Know your safe working limits
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 and plan actions for continued equipment use.
The Konecranes Design Life Analysis calculates the remaining design life of the structures and machineries of your crane. A qualified and trained inspector collects the data, including production history, process observations, operator interviews and crane documentation. A qualified engineer verifies all calculations.
Planning for the continued use of your crane
The analysis report for your crane will include design life calculations, conclusions and recommendations to help in planning the continued use of your crane, as well as potential insights useful in accident investigation.
This analysis fulfills the requirements of annual design life calculation required by ISO 12482:2014 and AS 2550.1–2011.
