An Indonesian company has become one of the earliest adopters of the new Konecranes SMARTON intelligent crane in South East Asia.

Moly-Cop Indonesia, part of the ASX-listed Arrium Mining Consumables Division, produces high quality forged steel balls for applications such as ball mills in copper and gold concentrating plants. The company has installed the latest Konecranes SMARTON ‘crane with a brain’ featuring TRUCONNECT remote monitoring and reporting. The SMARTON crane at Moly-Cop Indonesia’s Cilegon plant also has some of Konecranes’ most advanced technologies, including smart features such as sway control and target positioning to make lifting safer and more efficient.

The 15t SMARTON crane featuring an additional magnetic lifter, is used for loading and unloading material, and is complemented by a 10/2.5t double girder CXT crane for lifting equipment and maintenance.

The SMARTON ‘crane with a brain’ maximises safety while minimising downtime. Designed as a robust crane with a compact footprint, SMARTON overhead cranes allow facilities to operate in smaller spaces than before, reducing construction costs and heating expenses.

Konecranes was able to meet the client’s requirements for safety, price and maintenance. Moly-Cop Indonesia decided to add the smart features to save time and money as well as to ensure efficiency, especially during peak delivery periods. The TRUCONNECT feature allows the client to optimise their maintenance schedule and ensure equipment availability all the time.

Moly-Cop Indonesia and Konecranes have been working together for just over one year at their new facility in Cilegon, where the highest priority is placed on safety. Konecranes’ crane has been able to meet the high safety standards at the client’s facility with its excellent safety features. Konecranes’ maintenance crew is also very fast to respond with certified technicians who comply with all safety standards and procedures.

Key features and benefits of Konecranes CXT cranes include individual hoist capacities up to 80 tons; complementary CXT wire rope hoists; assurance of industry benchmarked safety and ergonomics; easy and effective load handling; optimum dimensions for space-saving solutions with ability to operate closer to walls and lift loads higher; excellent hook approaches at both ends of the crane; minimal headroom requirement; and tandem operation further enhancing efficiency and utility.
