    The Critical Component Assessment is an inspection process that uses non-destructive technology to uncover defects and deficiencies in critical load-bearing and safety-related overhead lifting components. Certified inspectors use thermal imaging and electromagnetic-inductive technology to assess internal wires, strands, and wire rope core; mechanical coupling between hoist motor and gear box; motor winding insulation; and mechanical components.
