REL in association with M/s. TESCAR Srl, Italy, launched the "CF" series piling rigs at the recently concluded bC India in Mumbai. REL will target the emerging market for mini piling rigs and is confident of making a mark in this niche segment.
"There is a huge demand for piling rigs for small and medium pile diameters from 400mm to 750mm in many construction sites like commercial complex, power plants, SEZ etc. Today, piling contractors either depend on the big machines to do the job, which means higher cost by way of fuel, transportation and maintenance, or resort to the conventional methods, which means very low productivity. REL and TESCAR together will address this gap with their 'CF' series," said Mr. Sunil.
TESCAR range begins with the CF 2.5 which can be mounted on a variety of base machines and can do up to a depth of 15 Meters for pile diameters ranging from 400mm to 800mm. "The most popular in the CF 2.5 range is CF 2.5A, an 8Ton machine with 'Telescopic Mast' and on a 'Bobcat' base which is a sought after model world over due to its flexibility and also the ability to operate in very confined area with very low head room. TESCAR has a patent for their design of this telescopic masts informed Mr. Sunil.
TESCAR is also the leading manufacturer of tools including Kelly Bars, and supplies to every leading manufacturer of piling rigs in the world.
REL, Construction equipment Division offer a 'Full Liner' in concrete equipment with technical collaboration with leading German manufacturers.
"Every product from REL-CED stable has certain feature incomparable and offering value addition to clients in terms of productivity, saving in operating cost or additional safety features," Mr. Sunil continued.
The THP 45 D High pressure concrete pump launched in 2010 is already rated high by users due to its capability to pump up to even 100 meters vertical height at the same time giving a very good output.
REL also has expanded their own network to all four regions of the country and have currently 13 dealerships to provide after sales support to their range.
