  • Cranes belong to typical heavy machinery which operate in harsh environments. In many companies a critical asset in operation process and require adequate service and maintenance to avoid unplanned downtimes. With Cranes Maintenance Training (CR-MAINT) SIEMENS offers tailor-made training aimed for maintenance supervisors & technicians. In specialized training environment with real life sized motors, drives and other components as used on cranes, participants get familiar with software and hardware troubleshooting and repair of the siemens product range typically used. With a hands-on training using the SIMOCRANE Crane Management System, operational and technical status can be evaluated. Use the condition monitoring features for planning and executing preventive maintenance tasks. For details, see below.


  • This practical course is guiding attendants to work on SINAMICS infeeders, inverters, motors and brakes of the actual rating as found on modern cranes.
  • Due to a special configuration of the training system 2 motors of original rating can be operated at full speed, voltage and current. For 1 motor typical loading will be simulated using the second motor as load simulator. A full-sized Bubenzer disk brake is installed to practice tuning of the drive for proper brake setting and - release.
  • Handling of infeed and inverter faults is practiced to the extend of component level repair and system recovery.
  • The SINAMICS infeed and inverters are controlled from a SIMATIC S7-400 via PROFIBUS just as on the real crane control system.
  • The SIMOCRANE Crane Management System is available on the training system.
