The Industrial crane division of Konecranes UK is now commencing delivery of its contract to supply several cranes to operate in Siemens’ new manufacturing and refurbishment facility at Teal Park, situated on Lincoln’s bypass.
Konecranes is supplying four 20t CXTD cranes at 22.5mt span, a 3.2t CXTD at 22.5mt span with twin 3.2t trolleys, four CXTS models at 22.5mt span, one 5t CXTS model at 22.5m span and a 5t CXTD model at 22.5m span which will have 2 x 5t trolleys operating in tandem on the same bridge.
All are fitted with Konecranes state-of-the-art technology, including Konecranes DynAMove/DynADrive inverter variable speed control on cross and long travel motions and DynAHoist variable speed control on some of the hoists. Other features include Konecranes Remox Radio control, festoon cross crane cables, upper and lower limit switches, anti-collision between cranes on the same track, end of travel limit switches and cross traverse limit switches.
Also Konecranes ControlPro condition monitoring units are fitted to each hoist, the performance control unit that can extend the crane’s life, enhance performance and safety, ensuring that maintenance requirements are scheduled to suit actual usage, and unscheduled shutdowns are avoided. Cranes with double hoists also have load summation between hoists to ensure the combined hoist load on the crane as a whole does not exceed the capacity of the crane.
