Undetected defects and deficiencies in critical components can lead to catastrophic failure. Most compliance and preventive maintenance inspections rely on visual observations and measurements-despite the fact that many defects and deficiencies cannot be seen with the naked eye. The Critical Component Assessment from Konecranes is an in-depth assessment that goes beyond visual observations and measurements.

Experienced and Konecranes certified inspectors efficiently perform Critical Component Assessment inspections using proprietary and proven methods such as thermal imaging and electromagnetic-inductive technology to assess the condition of critical components such as: internal wires, strands, and wire rope core; mechanical coupling between hoist motor and gear box; motor winding insulation; gear box and mechanical load brakes; and mechanical components. A complete bottom block hook inspection using NDT can also be conducted to check for cumulative fatigue that could lead to hook failure.

To provide maximum flexibility, the various elements of the Critical Component Assessment from Konecranes can be applied individually or grouped in the most appropriate combination to suit a customer’s particular application. These elements focus on critical areas of crane operation, including: an overall crane inspection and analysis, an evaluation of the operating environment, a key components analysis, and a maintenance and reliability study.

Results from the Critical Component Assessment summarize the current condition of the equipment including its current operating capacity and the extent of its usability. This comprehensive report helps customers make informed decisions on how to maximize the service life and use of equipment, prioritize maintenance schedules and forecast maintenance expenses.

Konecranes can provide customers with the required repairs, replacement parts and training to ensure safe equipment operation. Konecranes technicians can also provide customers with engineered solutions to maximize productivity while minimizing downtime and total lifecycle costs.
