Pro-Inspector for Elevator Industry
Elevator came in to usage in the middle of 19th century. Every day in the U.S. and Canada alone elevator movement is equal to double the entire U.S. and Canadian population – over 210 billion passengers per year.
There is a misconception that manufacturer’s o f elevators are responsible for equipment maintenance. There are inspection companies that do inspections as per the safety codes established by that country.
The elevator inspection details include Cleanliness of elevator cars, car tops, pits, machine rooms and machines, Lubrication of guides, rails, suspension means, safety linkages and machines, Adjustment of doors to ensure full closure at a correct speed and proper operation of the door reopening devices. Inspection of buttons, key switches, lights, indicator lamps, and audible indicators, Testing of elevator control system, acceleration and stopping capabilities, safety circuits, fire safety features and electronics, Review of the elevator machine’s mechanical condition, adjusting or replacing gears, brakes, bearings or ropes when needed.
Elevator inspection is a rapidly growing sector that ensures safety for the travelers and goods. From a logistics standpoint, the need to coordinate inspection will be a very cumbersome task. Scheduled testing and a strong preventive maintenance program help to ensure the safety and performance of the elevators. Inspection interval of elevator is based on the usage, severity of equipment loading, operating environment and inherent quality.
Inspections of today-Highly Manual
Most of the inspection teams around the world spend only 30-40% of their time in inspections and the rest 60-70% is spent on administrative tasks such as planning, scheduling, preparing checklists, documenting and reporting inspections and so on. In maintenance it is tedious to maintain records, retrieve and review the historic data. Given the complexity of the business and increase in the types of inspections that needs to be conducted, entire process has become increasingly challenging. It is found that the industry relying on manual process to manage compliance and traceability are unable to achieve best-in-class status.
Need to Automate Inspections
Necessity is the mother of Invention!!! As the saying goes, To overcome this challenge elevator inspection industries from installation to maintenance need a one stop solution that can help inspection teams to manage the entire inspection process. Thus automating the whole process decreases the processing time and increases the number of inspections the agency or company can do in a day. It provides with real-time visibility of information to those who need it so as to analyze and take up corrective and preventive measures. Cost and time involved in doing an inspection is substantially reduced.
