Crane equipment safety

Crane maintenance is essential to safety

One of the most expensive parts of crane repair is loss of operating income that results when a crane is out of service. This is why it pays industries to establish a good working relationship with a crane manufacturer, such as Konecranes.

Konecranes crane maintenance programs are tailored to each customer’s requirements. Konecranes experts work with you to develop maintenance and crane repair on a schedule best suited to supporting your operations and lifting equipment and to help avoid unwanted maintenance "surprises." Based on experience with more than 600,000 pieces of equipment, Konecranes has developed maintenance services that promote long-term safety and performance.


Regular crane inspections can help you save time and money

A significant service offered by Konecranes is regular crane inspections. Through inspections, technicians can discover worn parts and other issues, and schedule a crane repair when it is least disruptive to your company’s operations. This saves you from having to shut down during a peak production period due to unforeseen equipment failure.

Replacing parts before they cause a breakdown helps prolong the life of a piece of equipment, prevents property damage or personnel injury, and promotes productivity. In the event that a crane does break down unexpectedly, the Konecranes service team is able to respond quickly, as its team of expert technicians stand by 24 hours a day, seven days a week.


Get the advantages of a new crane at less cost 

Konecranes also offers crane modernization which helps prevent lifting equipment from becoming obsolete and allowing it to continue contributing to your bottom line for as long as possible. At a fraction of the cost of buying a new piece of equipment, a modernization can help you increase safety and ramp up productivity. Konecranes provides this service for any make of lifting equipment.

To help customers decide whether a crane repair is a better, more cost-effective option over the long-run than replacing a piece of equipment, Konecranes can provide detailed proposals and analyses. Often, repair or modernization of overhead cranes is the more effective solution.
