Konecranes technician inspects hoist

A global approach to maintenance management

Preventive Maintenance Inspections identify risks and improvement opportunities. Our vast experience and expertise allow us to tailor preventive maintenance to each manufacturer’s recommendations.

Routine Maintenance, such as adjusting and lubricating, is performed to keep your equipment running while satisfying manufacturer’s maintenance instructions.

Compliance Inspections are designed to satisfy regulatory requirements. Our trained inspectors and technicians are your go-to experts on local regulations. In some countries, regulations require the use of a third party.

These essential inspection and preventive maintenance tasks are bundled into service products. Our products are combined to form our Service Programs.

Service products tailored to your requirements

In Canada, our MAINMAN™ Assessment product is a preventive maintenance inspection that is designed to give you an in-depth view of the condition of your equipment. The MAINMAN Assessment forms the foundation of our CARE Preventive Maintenance Program and can satisfy the requirements of federal and provincial safety laws. Routine Maintenance is always recommended alongside a MAINMAN Assessment.

Risk and recommendations on yourkonecranes

Risk & Recommendation Method

No matter which service product is being applied, our Risk and Recommendation Method drives our evaluation and consultative processes.

A component is inspected in order to ascertain its condition. Failures, deficiencies and violations are documented and categorized as either a safety risk, production risk or undetermined condition. In addition, a variety of improvement opportunities can be identified. Recommended actions are determined and discussed with you.

Some components that are not readily accessible for inspection without disassembly may pose an undetermined risk. Konecranes uses advanced technology and non-destructive testing (NDT) to uncover latent or hidden defects.

Gear Case Inspection: Internal components are assessed using an endoscope and oil analysis. In some cases the gear case is disassembled to perform non-destructive testing on the internal components.

Hook/Shank Inspection: Non-destructive testing is available to uncover latent defects in the hook and shank.

RopeQ Magnetic Rope Inspection: The internal wires, strands and core that are not readily visible are inspected with an electromagnetic device.
