Konecranes SmartOn ‘crane with a brain’ is a module-based system of crane technology that provides customers great flexibility in adapting their equipment to the evolving needs of their operations.
It’s evolutionary design is based on significant improvements in crane technology in proven modular components and features. This means that the crane can easily be updated with smart solutions, such as automated positioning, extended speed range, defined working areas, maintenance monitoring or remote diagnostics, to meet changes in the customer’s business and process needs.
Industries that use SmartOn cranes – in capacities from 6.3 to 250 tonnes with single trolley and 500 tonnes with two trolleys – include paper, automotive, power, steel, general manufacturing, workshops, storage systems and mining.
Another advantage is it monitors its own condition and recommends when and what kinds of inspection or preventive maintenance should be performed – therefore better able to plan and minimise maintenance shutdowns.
Features include a tablet, which improves the user experience. The tablet makes crane operation easier and more productive as the operator receives crane and process related information directly to the tablet and is able to make adjustments to the crane. Optional camera views for safer and more effective load handling are also available and the tablet is connected wirelessly to the crane control system providing advanced crane condition data in real-time for the maintenance personnel.
