Product design of Slab cranes
Slab cranes are designed to be operated efficiently, uninterruptedly and safely in continuous use. The design conforms to the requirements of international standards.
Konecranes take care of safety issues without reducing productivity. Overload protection, the ‘emergency stop’ system bypassed from PLC, derailment supports, and end limit switches are automatically standard features of the equipment.
Advanced automation function options enable improving safety but also lead to better productivity. Such options are DynAPilot load sway control, AutOPilot End positioning, and AutOPilot protected areas systems.
All parts of the mechanical and electrical equipment are designed so that they are easily accessible from permanent service platforms for adjustment, lubrication, inspection, maintenance and repair. Emphasis is placed upon quick replacement of faulty or worn parts as opposed to repair.
Improved crane reliability and availability can be reached with extensive real-time measurement and diagnostics data. The most sophisticated version of the diagnostic tool provides clear reports for analyzing the use and productivity of the crane.
Product range of slab cranes
The slab crane can be equipped with mechanical and hydraulic tongs for single or multi-slab handling. Gripping speed is reduced to a minimum to get full productivity in the process. The crane traveling speed can go up to 150m/min. The lifting capacity can be as much as 180 metric tons.
