Services to enable Predictive Maintenance

Specific types of service products need to be in place in order to implement predictive maintenance. It is the combination of these products, the use of analytics and our consultation process that makes predictive maintenance possible. ​

The core of the CARE program includes inspections and routine maintenance. The addition of the following products is required to effectively take predictive maintenance into use.

Remote Monitoring metals industry

TRUCONNECT Remote Monitoring and Brake

Remote monitoring is used to collect equipment condition and usage data and is a key element of Predictive Maintenance.

Oil Analysis

An Oil Analysis assists in deciding the optimal oil change timing for hoisting, traveling and traversing gears. Hydraulic oil can also be analyzed. The service can provide useful information regarding the condition of internal gear components. For example, oil oxidation or metallic particles in oil are potential symptoms of running problems.

Gear Case Inspection and/or Advanced Gear Case

The Gear Case Inspection is designed to determine the condition of your crane gears and related components. A visual inspection of key components is performed, and the inspector typically checks the oil level and inspects the gear case interior and gear surfaces using an endoscope. A Regular Gear Case Inspection can be performed at any time and if a deficiency is detected, an Advanced Gear Case Inspection may be recommended for further analysis.

RopeQ Magnetic Rope Inspection

During a typical inspection, only the outer wires and strands of the wire rope can be visually inspected. Konecranes RopeQ™ technology and non-destructive testing methodology analyzes the condition of the internal wires, strands and wire rope core that are not typically visible.

Hook/Shank Inspection liftup image

Hook/Shank Inspection

This inspection is designed to uncover issues that could lead to failure of the hook or bottom block. Konecranes utilizes various proven non-destructive testing techniques such as dye penetrant, magnetic particle and magnetic rubber, in addition to a visual inspection and measurements normally performed during a hook inspection.

Design Life Analysis

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.
