Konecranes, a manufacturer and servicer of overhead lifting equipment, has introduced a lifting solution designed to maximize overall productivity in workstations and on production lines with lifting needs up to two tons.
The company says the XK Light Crane System is designed with modular components that provide efficiency, space and cost savings, as well as flexibility for any modern material handling need.
According to Koncranes, the modular design makes short installation time possible, thus increasing the uptime of the crane. Standard three-phase power feeding with a flat cable simplifies installation, provides consistent, reliable service, and is easily adaptable to reconfigurations, the company adds.
The system provides high structural strength and accurate, cut-to-length profile dimensions that maximize available space and help to lower overall costs. Koncranes says the system also require fewer supporting structures due to outstanding suspension distances.
The company also says the product also features a lightweight profile beam that reduces dead weight, thus minimizing stress on building structures that can lead to wear and tear and unnecessary repair costs. Additionally, the hollow profile type protects trolleys from dirt and dust, decreasing maintenance costs and increasing component lifetime. There are four profiles, ranging from 20 feet to 40 feet with varying lifting capacities depending on the model.
