Konecranes is making its Uniton heavy-duty industrial overhead crane available to customers in the South East Asia Pacific region.

The system, which was showcased at the recent South East Asian Iron and Steel Institute (SEAISI) Conference in Manila, is said to be well-suited for users in the steel industry.

According to the manufacturer, the crane fetures a built-up trolley design, which is claimed to be user-friendly for service. Its modular configuration and straightforward assembly techniques "facilitate easy maintenance".

The Uniton cranes are available in a wide range of load and duty class options, hoisting speeds and lifting heights. It can lift from 6.3 to 160 tons with a single trolley and up to 320 tons with two trolleys.

Its inverter drives provide a "smooth lifting experience" and reduce wear on mechanical components and as an optional feature, Extended Speed Range (ESR) and ESR+ allow for higher lifting and lowering speeds.

With Uniton, we are providing them with a competitive crane that can be adapted to be just right for their specific operations. It offers a very competitive, heavy-duty solution without compromising quality.
