Konecranes' CraneQ Geometric Survey accurately measures dimensional tolerances of wheels, end trucks, girders, and other components of the crane. CraneQ is based on advanced surveying methods developed specifically for crane geometry. Proprietary software and skilled survey technicians provide an extremely accurate geometric analysis of the crane.
When performing the inspection, technicians look for key indicators such as:
- Abnormal or premature wear or failure of structural components such as wheels, rails, connections, bearings and guide rolls
- Excessive noise
- Suspected skewing and/or square issues
- Structural deformation
- Positioning, moving and driving issues
CraneQ forms an ideal part of a preventative maintenance programme, because it can identify problems early on. Even if a crane is still operating well, a slight misalignment can cause component parts to wear prematurely, meaning the crane may not perform to its expected design life.
