Customer and Konecranes expert discuss preventive maintenance

Eight key attributes of an effective crane preventive maintenance programme

Don’t let your cranes become the center of attention

Cranes and hoists are often critical components of industrial manufacturing facilities; but generally, they are not always foremost in mind. When your cranes perform at their best, doing their jobs as designed, no one complains. Few people would have reason to look up and notice them. When performing reliably, your cranes are somewhat invisible. They simply wait off stage, playing out their roles when called up and then returning to the wings until their next cue. They are supporting players, making production the star of the show.

However, the show doesn’t always play out as rehearsed. If you are a maintenance manager, it is a problem when your show goes off script, when your cranes steal the spotlight and upstage production.

Therein lies a challenge for many industrial manufacturing facilities: what is the right amount of attention at the right time so that your cranes and hoists support production by performing when called upon without fuss?
