The Hook Latch Trigger was conceived in response to a real challenge. It’s one example of how internal R&D collaboration and close cooperation with customers can result in innovations that help improve productivity, ergonomics and safety.
Innovations that are shaping the world of material handling.
Imagine grabbing a lifting hook and guiding it into position by simply pulling it, with the crane and trolley following smoothly after you. Konecranes Rope Angle Features provide crane operators with handy solutions for everyday lifting challenges, from snags to load swing.
Building on its growing experience in the 3D printing of metals, Konecranes’ R&D department continues to conduct research and spread knowledge on the technology within the company. The relatively new manufacturing method offers interesting possibilities in customized parts and next-generation products.
Konecranes new VFD Capacitor Reforming service helps keep your variable frequency drives (VFD) ready when they are needed, without having to remove them from your facility.
Konecranes’ Side Pulling Prevention Kit is designed to increase both the safety and lifetime of crane components.
Konecranes’ new Static Weighing System was launched in response to recent amendments to global regulations that aim to increase the safety of ships at sea. With this new weighing system, customers can verify the gross mass of their containers fast and accurately prior to loading cargo on ships.
Konecranes considers safety as the most important factor in their work and devotes significant effort to preventing fatigue failure at a product’s design stage. The company’s Steel Structure Analysis can provide a detailed view of a crane’s condition and help identify defects.
ISO 12482:2014 – an international standard created to make certain that design constraints of the intended use of a crane are clearly identified – was revised with the help of a Konecranes engineer.
A RopeQ inspection lets you know when a wire is at the end of its tether, even when there are no visible signs of fatigue.
New rotation inertia control feature helps to stabilize and control lifting with various loads and lifting heights.
What if you had access to your most important crane information – asset details, operating data and service information – in one place, available when you need it?
