M.E.K. Equipment Offers New Crane Bumpers

—Literature Available M.E.K. Equipment, Inc. of Newport News, Va., has recently announced the availability of their new crane bumpers.

The crane bumpers are made of foamed polyurethane, a process that allows much lower deceleration and therefore better protection of the equipment being stopped. They are offered in energy absorption capacities from 300 ft.-lbs to 700,000 ft.- lbs, and are suitable for even the largest cranes.

The bumpers can be used to replace damaged hydraulic or pneumatic equipment and are in many cases less costly than repairing old equipment. More important, in most cases the bumpers allow closer end-approach, up to 3 feet per crane, when several cranes are working simultaneously unloading a vessel.

M.E.K. Equipment offers free engineering service to meet O.S.H.A., C.M.A.A., and A.I.S.E. 69 specifications.
