New low-cost overhead crane launched

Konecranes recently launched a new economically-priced overhead crane, the CXT UNO. Developed to give small and medium-sized SMEs in southern Africa access to Konecranes’ proven technology, the CXT UNO is based on their existing CXT hoist, and delivers many of the industry-leading strengths of the CXT.

The CXT UNO combines a strong range of features based on a simpler set of components and technical solutions compared to existing CXT products. This straightforward design, together with easy access to spare parts, means that the CXT UNO is easy to maintain.

The reliable crane is designed for everyday lifting. By focusing on the essential features and core components, the product can be offered at a competitive price without compromising on quality.

The CXT UNO crane has a radio controller and it can lift up to 10 tonnes and has inverter-based bridge travelling, two-speed for trolley travelling and hoisting movements. It is sold and delivered as a predesigned package with a selection of functions and limited options.

“The CXT UNO is important for us in today’s market because it expands our product offering into a segment where we haven’t been present before,” says Knut Stewen, Director Africa and Managing Director, Konecranes South Africa.

He went on to say that “the CXT UNO offers customers in this category access to our quality and reliability at a very reasonable price in what we believe is an attractive and competitive overall package. We are very confident that it will be a very popular crane in southern Africa”.

Capable of lifting loads up to 10 tonnes up to 9m off the ground, the CXT UNO features a two-speed hoisting and travelling design with a fixed pendant controller, tagline festooning, compact single-girder construction, and can operate over spans of up to 20m.
