How we can help you stay productive

Safety is always our number one priority and during this period of great uncertainty we are focused on the health and safety of our employees and their families, our customers, and the communities we operate in.

Konecranes is fully committed to supporting the business continuity of our customers, some of which are playing critical roles in ensuring the uninterrupted flow of essential goods such as food and medical supplies. We are constantly monitoring developments and carefully planning our operations to mitigate the pandemic’s impact where possible.

We’ve put together some information on our digital tools for when you are working remotely, tools to help you figure out what crane to buy for your process, and things you can do if your production has increased or changed.

Automation in Paper Industry
How we help our customers

Supporting a Finnish Paper industry customer

The customer asked Konecranes service for support on how they could keep their production going without interruptions during the COVID situation.

We proposed a plan that included detailed instruction on how daily work should be carried out and what safety precautions would take place. The service technicians that were already working at the facility were permitted to continue the work and a 24/7 stand-by team was put in place. The stand-by team goes through the risk assessment on a daily basis.

The factory manager accepted the proposal and was very pleased with Konecranes prompt and professional response in this difficult situation.

Things to consider for the future

Automation improves productivity and cost efficiency image

Automation

Automated overhead cranes can reduce labor costs, track inventory, optimize storage, reduce damage, increase productivity and reduce the capital expense associated with forklift systems.

Smart features image

Smart Features

Smart Features are Konecranes-designed add-ons that work together or individually to improve safety and cycle time. These features assist the operator in controlling the crane by performing certain repetitive actions or compensating for misalignment and erratic movements.

TRUCONNECT Retrofit for Demag cranes

Retrofits

Retrofits are a relatively easy and economical way to add current productivity-enhancing features and technologies to a crane.

Modernizations

When production ramps up or changes, a crane may need a modernization to maintain productivity.

Idle cranes

If you have a crane that will be idle for a month or more, your local regulations may require that you have inspections performed before you start using that crane again.
