Konecranes has achieved market leadership in the 50-ton crane class. Around the world we offer a versatile selection of efficient, innovative lifting solutions for a full spectrum of material handling environments—manufacturing, process applications, bulk terminals, ship to shore, mining, steel and paper processing, and much more.
We engineer industrial cranes with a wide scope of capabilities—from small workstation hoists up to 50-ton cranes and well beyond—for a wide range of manufacturing applications. Our cranes are known for their exceptional reliability in around-the-clock process applications. We’ve earned a world-leading reputation for equipment that stands up to severe-duty challenges—high speeds, demanding duty cycles, hazardous environments—for exceptional levels of efficiency and productivity.
We have developed new, industry-leading technologies, in our 50-ton cranes and other weight classes, that decrease maintenance and operations costs, while elevating efficiency and safety and lowering energy consumption.
One of the most impressive innovations is SMARTON®, available in 10- to 500-ton capacities. This next-generation technology features a two-transmitter intelligent radio control—Human Interface to Machine (HIM) technology—that automatically relays critical information to the operator, such as load limits, approaching work limits, overloads, total loads, three-dimensional positioning and upcoming maintenance needs. And the transmitter enables technicians to troubleshoot from the ground.
For intermodal and rail markets, we offer non-hydraulic systems that reduce downtime and maintenance costs for high-capacity container handling applications. These machines, many in the 40- to 50-ton crane class, also are engineered with sway prevention and GPS-based technologies that facilitate smoother operation and accurate container positioning.
Konecranes’ patented CXT wire rope hoists are available in a double girder, top running configuration with capacities up to 80 tons. The compact, lightweight CXT technology maximizes use of building space and can be configured to meet a wide range of applications.
The Spacemaker SM Winch also helps reduce building costs thanks to its space-saving design that works for many applications, including cranes in the 50-ton class.
Our DynALift Hoist Synchronization stabilizes lifting of long loads with up to four hoists and is an excellent solution for handling loads with uneven weight distribution.
