Online maintenance and monitoring services to prevent crane failure

Vinati provides a technology-advanced maintenance service, which includes an online technical database. Our technicians can access this to provide customers with support and information. Customers also have direct access to this, in order to monitor their own cranes and stored information about maintenance service, repairs and replacements.

Vinati’s maintenance service is in operation all year, 24/7, and looks after more than 1,000 cranes a year.

If a breakdown occurs, Vinati has a fleet of mobile cranes, which are up to 40t and 20m in height, and vans and moving platforms, for the maintenance and delivery of spare parts and other services

Anti-sway and black box technology for cranes

Our patented and innovative anti-sway and black box system technology for cranes, called Acubo™, was engineered by Vinati specialists.

It uses a triaxial accelerometer computer and a gyroscope, which can detect movement of the crane and rope. Acubo™ can also automatically set the optimal dynamic displacement of the crane.

Crane laser systems for load positioning

Data logs are recorded and made available to customers for safety and management purposes. This data is integrated with technical details on the online maintenance system (CIMS™) to improve efficiency and safety of our products. Acubo™ can also be installed on an existing crane system or included in a new one.

Laser systems are used on our cranes to help operators position the loads. This increases safety and reduces operational time.
