Core of Lifting

Konecranes products are built around an integrated package of key components – gears, motors and controls – that we have designed and produced ourselves. Intended only for use on cranes, these components are made to work together seamlessly as the Core of Lifting.

Only from Konecranes.



Konecranes gears are purpose-built because of the special gear teeth needed in lifting. They have the right distribution of force for dynamic load handling.



Konecranes motors are purpose-built because of the instant power peak needed in lifting. They are accurately sized for crane applications and consume less energy than their generic counterparts.



Konecranes control systems are purpose-built to fully exploit the strengths of the key components, and how they interact with each other, as a package.
