◙ 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.
