West Bromwich, Konecranes UK - Customised cranes and hoists from Konecranes are playing a key role in boosting productivity at Wärtsilä's Italian engine manufacturing plant. During the last two years this facility — Delivery Centre Trieste — which produces engines for large ships and power plants, has been transformed to dramatically increase production levels and speed of throughput. The upgraded plant is now well positioned to serve the high growth opportunities opening up globally in these markets.
Application-specific hoists and cranes are helping Sandvik Hard Materials to boost production efficiency at its plant in Epinouze, which produces a wide range of cemented-carbide tools and components for automotive, aerospace, paper and other industrial sectors. Konecranes recently upgraded the lifting systems at this plant, providing a total of 25 new cranes and hoists.
