Finland's Konecranes, which specialises in the manufacture and service of cranes and lifting equipment for the ports and terminal industry, has announced the launch of three new lifting products that refresh its portfolio.

The additions to their portfolio include the innovative new S-series, which uses a synthetic rope to delivers enhanced lifting performance and longer-lasting use. S- and M-series cranes will offer real-time data and insight via the yourKONECRANES customer portal to improve usage visibility and help anticipate maintenance needs

“The launches reflect the strength and depth of our expanded portfolio following the MHPS acquisition, as well as our continued momentum in streamlining the number of product platforms we have, and they will bolster our market leadership in the years to come,” said Konecranes President and CEO Panu Routila.

“I’m especially proud of the innovative S-series crane, which sets us apart from the competition and has attracted strong interest from customers across a number of industries,” Routila added.

The S-, C- and M-series represent the next generation of Konecranes’ three existing industry benchmarks, bringing new technology and innovation to areas including motor drives, rope, reeving systems, and clutches and brakes to deliver safer equipment that performs better, lasts longer and delivers greater operational savings.

The new products also underscore Konecranes’ technology leadership. All new S- and M-series cranes will be equipped with sensors and the capability to collect and send data.  

These capabilities reflect Konecranes’ investment in the growing opportunities of data. The company has established a data science laboratory in Lyon, France, as part of its continuing drive to digitalize products, services, and operations.

Konecranes has 21,500 connected cranes across the world and digital life-cycle records from over 1.1 million customer assets.
