and experienced crane engineers, builders, mechanics and operators will once again deliver practical information based on actual experience in the form of short presentations to an audience that is 100% involved with and interested in heavy-duty electric overhead cranes.

The goal of this symposium is to present technologies available to upgrade existing electric overhead traveling (EOT) cranes towards Industry 4.0 as well as provide information to make them and their runways the safest, most reliable, durable machinery and equipment in the industry. This two-day program will include presentations focused on safe work practices and ergonomics; electrical, mechanical and structural maintenance techniques; crane inspection technologies; and best practices in EOT crane modernizations.

Who You will Meet:

Attendees will come from all facets of the overhead crane field. They will include crane maintenance personnel, crane manufacturers, equipment manufacturers and engineering consultants. Many visitors to the symposium come from steel countries around the world, creating a true international exchange of ideas and case studies.
