Springfield, OH – The preventive maintenance inspection included in Konecranes Mainman Assessment has now been expanded to more closely match Canadian Standards Association (CSA) requirements for compliance.

Konecranes inspects over 430,000 cranes worldwide using the Mainman platform. Introduced in 1993, the proprietary Mainman software interface for inspections and regulatory compliance has just added an operational inspection product designed to be used in between periodic compliance inspections for overhead cranes in Canada. Crane owners who are not doing operational inspections can be deemed out of compliance by the CSA.

“In addition to improving safety, this program identifies problems early and helps customers extend the life of their equipment, provided they take the advice offered and follow the recommendations,” said Jim Skowron, vice-president of sales for Konecranes Region Americas Service division. “Working with Konecranes and Mainman helps crane owners achieve compliance with Canadian inspection requirements.”

The Mainman inspection covers a myriad of potential issues with overhead cranes. It includes a checklist of up to 225 individual items that are inspected and provides an in-depth picture of crane condition. Konecranes Mainman software streamlines the data collection process and allows the customer to see reports on each crane in a consistent, actionable format that can be accessed in a paper report or through Konecranes secure online portal at http://www.mycrane.com.

In addition to assisting with compliance requirements for crane inspection, Mainman Assessments detail preventive maintenance opportunities and actions to help customers maximize the lifecycle of each crane.
