Crane Reliability Study

How much life is left in your crane? 

Rising maintenance costs. Challenges to meet current production needs. Safety concerns. These are problems you face every day as a crane owner in a changing operating environment. 

The Konecranes Crane Reliability Study (CRS) provides accurate information detailing the current condition and future needs of your crane. The study looks at structures, mechanical components and control systems and can help guide your maintenance and modernization decisions. It can also provide information to increase the safety and productivity of your crane. 

 

All cranes have a finite service life 

You may choose to perform a Crane Reliability Study 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 

  • INFO GATHERING AND OBSERVATION 
    A team of trained Konecranes specialists observes the production and operating environment of your crane. 
  • DETAILED INSPECTION 
    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. 
  • INTERVIEWS AND DOCUMENTATION 
    Operators and maintenance personnel are interviewed, and all pertinent documentation is reviewed. 
  • EXPERT REPORT AND CONSULTATION 
    The team provides a detailed report and further consultation with advice on maintenance, modernizations and future investments. 

Have questions about your modernization needs?

If you have questions about your aging cranes an engineering assessment can help guide your maintenance and modernization decisions.
