Best Practice in OH&S Konecranes – RopeQ and RailQ diagnostic technology Whether it’s lifting, lowering or moving, cranes and other lifting equipment need to be operating at optimum efficiency in production lines and warehouses in order for the customer to be as productive as possible. A small fault can have a large impact on the overall process. RopeQ and RailQ are the most advanced forms of testing available for wires, ropes and crane structures. Using these diagnostic tools, Konecranes expert technicians can identify any flaws on ropes or wires, even those not visible to the human eye. They also identify instances where machinery is not aligned properly, causing additional wear and tear, or inefficient operation. Konecranes’ safety and reliability diagnostic technology is vital to the efficient functioning of materials handling, land transport and port lifting facilities. The introduction of Konecranes RailQ and complementary RopeQ diagnostic technologies follow the launch in Australasia of the company’s comprehensive Crane Reliability Survey™ (CRS) audit service to help industries to determine whether their overhead lifting equipment achieves optimum reliability, performance and mandatory safety standards.
