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.
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?
Konecranes Innovation Agent Network bridges the gap between day-to-day inspiration and its capacity to benefit the customer. We take a look at the shift towards the fast, low-cost, high-return development it has enabled.
Camera applications are an essential part of Konecranes’ customer solutions. With the help of cameras, the operator can instantly know what is happening several meters away from his location: cameras are able to see what human eyes can’t.
Big data seems like the answer to everything – but how can you separate essential information from the vast sea of data and really transform that into a concrete business advantage?
The performance of large Li-Ion batteries and charging methods has improved considerably in recent years, prompting further developments in battery-powered Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs).
Imagine grabbing a lifting hook and guiding it into position by simply pulling it, with the crane and trolley following smoothly after you.
The digital twin is a burning topic within manufacturing industries. While it is often included in lists of today’s most strategic technologies, it has yet to be widely adopted in practice.
