Smarton, Konecranes ’ new heavy-duty process cranes are designed as customized, intelligent, and environmentally sustainable lifting systems for demanding maintenance and heavy process use.

The high performance modular crane system, being introduced to Australia and New Zealand, is designed to maximise safety while minimising energy consumption and downtime.

Applications of Smarton cranes, in capacities initially up to 160 ton and progressively extending to 500, include steel and paper plants, automotive and general manufacturing, energy plants, waste-to-energy, automatic storage systems, workshops and mining and resources facilities.

The compact Smarton crane system can save building and building services costs by fitting into smaller structures. The compact design enables new industrial halls, for example, to be smaller than before, so the product pays back in the form of lower construction and heating expenses. The compact structure of Smarton also allows the user to put the load down much closer to the wall.

The result of 3.5 years of intensive development work, Smarton is an evolutionary, not revolutionary, technology that combines time-tested components with innovative refinements.

A key driver of the design is modularity, meaning that customers can select exactly the features they need for their process, both now and in the future. Thanks to standardized modules, products can be customized reliably and faster than ever before to suit the special needs of individual customer processes in widely differing fields of the process industry.

There is no need to equip Smarton with everything a user might expect to use in the future. The product can easily be updated with additional features, such as automated positioning, defined working areas, maintenance monitoring, or remote diagnostics. This is enabled by the crane’s intelligent control system based on programmable logic, which can be adjusted according to the control need.

Advantages of Smarton heavy-duty process cranes:

  • Saves space and energy
  • Minimizes maintenance shutdowns
  • Makes operations easy and efficient
