Konecranes adds Wire Rope Monitoring to TRUCONNECT portfolio

TRUCONNECT ®Wire Rope Monitoring, the newest addition to Konecranes’ digital ecosystem, provides customers with real-time insight into the condition of a wire rope while avoiding shutdowns and operation interruptions. It supports Konecranes’ broader mission to provide smart technology and a digitally enabled customer experience to improve the safety, productivity and sustainability of operations.
 
Kukkola also noted the cost-saving benefits of Wire Rope Monitoring. When traditional magnetic non-destructive testing is performed to analyze the condition of the internal wires, a specialist has to perform the inspection and the crane has to be shut down for the day.

A strong focus on customers and commitment to business growth and continuous improvement make Konecranes a lifting industry leader. This is underpinned by investments in digitalization and technology, plus work to make material flows more efficient with solutions that decarbonize the economy and advance circularity and safety.
