Benefits of Centix

Centix Online is suitable for manufacturers, inspection companies, and users of lifting and hoisting equipment alike. Here’s how it benefits you:

The certificate comprises three main parts: recording documentation such as type approval and EC declaration, daily inspections, annual visual inspections, and four-yearly pressure testing. Centix plays a crucial role in assisting customers in obtaining and maintaining this IIA certificate. Through advanced software solutions and support, Centix streamlines the inspection process, records and analyses inspection results, and automatically generates reports. This simplifies the certification process for organizations, enhances safety, and saves costs by efficiently managing their lifting and hoisting equipment.

Interesting for:

Logging

Log details of your lifting and hoisting equipment, ranging from hoists to transport wheels and from winches to chain operations. You have the option to import your own lists or utilise checklists provided by Centix. Checklists are categorised into various groups, including inscriptions, documents, maintenance status, and potential defects or failures.

Setup

Establish periodic and statutory inspections, repairs, installations, and necessary adjustments. Centix allows you to keep your crane books up-to-date as well.

Standard maintenance and inspection plans

Utilise Centix’s standard maintenance and inspection plans to conduct nearly all visual inspections. Simply check off each question as you complete it. Encountered an anomaly? Attach a note or photo. Highlight the deviation in the photo, and then finalise the inspection.

Synchronize app

After conducting all inspections in accordance with the NEN 818 standard, synchronise the Centix Mobile App in one step. If you use measuring instruments for electronic inspections, you can transfer the data to Centix Web. The status of the inspected lifting and hoisting equipment will be automatically updated, and inspection certificates will be made available.

Best Practice for NEN 818, NEN 13155 and NEN 14502 inspections

Security comes first — whatever you require or need to have legally documented. By ensuring proper documentation, you can guarantee safety for your employees, customers, and everyone involved. NEN 818, NEN 13155, and NEN 14502 contain detailed regulations. In addition to daily inspections and annual visual inspections, the law mandates that lifting equipment undergo a pressure test every four years, during which the equipment is subjected to high-pressure testing.

 

With our software, we aim to assist our customers in conducting inspections and tests in accordance with the standards for lifting and hoisting equipment as much as possible. The TCVT (Toezicht Certificatie Verticaal Transport) foundation and EKH (Erkende Keurbedrijven) set these standards in the Netherlands. Using maintenance and inspection plans for components such as chainwork, steel slings, hand hoists, and electric hoists/winches, you can record the necessary information to comply with these regulations. In Centix inspection software for the registration, management, and maintenance of your lifting and hoisting equipment, you can document and track it all, providing you with a comprehensive overview. When the inspector arrives, you can offer insight at the push of a button.
