ABB, has launched its hoist assessment service; Hoist Performance Fingerprint, in three more countries: Canada, the US and Mexico.

Hoist Performance Fingerprint aims to help customers assess and optimise the condition of their mine hoists. It has a structured audit of complete hoist systems, encompassing all electrical and mechanical parts to ensure reliable and safe hoist operation. It is a consulting and audit service developed and performed by experienced ABB service experts.

The whole hoist system is assessed, analysed and tested using high-quality data collected from over 20 pre-defined points and a structured tailored analysis tool. This data is key for any additional analysis done after leaving the site. All findings, as well as corresponding recommendations for optimisations and improvements, are then presented to the customer in a detailed follow-up report.

“The Hoist Performance Fingerprint is a cost-effective service that provides diagnostics, key findings and recommendations in less than a week,” said Remy Lanoue, Global Service Manager for ABB’s Process Industries business unit, “by assessing and analysing all electrical and mechanical parts of the hoist system, we offer our customers a comprehensive service solution from a single source. This holistic concept is unique in the underground mining market.”
