Konecranes designs new universal rope guide


Konecranes has introduced a rope guide that is a convenient, high-quality, low-cost replacement for almost any brand of rope guide, whether Konecranes or other make.

The universal and patented design allows for a range of drum diameter with fast installation and high-value performance. Roller wheels provide smooth transition movement, which can reduce drum wear.

It is now available for sub-Saharan Africa directly at the Konecranes Parts Distribution Centre in Johannesburg.

“We aim for a 24-hour turnaround for all our spare parts,” said John MacDonald, Service, Sales and Marketing Director, Konecranes Southern Africa.

The rope guide is lightweight and durable, and installs quickly and easily with no special tools required. It is exceptionally rigid and able to withstand extreme applications and environments.

The roller wheels provide smooth transition movement, which can extend service life by reducing the wear of the rope drum and the guide itself.

The guide comes in a number of different sizes and can be adjusted to suit a wide range of drum size and any drum pitch direction, and its modular design allows for installation of devices for new features, such as drum cleaning, side-pull prevention and rope measuring.

A rope guide for a certain drum diameter can be configured to fit different hoist applications and construction.
