From specialist to specialist

Specialists train your operators

Our on-site training programs cover the following topics:

  • Details of magnet system operation 
  • Specifics of the given magnet system
  • Safety aspects
  • Troubleshooting techniques 
  • Preventative maintenance 

Get your own maintenance team ready

We also provide specific training addressing your maintence personnel to:

  • Read event logs
  • Diagnose faults and detect malfunctions 
  • Perform fault recovery actions 
  • Plan and perform preventative maintenance 
  • Remove and replace spare parts

Operator training

Efficient operation by qualified personnel

Efficient operation of the magnet system means:

  • Proper usage according to specifications
  • High levels of productivity – no downtime
  • Safe operation
  • Optimum life cycle costs – minimal maintenance and long service life

The best results are achieved when the operators have adequate training and the system is regularly used. Ideally operators should also have several years of experience in using crane and magnet systems.

Training concept

Drawing on the company’s broad experience as a manufacturer, TRUNINGER offers operator training focussed on practical operation of the system. The training normally takes place at the customer premises.

Initial training generally forms part of the system deliverables and is provided following  commissioning. Refresher courses or training sessions for new personnel are also conducted on site, and ideally linked with other TRUNINGER services, such as  maintenance, maintenance training or inspections.

Training programs for TRUNINGER Lifting Magnet Systems

The areas covered by the training are based on the TRUNINGER User Guide.

Operator training focuses on:

  • Safety aspects
  • Normal operation
  • Fault diagnosis and troubleshooting

On completion of the training operators receive a TRUNINGER certificate confirming their participation.

Maintenance training

Availability and reliability by maintenance

Customers expect high levels of availability and reliable operation from their magnet systems. Breakdowns and interruptions by maintenance need to be kept to an absolute minimum. 
All TRUNINGER systems are designed for lowest maintenance. Nevertheless, some preventative maintenance is necessary for ensuring optimal availability and reliable operation as well as guaranteeing a long service life.


Maintenance levels

TRUNINGER splits maintenance into three levels:

Maintenance level 1  Performed by the operator

Training includes:

  • Level 1 safety guidelines
  • Cleaning tasks and mandatory system checks
  • All of operating functions and detection of malfunctions
  • Detection of mechanical damages on spreader beams, magnets,  cables or cable reelers
  • Read out events on InfoPick
  • Any maintenance inside the controller cabinet are subject to higher level 2 training


Maintenance level 2  Performed by trained maintenance staff

Level 2 maintenance training is provided in-house at TRUNINGER and usually lasts 4-5 days.
Training includes:

  • Level 2 safety guidelines
  • Download the event log via Bluetooth or serial interface
  • Track and isolate faults based on the event log
  • Replace mechanical or electrical spare parts
  • Reboot the magnet system


Maintenance level 3  Performed by TRUNINGER or approved agent

Level 3 maintenance tasks must be performed by TRUNINGER technicians or by TRUNINGER-approved local agents. Level 3 maintenance tasks cover any changes affecting the system specification, functionality or safety.
For example:

  • Reworking/replacing magnets or electronic components
  • Repairing electrical components
  • Changing system configuration or parameters
  • Reprogramming or upgrading the main board
  • Recommissioning a modified magnet system


Training concept

Drawing on the company’s broad experience as a manufacturer, TRUNINGER provides the opportunity for customer’s staff to be trained for level 1 and level 2 maintenance.
