General overhaul

Efficient and safe

Transform old to new. For optimum efficiency.

Demag general overhauls ensure that your plant components and equipment operate safely and reliably. Even after the end of their theoretical service life.

Cost-effective alternative to new equipment

After a general overhaul, your equipment is comparable with new technology in terms of operation, performance values and its expected service life. This is an attractive alternative to new equipment. A Demag general overhaul is carried out by specially trained partners and includes all genuine parts specified by the manufacturer.

General overhaul of hoists

Benefit from our expertise for optimum efficiency of your hoists – with a Demag general overhaul. A general overhaul makes it possible for your hoist units to be used even after their theoretical duration of service has been reached.

Legal compliance

General overhaul

Regulations, such as BGV D8 in Germany, require power-driven rope and chain hoists and crane hoist units to be taken out of service when their theoretical duration of service has elapsed. However, this does not apply if a general overhaul is carried out, as this results in a new safe working period (SWP).

General overhaul with manufacturer’s guarantee

General overhauls are performed by experienced specialists from the Demag partner network, who only use genuine replacement parts and materials based on the series product design. When the overhauled installation has passed its final function check, you are provided with a test certificate that also specifies the new theoretical duration of service.
