Crane wheels manufactured by Konecranes meet or surpass industry standards. Our patented 60 Plus™ induction hardened wheels are the industry standard in wheel longevity. Better than carburizing or flame hardening, 60 Plus wheels deliver a uniform hardness profile on the wheel tread and a softer flange core to add toughness, minimizing brittle failure.
The uniform case depth on the treads results in improved ductility on flanges for increased strength. Since this results in less friction between wheel and rail, crane wheels from Konecranes can help improve rail life and lower overall costs.
Wheel assemblies save time and money
Konecranes wheel assemblies offer lower acquisition cost with the peace of mind that comes from expert assembly in factory-controlled conditions. They also reduce installation time in your facility.
Prescription wheels correct skew
Konecranes PRESCRIPTION Wheels are custom designed for each specific application. A special steering flange and dual drive (each wheel independently driven) deliver corrective steering to address excessive bridge binding and crane skewing issues. PRESCRIPTION Wheels help eliminate uneven wheel wear and reduce stress on other components.
Part of our PERFORMANCE PARTS™ line, PRESCRIPTION Wheels and Assemblies are available for all brands of cranes, surpassing the design requirements of the OEM.
