Konecranes' RopeQ Rope Analysis targets individual concerns such as rope selection, rope life, component failures, unexpected rope behavior, accident investigation or improvement opportunities, including recommendations on extending rope and component life.
Using proprietary 3D modelling and calculation tools, Konecranes provides an engineering assessment, calculation and inspection of a company’s ropes and reeving components, based on the EN 13001-3-2:2014 standard.
Konecranes expert consultations can provide a calculated estimate of rope life, recommendations for rope selection or rope reeving geometry improvement to target a variety of issues. Benefits include:
- 3D simulation of the rope reeving provides a clear view of issues or concerns
- Can offer recommendations for extending rope life in current or future use
- Can give information that can be used to improve rope behavior
- Can provide rope failure insights with a failure investigation report
