Konecranes series CLX02/05/10: powerful and durable chain hoists for cranes and assembly cells Konecranes has expanded its range of workstation lifting systems to include the chain hoists of the CLX series. These newly developed models have several advantages: they are more powerful, 25% faster and their service life is four times longer. The new CLX chain hoists can be employed as standalone applications such as in assembly cells for the processing industry, as well as in workstation and gantry cranes.
Konecranes has introduced a Hybrid (diesel/electric) power option for its Rubber Tired Gantry cranes (RTGs), which can reduce diesel fuel consumption by over 60 %. With the addition of this new power option, Konecranes now provides a full range of solutions for RTGs: Hybrid Power Pack, Diesel Fuel Saver, and two electric power options, the Cable Reel and Busbar. Customers can thus choose either a diesel or electric solution, depending on their business requirements. The Hybrid Power Pack and Diesel Fuel Saver provide the flexibility of diesel power, while the two electric options provide the benefits and convenience of electricity – no diesel, less maintenance, less noise and lower emissions.
To ensure that cranes used in demanding industrial processes are up and running at all times, Konecranes has recently launched an innovative remote services product family named TRUCONNECT. The first two products in this family are the TRUVIEW® data reporting service and the full-service package, the TRUCARE® solution.
A NEW STRADDLE CARRIER FROM KONECRANES Terminal quayside container unloading operations need to be linked flexibly with yard stacking operations. The new Boxrunner straddle carrier from Konecranes is the flexible link between ship-to-shore cranes and automated yard cranes.
Konecranes is introducing an industry shaping industrial crane, SMARTON®. It presents an evolution in crane technology, designed to maximize customer productivity and minimize total lifecycle costs. SMARTON® can be used in industrial sectors such as steel handling and warehousing, automotive, general manufacturing, power, workshops, automatic storage systems and mining. Depending on the set up, SMARTON® can lift loads ranging from 30 tons to more than 500 tons.
