Improving safety and productivity in Real Time
Lifecycle Care is our comprehensive and systematic approach to maintenance, supported by world-class digital tools and processes. We deliver Lifecycle Care in Real Time by connecting data, machines and people. We use real-time visibility of comprehensive maintenance and usage data combined with our knowledge and experience to deliver safety and productivity improvements to our customers.
Inspections and preventive maintenance identify risks and improvement opportunities, and support compliance with regulations and standards.
Predictive maintenance utilizes condition monitoring, advanced inspections and data analytics to predict component or equipment failure.
Corrective maintenance and retrofits address safety and productivity issues and capitalize on improvement opportunities.
Consultation services guide decision making and uncover critical issues, using advanced technology and trained specialists when a deeper look at a crane and its components is required.
Modernization services prolong the economic service life of equipment and achieve increased capacity, speed, duty or load control.
New equipment & spare parts from simple chain hoists and light crane systems to industrial and process duty cranes plus spare and replacement parts.
Highest Lifecycle Value
Lifecycle Care in Real Time is designed to maximize the productivity of uptime and minimize the cost of downtime, thereby achieving the highest lifecycle value for our customers' equipment.
Delivering Lifecycle Care in Real Time
In the field, our mobile-enabled inspectors and technicians enter inspection and maintenance data following the Risk and Recommendation Method, using our proprietary MAINMAN software. They can access maintenance history, equipment usage and operating information and look up spare parts and manuals.
TRUCONNECT® Remote Monitoring uses sensors to gather usage data—running time, motor starts, work cycles and brake condition. Alerts are notifications, by text or email, of events such as hoist overloads, emergency stops and over-temperatures.
TRUCONNECT Remote Support provides 24/7 access to a global network of crane experts and specialists, offering problem solving and troubleshooting to help reduce unplanned downtime.
Customers have access to yourKONECRANES.com, our customer portal. Usage data, maintenance data and asset details are linked, giving 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 users make fact-based decisions.
Anomalies can show up as faults, such as overloads. These events are considered abnormal and should be addressed promptly as they occur. Knowing when an overload occurs is the first step in identifying its cause.
Patterns help reveal relationships between variables. For example, overload or emergency stop alerts or excessive starts may indicate the need for operator training aimed at reducing human-error downtime and the risk of safety incidents. Recurring motor overheats may indicate needed changes in equipment or process.
The study of trends can help prioritize corrective action and investments. Analyzing data behavior over time supports the development of predictive maintenance.
Our consultative approach can help guide your decision-making. We take time to share our findings, provide recommendations and discuss how each action can optimize various aspects of your operations and maintenance.
