Higher-Duty Overhead Crane
Konecranes, Springfield, Ohio, introduced UNITON, a robust overhead crane that can be tailored for unique lifting applications.
Using a rugged construction concept with multiple trolley configurations, including Konecranes Core of Lifting (motor, gearbox and control system), UNITON boasts standard features such a fabricated box end trucks with 90-degree MCB-type bearing housings and a 2-point drum suspension, which inhibits deflections of the rope drum from causing misalignment in the connection between the drum and gearbox.
UNITON cranes come in a wide range of load options, hoisting speeds, lift heights, trolley gauges, frame sizes and capacities, from 6.3 to 160 tons with a single trolley and up to 320 tons with two trolleys. Optional load control features include sway control, inching, microspeed, hoist synchronization and tandem drive, which links the actions of two cranes.
