SPRINGFIELD, OH-The Crane Reliability Survey from Konecranes is an engineering assessment designed to generate reliable information about the current condition and the future maintenance and modernization needs of a crane.
The Crane Reliability Survey from Konecranes is performed by a team of highly trained and experienced Konecranes specialists, using the most advanced technology available. The Crane Reliability Survey team uses advanced diagnostic tools to uncover problems that are undetectable by standard equipment inspections. Addressing those problems in advance may prevent accidents from occurring.
The results of the Crane Reliability Survey from Konecranes are presented in a comprehensive report that outlines the condition of the crane and provides an estimate of its remaining life. In addition, the report contains recommendations for future actions needed in order to improve performance and uptime while enhancing safety and productivity.
The Crane Reliability Survey from Konecranes allows the customer to make informed decisions regarding maintenance planning as well as equipment overhaul and replacement. The Crane Reliability Survey team studies equipment documentation, interviews users and conducts in-depth analysis using advanced instruments and proven technology. Combining expertise gained from maintaining over 300,000 cranes and the information gathered from the equipment, Konecranes is able to produce a thorough report, recommending improvements to a customers' material handling equipment and processes.
The Crane Reliability Survey from Konecranes can be tailored to meet the needs of the equipment. Typical assessments include: the CORE Inspection and Analysis, an overall inspection and analysis of the crane; the Working Conditions assessment, an analysis of a crane's current condition; the Structural and cumulative fatigue assessment, a geometric analysis and steel structure analysis; and the Maintenance and Reliability Assessment, which identifies the most critical elements that may cause downtime.
