Konecranes to deliver cranes to Maplan

December 2015

Seven Konecranes industrial cranes, ordered by Austrian machine engineering company Maplan, are to be delivered during the second quarter of 2016 at the company’s production facilities in Kotingbrunn, Austria.

Maplan is the quality and technology leader in elastomer engineering.

The seven ordered Konecranes cranes will be used for machine assembling in the manufacturing line. The cranes, of which two are single girder, three are double girder, and two wall travelling cranes, will have a lifting capacity ranging from 0.5-30 tons.

According to Konecranes, they will be equipped with different kinds of advanced features. Two of the CXT hoists are in tandem use, meaning that they can be operated at the same time with one remote control. The tandem solution enables safe and easy load handling. In addition, there is a load display for the 30-ton CXT crane, which helps to control the load weight before lifting and offers increased safety.

To optimise crane usage, Konecranes will also provide training for the crane operators immediately after the compliance tests from the authorities. The agreement includes a maintenance contract for the new Konecranes cranes and also for other existing equipment.
