Custom cranes

ladle handling crane| Special cranes for unique needs — customized lifting solutions

At Konecranes, we understand that there’s no “one size fits all” in lifting. Many industries require individually designed cranes tailored for specific factory processes and business needs. So we offer custom cranes optimized to operators’ precise requirements. As needs change, so can the cranes, upgraded and modernized. Custom cranes often use standard Konecranes products in unique ways, with new design elements for specific purposes.

Custom cranes are used in many industries, from metals production to general manufacturing, with each process requiring something different. A crane for a steel mill needs protection from heat and dust. Power plants and waste-to-energy facilities require specialized grabs. Car factories use special cranes for coil handling, stamping, and assembly. Mining and primary metals processing often takes place in special environments, in which cranes need particular adaptations.
