A new grab crane KMG-5.0-16.5-12.0-A7 has been manufactured at the «Kyiv Crane Machinery Plant LLC» for the largest producer of glass containers in Ukraine.

The Customer was assigned to our team the task of designing and producing, in the shortest possible time, a grab crane, which is necessary for solving urgent problems of increasing productivity and efficiency at the glass container production site. Crane equipment was extremely necessary for loading enriched sand, dolomite, soda from the bins into the crushing chambers, where the glass charge was being prepared.

Having carefully studied the peculiarities of the technological process and the plan of the site where the new crane equipment should be operated, the designers of Kyiv Crane Machinery Plant LLC offered the most optimal variant of its design and configuration, and also developed a phased plan for the implementation of works.

The main characteristics of the grab crane:

  • lifting capacity - 5.0 tons;
  • lifting height - 12.0 m;
  • crane span - 16.5 m;
  • cargo lifting / lowering speed - 0...12 m/min;
