Tower crane manufacturer Comansa's stand F5803 in the Festival Grounds outdoors area is showcasing its LCL310 luffing-jib crane
, specifically its 18-ton maximum load version. Its maximum jib length is 60 metres, and the different configurations allow for maximum jib steps every 5m. This luffing-jib crane, with its compact design and reduced out of service radius, is ideal for use in cities and in congested building sites.
Comansa is also exhibiting the CUBE cab, winner of the prestigious iF prize in 2018, which comes as standard in most of Comansa's cranes. It combines a new design, comfort and maximum productivity, as well as innovative advantages in terms of ergonomics and features.
Comansa is also promoting the latest versions of its cranes developed over the last year, especially its new 21LC1050 and 21LC1400 models, with maximum load capacities of up to 50 and 66 tons, respectively, which will improve productivity and enhance options in a market that is focussed on large flat-top tower cranes.

Similarly, the new Quick Set system introduced is a new technology designed to simplify the commissioning of cranes. With Quick Set, the set up and calibration times have been significantly reduced using a system that leads to easier, safer and more intuitive adjustments, achieving faster and less labour-intensive calibration. This smart development is the result of so much experience gained over the years and is readily available across the entire 21LC range and, during 2020, it will be expanded to the 11LC and 16LC ranges.
This new edition in 2020 will be the sixth consecutive time that Comansa has exhibited at ConExpo. Comansa has a local presence since 2002, providing sales, after-sales, engineering and training services in Northern America. Its American Headquarters is located in Pineville, near Charlotte, North Carolina, where it also has a large warehouse to house components and spare parts, as well as technical training rooms for better customer service, and has subsidiaries in Washington and Texas.
