At our Rockford, IL, location, our in-house inspection team will perform a detailed inspection of your lifter. Detailed inspections and tests identify any wear, damage and compliance with applicable ASME standards.  Before any repairs are made to your equipment, the Caldwell Service Team provides a complete inspection report describing the extent of damages, repairs required, and a firm quote.

We can also send an experienced technician to perform on-site inspections of your equipment through operational tests and visual examination.  Minor repairs can often be performed on-site to help miminize downtime.
