Columbus McKinnon Named Associate Sponsor of ICHC

Maximum Capacity Media, Fort Dodge, Iowa, announces that Columbus McKinnon Corp., Amherst, N.Y., is an Associate Sponsor of the Industrial Hoist & Crane Conference, May 26-27, 2010 in Houston, Texas.

In addition, a representative from Columbus McKinnon will share insight on OSHA and ANSI safety topics as they pertain to hoist and crane operations. The company recently took a list of more than 100 common questions—such as what types of cranes and hoists are covered by OSHA regulations and how to determine the deceleration rate of a bridge or trolley—to its local OSHA office. Highlights from that research will be shared with ICHC attendees.

Other companies participating in the event include Ace World Companies, Alps Wire Rope, Birmingham Rail & Locomotive, Gantrex, Harrington Hoists, Hirschmann Automation and Control, Mazella Lifting Technologies, and Power Electronics.
