Konecranes manages mining industry challenges
Whether underground or open cut, mining always takes place in a hazardous environment. Moisture, corrosive and ignitable fumes, abrasive dust, and the risk of rock face collapse are all real challenges. A productive mine works fast and rarely stops as ore is sent to processing as soon as it is extracted. Downtime can halt an entire operation and disrupt demanding schedules. Konecranes provides mining cranes and other lifting solutions that help you manage your industrial challenges.
Durable and safe equipment to support your mines
We undersatand that heavy duty process cranes always need to be designed for their specific circumstances. Able to carry extra-heavy and dangerous loads, they must also be protected against corrosion from heat, dust, moisture, and constant use.
Created specifically for mining, the explosion proof Hevi-Lift hoist is designed for HMI H1 through H5 severe duty requirements. Our coker cranes have been developed just for moving coke, and include protection for both components and operators. Tailored service duty cranes are particularly good for overhead materials handling in all mining applications.
Konecranes also makes a range of smaller cranes ideal for mining conditions. For example, an electric chain hoist built for explosive atmospheres is good for maintenance tasks. We even have manual hoists for hazardous environments, if you cannot use electrics in your specific location.
Our automated load control features make operating our cranes simple and easy. With advanced features your load is always exactly where you want it.
Not just machines, but service as well
We don't just sell you some cranes and forget you. We want to enter a long-term partnership with you to guarantee safe and reliable cranes. Konecranes has the skills and international resources to ensure repairs and replacements are done as quickly as possible.
