Konecranes launches new BOXHUNTER

BOXHUNTER operating concept is based on advanced video and laser technology that Konecranes has developed for its top-of-the-line Automated Stacking Cranes (ASCs)
 After several studies, and backed by a thorough understanding of customer needs, Konecranes launched the BOXHUNTER and reinvented the RTG crane.
“We are very pleased to announce the launch of the BOXHUNTER and are very much looking forward to offering this innovative crane to our customers in India”, says Nitin Erande, Port Cranes & Lifttrucks AGM Konecranes India. “We are confident that this outstanding container crane which is an excellent value for money, will meet the needs of our clients”, he adds.
BOXHUNTER is outcome of an intense product development effort that reinvented the Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) crane. The BOXHUNTER operating concept is based on advanced video and laser technology that Konecranes has developed for its top-of-the-line Automated Stacking Cranes (ASCs). Video cameras located at strategic points around the crane and a sophisticated Graphical User Interface in the cab gives operator excellent visibility everywhere he needs it.
BOXHUNTER is built around the needs of container terminal operators who want the best but do not need all the features or peak performance of Konecranes’ top-of-the-range 16-wheel RTG. BOXHUNTER maintains a steady level of performance, around 15-plus container movements an hour, while still offering the high reliability and low downtime that lie at the heart of the Konecranes philosophy and brand.
Turning things on their headThe new BOXHUNTER is built around the operator and the Graphical User Interface operator works with. Main idea was to turn things on their head, literally, and bring operator down to ground level. With sophisticated video and laser technology which is currently available, it’s no longer essential to have the cab at the top of the crane. While bringing the cab down, hoisting machinery was also relocated down to ground level. This simplifies the overall structure and brings a new ease of access to this machinery, which is great from service perspective.
 BOXHUNTER also has a new counterweight system that eliminates weight of spreader from every load lifted, thus saving energy.
Standard RTG A simpler structure brings valuable savings to customer across the board. BOXHUNTER is the most modular and standard RTG ever, offered with a minimum of customizable options. It is delivered in containers, by regular container ship.
As with all Konecranes container cranes, BOXHUNTER can be equipped with extra operator-aiding, safety-enhancing features such as DGPS Auto steering, TRUCONNECT, Konecranes remote monitoring services.
