Austrian elastomer experts orders seven Konecranes

In August 2015, Konecranes received an order for seven industrial cranes from Austrian machine engineering company Maplan. The cranes will be delivered during the second quarter 2016 to Maplan’s new production facilities in Kottingbrunn, Austria.



Maplan is a leader in elastomer engineering, the company provides innovative and high-quality products using state-of-the-art technology to customers in elastomer processing. Maplan produces elastomer injection moulding machines that are used mainly in O-ring and sealing technologies, for example in automotive applications.



The seven ordered Konecranes cranes will be used for machine assembly 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 – 30t.



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 30t 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.
