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