Konecranes unveils new rope guide

September 2018

Kone Corporation, a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, has introduced a new rope guide for the Middle East, which is a convenient, high-quality 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. The lightweight and durable rope guide is made from metal which enables it to withstand extreme applications and environments. Its rigid construction makes it suitable to be used as a replacement part for hoists in various industries including construction, infrastructure, cement or process industries, regardless of the hoist brand, says the company.

 The guide can be made to suit a wide range of drum sizes 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.

The new rope guide is available through the Konecranes Middle East Distribution Centre in Dubai, UAE, which provides full support to customers with fast turnaround times for queries and orders.

 “This is a high-quality product which can help extend the service life by reducing the wear of the rope drum and the guide itself. It is also quite simple and fast to be installed. In minutes, it’s ready for use,” remarks David Paul, the Konecranes service manager for the UAE.

The highly-trained spare parts team offers assistance in identifying the right parts. The Middle East Parts Distribution Centre has high availability of parts in stock, which has resulted in a significant increase in delivery punctuality.
