Lifting efficiently at small workstations
Wall console cranes are ideal for work areas located adjacent to each other. They are used to transport materials to individual workspaces, and often handle components inside assembly compartments. A typical wall console crane can lift up to 10 tons no higher than 10 meters, and operates on a 10-meter girder. Its compact size allows the crane to squeeze into tight assembly lines, warehouses, or other industrial areas.
With the right kind of load, wall console cranes can slide horizontally along a track on the wall. They can be operated below overhead cranes, enabling several logistical flows in production areas. They can also handle heavier loads when compared to standard workstation lifting systems. It can be used as an auxiliary for larger overhead and gantry cranes, or by itself in very limited space.

Customer Case - Ponsse Oyj
Ponsse’s goal was to make manufacturing more flexible by unifying their crane equipment using the most advanced crane technologies available today. The assembly line was broadened through rearranging production, and the expansion of more than one hectare planned by Ponsse was unique in scale for the Finnish manufacturing industry. As a special solution, Konecranes delivered more than 60 different types of cranes, which includes wall console cranes. The lifting capacity of the supplied cranes varied from 250 kilos all the way to 10,000 kilos. Nearly a kilometer of new crane track was built in the expansion.
