Konecranes’ in­dus­try-lead­ing RailQ run­way anal­y­sis pre­vents down­time and op­ti­mises main­te­nance pro­grams

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

Konecranes South East Asia Pa­cific’s over­head crane main­te­nance di­ag­nos­tic tool, RailQ, ac­cu­rately mea­sures rail align­ment, re­duces un­due wear and helps users to bet­ter plan main­te­nance and re­pairs in busy ware­houses, ports and man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­i­ties.

The unique RailQ align­ment sur­vey tech­nol­ogy was de­vel­oped to pro­vide faster, safer, and more ac­cu­rate anal­y­sis than any other type of rail sur­vey avail­able world­wide, says Konecranes. RailQ’s highly pre­cise and state-of-the-art sur­vey tech­niques – cou­pled with Konecranes-spe­cific soft­ware – ac­cu­rately mea­sures straight­ness, el­e­va­tion, rail-to-rail el­e­va­tion, and span of the rails. The re­sult is a pre­cise, re­li­able run­way anal­y­sis that pro­vides cost-ef­fec­tive so­lu­tions for any rail sys­tem and for all makes and mod­els of cranes, and takes a frac­tion of the time to con­duct as com­pared to tra­di­tional rail sur­veys.

“Align­ment de­fects can be over­looked or un­de­tected both by crane own­ers/op­er­a­tors and ser­vice com­pa­nies, of­ten at sig­nif­i­cant cost,” says John Bai­ley, Gen­eral Man­ager, Ser­vice De­vel­op­ment, Konecranes SE Asia Pa­cific, which is an in­te­gral part of the Konecranes group, an or­gan­i­sa­tion that glob­ally has over 430,000 cranes un­der main­te­nance con­tract.
