Konecranes has a relationship with the pulp, paper and wood industries that reaches back to the 1920s. Our offering covers lifting equipment and service for every phase of production. Lift trucks are a very strong part of our offering for these industries.

Adapted to the job

What kind of wood or paper product do you need to handle? We offer a complete range of lift trucks, fork and carriage combinations, fork and shaft systems, paper bale clamps, paper roll clamps, and attachments based on a quick-change system. We’ll provide the right lift truck and attachments for the work you need to do.

Reducing paper roll damage

Working closely with leading pulp and paper companies, we have developed a unique system to improve the handling of paper rolls.  A programmable microprocessor is at the heart of the system. Sensors collect key operating information, and the information is sent to the display in the cabin. The system reduces damage to the paper rolls with functions such as automatic opening of the paper clamp attachment when the roll touches the ground, and automatic prevention of lift truck movement until the rolls are off the ground.

And service

To keep your lift trucks performing at their best, we offer technical support, maintenance, safety training, and genuine Konecranes parts. Contact us to obtain the best possible lift truck, with full support, for your wood or pulp & paper operation!
