Lifecycle Care

Lifecycle Care is a systematic, consistent, comprehensive and professional approach to maintenance, supported by world-class tools and processes.

Highest Lifecycle Value results from maximizing the productivity of uptime in addition to minimizing the cost of downtime. We believe merely keeping your cranes running is not sufficient. We must also help you achieve the highest productivity during every shift. We aim to deliver measurable improvements in safety and productivity that can be reported and reviewed, demonstrating a return on investment to you.

Our crane experts apply a systematic Risk and Recommendation Method of evaluation and a consultative, planning and review process to drive continuous improvement in safety and productivity.

Lifecycle Care in Real Time

Inspections and preventive maintenance​ identify risks, improvement opportunities and support compliance.

Predictive maintenance address safety and productivity issues and capitalize on improvement opportunities.

Corrective maintenance and retrofits guide decision making, uncover critical issues and maximize your return on investment.

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.

New equipment for installations or replacing old equipment.

 

 

Connecting Data, Machines and People to Deliver Lifecycle Care in Real Time

Lifecycle Care is our comprehensive and systematic approach to maintenance, supported by world-class tools and processes. In order to deliver Lifecycle Care in Real Time, we use the Industrial Internet, connecting data, machines and people. We bring together usage and maintenance data and combine it with our knowledge and experience, providing insights that allow our customers to optimize their maintenance operations and activities.

CONNECT​​

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.

GET INSIGHTS

Our customer portal – yourKONECRANES.com – provides visibility to usage data, maintenance data and asset details. 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 informed maintenance 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. ​

OPTIMIZE​

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.

  • regulatory compliance
  • record keeping
  • maintenance planning and prioritization
  • spare parts supply
  • equipment utilization
  • operator training
  • capital expenditure planning and justification
