ASME Standard for Lifting Devices

◙   The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is a professional association of engineering and a nonprofit organization.

ASME has over 120,000 members ( 2006 data ) in almost countries of the world and was founded in 1880 in hoboken , new jersey by Alexander Lyman Holley (1832-1882), Rossiter Worthington (1817-1880), y Edison (1832-1916).

ASME standards are voluntary, unless the standards have been incorporated into a legally business document.

The ASME standards B30 for lifting equipment are already have 100 years old.
