Haulotte reveals two new electric articulating booms: SIGMA 16 and SIGMA 16 PRO (SIGMA 46 and SIGMA 46 PRO in North America). As a genuine culmination of the group’s know-how, the new models incorporate Haulotte’s exclusive innovations and high-quality standards. They combine excellent performance with a high level of serviceability, and meet all requirements for working at heights up to 16 m (46 ft platform height). The versatile additions to the Haulotte family are designed for many indoor and even outdoor applications, such as industrial maintenance, finishing, renovation, cutting-edge industry or events.
The SIGMA 16 electric articulating booms offer best-in-class working; with their high up, over clearance and outreach, it is easy to overcome all obstacles to reach the most remote work areas. The jib with horizontal rotation ensures precise and safe approach without repositioning the machine. This additional movement flexibility enables operators to save precious time with manoeuvres and access areas that are not accessible with a regular jib.
SIGMA 16 booms answer the industry’s expectation in terms of efficiency due to its two simultaneous movements and its ultra-fast elevation speed (90 seconds to full height). Some applications require the use of multiple equipment. SIGMA 16 models can carry up to 230 kg of load and 2 operators without envelope restriction for maximum performance.
It operates indoors as well as outdoors, on all types of stabilized slab floors, due to its wide, solid, and notched tires and its high ground clearance (17 cm - 7 in). The homogeneous tilt (4° no matter the boom orientation) makes it easy to reach the work zone without machine repositioning and time lost.
They can work in confined spaces and operate without any risk of damaging the surrounding environment as the turret stays within the chassis footprint while rotating. Due to a compact footprint and narrow turning radius, operators can easily manoeuvre in the tightest of spaces.
SIGMA 16 fulfils all the criteria ensuring both driving and positioning precision. Asynchronous motors and proportional controls ensure smooth and fluid movements. Its booms can be equipped with both a front and lateral door for easy entry and a robust tool tray providing a large storage capacity. Driving safety is improved with the centered boom arm. For better safety and stability, the driving speed automatically adjusts during turns and on slopes.
The exclusive anti-entrapment system - Haulotte Activ’Shield Bar - is available on the SIGMA 16 models. In case of entrapment, the operator is pushed towards the bar integrated into the upper box cover, and the machine stops automatically. The Safety Gap allows a large clearance, preventing driver entrapment.
The integrated, high performance Haulotte Activ’Lighting System supports safe manoeuvres, especially in low light conditions. Ten low energy consumption LED spotlights light up the machine controls and surrounding areas for easy loading and unloading operations.
