TADANO Breaking New Ground with an 8-axle Without a Boom Suspension System

Tadano Faun GmbH president Alexander Knecht and TFG project manager Andreas Hoffmann
Tadano Faun GmbH president Alexander Knecht and TFG project manager Andreas Hoffmann

A new, large All-Terrain crane with the revolutionary Triple-Boom System embodies the transformative process that TADANO is continuing in 2015. The new 8-axle in proven TADANO quality is the first large All-Terrain crane without a boom suspension system.

Reliability through avoidance of highly complex technologies – this is how Project Manager Andreas Hoffmann describes the approach for the development of the new Triple-Boom System. Conventional boom suspensions have always been complex and expensive in logistics, rigging, and operation. This is why Andreas Hofmann and his development team made a concerted effort to change their perspective and think outside the box. This was a challenge for him and his engineers that kept everyone thinking, even during off hours. Finally, the concept was clear: In order to relieve the customers of the disadvantages of a traditional boom suspension system, there was only one answer: discard it completely. The result is called the Triple-Boom System, a completely new kind of telescoping boom that requires no boom suspension system because of its very high stiffness.

Imagine a work environment where smart vests can communicate with aerial work platforms (AWPs) to warn operators that their harness lanyards are not connected to the anchor points. Or picture a world where smart machines equipped with sensors can contribute to collision avoidance and detection.

The 250-strong audience at the IPAF Summit on March 26th in Washington, DC, USA, got a glimpse of how the technology explosion can be used to enhance safety. Keynote speaker Frank Nerenhausen, president of JLG, showed how wearables, augmented reality and remote operation could be harnessed in a powerful system of prevention and control.

Manitowoc Launches New Best-In-Class Grove GMK5250L

Manitowoc has announced a new Grove all-terrain crane for the global market and as with other Grove launches of recent years it offers several unique innovations and class-leading capabilities. The 250 t capacity Grove GMK5250L has the strongest reach and load chart of any five-axle crane. It also offers the best maneuverability and class-leading driver comfort, which it delivers thanks to its inclusion of a VIAB turbo clutch and integrated retarder – the first ever mobile crane to feature the system.

The VIAB turbo clutch module eliminates both fluid overheating and clutch burning, while enabling wear-free starting and braking. It also contributes to fuel savings and on the GMK5250L fuel consumption is estimated at approximately 30% below that of its predecessor, the GMK5220.

Stellar Industries Introduces New T-Boom Style Hydraulic Cranes

Stellar Industries, Inc. has announced its new line of hydraulic cranes, called the TC Series. The TC Series offers a combination of compact European design with an American approach to sensible crane control. The TC Series is a tall mast telescopic crane commonly referred to as a “T-Boom” crane. This design offers ultimate compactness to take up minimal bed space, yet offers up to 18.6 feet of hydraulic reach to maximize the load radius of the larger models.

This style of crane has historically operated with a manual control valve requiring the operator to be near or under a suspended load. Stellar has incorporated the use of its proprietary Stellar CDTcrane control system which operates with a handheld proportional radio remote transmitter. This will allow the operator to better position themselves around the load and their work area. In addition to the remote operation, another new feature to this line is the operator feedback system. The Stellar CDT crane control system will alert the operator of the percentage of load the crane is currently lifting using a series of lights and vibrating pulses in the handled unit.
