Konecranes steel structure analysis

Wednesday, 25 July, 2018 | Supplied by: Konecranes Australia

The Konecranes steel structure analysis is able to assess the fatigue of a crane’s steel structure components, to give a realistic estimate of remaining life.

It is designed to determine whether an ageing crane can last for many more years with only minor remedial work, which is significantly cheaper than purchasing a new crane.

A steel structure analysis is performed by a trained and qualified inspector, who investigates the use history of the crane and performs a visual inspection of the whole steel structure, including the trolley structures and hook block.

If needed, non-destructive testing (NDT) can be performed. A qualified engineer will use proprietary 3D modelling and calculation software to provide a steel structure fatigue calculation. Calculation of stresses and fatigue is conducted according to EN 13001-3-1 and ISO 12482 standards.

Key benefits of the analysis include detailed information of the remaining fatigue life of the steel structure of a crane; analysis of existing crane structure outside of the design life prior to investing or installing a new hoist; information to help determine whether a modernisation or new equipment purchase is preferable; inspection plan for the continued use of the steel structure of a crane; and easy-to-interpret graphical reports with expert recommendations.
