Konecranes RailQ Runway Survey is an industry-leading rail analysis. It delivers accurate alignment information of your rail and expert recommendations for corrective action.
Cranes should travel or track along their runway rails with a minimum of skew and without binding. Improper tracking leads to premature wheel and rail wear, resulting in costly repairs and downtime, as well as inefficient and suboptimal crane operation.
There are many reasons why a crane does not travel correctly on the runway:
Improper tracking is normally investigated by performing a traditional runway survey. However, these surveys may result in days of costly downtime, and the results may not be accurate or clear and may not offer corrective actions.
Konecranes RailQ Runway Survey uses a remotely operated robot combined with a visual inspection to provide you with an in-depth view of the alignment and condition of your crane rail. RailQ measurements include span, straightness, elevation and rail-to-rail elevation.
RailQ can be performed on virtually any runway including those for overhead cranes, port cranes and woodyard cranes. The runway survey includes:
Konecranes engineers review all collected data and provide recommendations for corrective actions.
