Crane Reliability Study

How much life is left in your crane?

The Crane Reliability Study (CRS) is an engineering assessment that studies the current condition of your crane and provides a theoretical estimate of its remaining design life. The study looks at structures, mechanical components and electrical systems, and highlights possible maintenance and modernization needs.

All cranes have a finite service life

You may choose to perform a Crane Reliability Study because when you're not sure if your cranes are capable of meeting growing production demands, or if you’re using your crane for purposes other than how they were originally classified. If you have safety issues or aren’t sure if it’s time to modernize, a CRS can give you the information you need.

The CRS Process

  • A team of Konecranes specialists observes the production and operating environment of your crane
  • The overall condition of your crane structures and components is evaluated in detail with a focus on safety, productivity, reliability, usability and remaining design life
  • Operators and maintenance personnel are interviewed and all pertinent documentation is reviewed
  • The team provides a detailed report and further consultation with advice on maintenance, modernizations and future investments
