Konecranes yard cranes, manned and automated, offer valuable advantages in productivity, reliability and growth to fully automated operations.
Konecranes yard cranes are smartly designed. It begins with how the core lifting components (motors, gear- boxes, control systems) are designed and manufactured in-house. It continues in the intelligent design of the steel structure, which maximises the crane’s energy efficiency over its lifetime of use.
Active load control
Konecranes’ patented Active Load Control (ALC) system is an integrated sway prevention and horizontal fine positioning system. ALC allows optimum cycle times to be reached in all operating conditions – even with an inexperienced driver.
Safety and operator comfort
Safety and operator comfort/alertness are closely related. Understanding this, we put a lot of thought into cabin design. Our cabins provide a very stable and smooth drive experience. Controls and information displays are ergonomically arranged so the operator can precisely control his crane.
