Coil handling cranes for automotive industry

  • | We know coil handling


    A coil handling crane delivers steel coils for unreeling and blank cutting. Once the steel is pre-cut to the right size, these pieces, or blanks, are pressed in a stamping machine to form the parts of a car body, such as the hood, doors, trunk, roof, and so on. Pressing involves a sequence of 3-5 consecutive stamping operations with forces ranging from 1,000 – 25,000 kN to produce the part.

    A Konecranes coil handling crane is designed to travel long distances at fast speed to keep work cycles short for the demanding production schedules of the automotive industry. With the right attachment for the easy and safe handling of coils, the standard lifting capacity of the crane is 80 tons. It can also be customized for your special requirements.
