Corrective maintenance is carried out after a fault is detected and is aimed at restoring your crane to a condition in which it can perform its intended function. Retrofits are a relatively easy and economical way to add current features and technologies to your existing overhead crane.
The Core of Lifting is the unifying element in lifting, only from Konecranes. It's an integrated package of gears, motor and controls, designed and made by Konecranes in-house specifically for cranes and lifting motions.
In developing our product range for hazardous environments, we combined our long experience in explosion-proof applications with our proven capacity for technological innovation. This R&D process has led to a competitive and comprehensive range of explosion-proof cranes and components available today. It includes industrial cranes and jib cranes, as well as electric and manual hoists with lifting capacities from 125 kg to 160 tons.
The steel structures of your crane shoulder the weight of your lifting operations. Those structures are subjected to fatigue as loads are lifted, and as fatigue life ends, safety can be compromised.
Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) are sometimes stored for extended periods of time between uses. If a VFD goes unused for a year or longer, it must be reformed to recondition the DC-bus capacitors and restore its condition to prepare for operation under load.
yourKONECRANES.com gives you quick and easy access to your crane maintenance information. Usage data from TRUCONNECT and maintenance data and asset details from MAINMAN are linked, giving you a transparent view of events and activities over any selected time interval. Aggregated data can be viewed, analyzed and shared quickly, for a single asset or an entire fleet. Insights can be drawn by observing anomalies, patterns and trends, helping you make informed, fact-based, maintenance decisions.
Frequent inspections, while necessary, cannot always catch machinery failure that may be caused by extremely fast crack propagation. A calculation of design life will give information that helps you assess your safe working limits.
The crane hook and bottom block components are stressed during each working cycle. Hooks can fail due to cumulative fatigue. The failures often start as a fatigue crack in the hook shank. Heavy process duty, changes in application, operation with short lifts and long travel distances and the use of below-the-hook lifting attachments can all contribute to premature cumulative fatigue.
The Konecranes Rope Analysis is designed to answer your wire rope and rope reeving questions. The analysis targets individual concerns such as rope selection, rope life, component failures, unexpected rope behavior, accident investigation or improvement opportunities.
