Automated RMG (ARMG) System

The automated handling of containers is the next step in the evolution of container crane technology that began with the introduction of containerized shipping in the 1960s. The Konecranes Automated RMG (ARMG) system offers valuable advantages in an ever-more automated industry. These advantages are being realized by leading container terminals around the world where Konecranes ARMG systems are hard at work.

Technology proven in the real world

The Konecranes ARMG crane design drew upon rail and yard conditions that are the daily reality in container terminals around the world, and brought in the proven technology of our Rubber Tired Gantry cranes. Konecranes ARMGs have a light, intelligent steel structure. When this is combined with our Active Load Control (ALC) technology, the cranes deliver fast, accurate container stacking over a range of real world conditions.

Hard-won experience

Konecranes can deliver a field-proven, complete ARMG system on time and within budget. We have an excellent track record of ARMG system project delivery, from the system design phase through to commissioning and hand-over.
