SM open winch crane

Precision and performance in a modern modular crane

Konecranes SM craneThe Konecranes SM crane is strength and safety built into a small package, a compact, high-capacity crane for accuracy in lifting up to 1,000 tons. Ideal when you need to move large and heavy loads in production spaces that are sometimes cramped or hard to access, it’s especially good for valuable or sensitive equipment that requires the utmost care.

Designed specially for the mechanical stresses of lifting—the gears, motors and controls are all made in-house, and these core components work together seamlessly for smooth crane movement and control. A unique combination of lifting power and smart design offers versatility in applications across all kinds of industrial settings.
