At Excon 2017, TIL showcased its expertise in material handling and road building solutions developed over decades, both in-house and by way of alliances with global technology leaders. The Company launched new cranes and a reach stacker, along with a heavy-duty 300 ton crane and a range of crushing and screening equipment, among other machines, on display.
Mobiload 315 pick-n-carry crane, the latest entrant from TIL, has a maximum capacity of 15 MT at 2.5m radius over front for pick-n-carry operations, and 8 MT at 2.5 m radius for 360° slew on-tyre duties. Its 4-section boom has an extended length upto 17m. The first 3 sections are fully powered and synchronized and the fourth is power-positioned. An optional 5-m jib extension allows for a total boom tip height of 24-m. Twin tyres on both front and rear ensure stable and strong on-rubber performance. Right hand front wheel drive and steer feature, and the rigid chassis design give the machine an automotive feel and unmatched mobility. Continuous 360° slew enables efficient load handling. The ergonomically designed single man cabin enables carriage of long items on the carry deck, subject to a maximum of 2 tons at a road speed of 15 km per hour. An electronic load moment indicator ensures safe operations. The engine is BS III CEV compliant.
Mr. Pinaki Niyogy, TIL, and (R) Mr. Rajesh Wazarkar, Hyster-Yale Lift Trucks India, speaking to the Press at the launch at Excon.
Commented Mr. Pinaki Niyogy, VP & Chief Technology Officer, at the launch, “Mobiload is a versatile pick–n-carry crane epitomizing productivity, superior technology and performance, and a game changing initiative by TIL in the 15-ton mobile crane segment. It is ideal for rental, construction, mining, shipping, oil refineries, heavy industries and engineering sectors.”
TIL’s RT 750, the latest addition to TIL’s comprehensive range of rough terrain cranes, has a maximum capacity of 50 MT at 2.5m radius with 360° slew on outriggers and 12 MT with 360° slew on tyres. The carrier has 4x4 wheel drive and 4-wheel steer. Stand-out feature is the 5-section formed boom with an extended length of 41.3m. Maximum boom tip height of 53.3m can be reached with an optional 10.1m lattice extension. The ergonomically designed, full-vision operator cabin provides fatigue-free operation and excellent visibility. The engine is BS III CEV compliant.
Mr. Niyogy said, “It may be recalled that TIL holds the distinction of rolling out the first indigenously manufactured rough terrain crane in India from its Kolkata factory. Rough terrain cranes from TIL are compact and highly maneuverable, which make them performance-worthy for rough applications. With RT 750, the company yet again demonstrates TIL’s manufacturing prowess.”
Another significant product introduced was the new Hyster-TIL® ReachStacker, which has been developed specifically to meet the demands of ports and other tough container handling applications. Said Rajesh Wazarkar, MD, Hyster-Yale Lift Trucks India, “The new Hyster TIL® RS 45 will set a standard in low cost of ownership, but without compromising on Hyster’s durability, toughness and intelligent design to deliver lower fuel consumption and longer tyre life.”
The new truck features a powerful Cummins QSL9 Stage IIIA engine/Tier-3 in combination with a Spicer off-highway TE-27 transmission. Hyster has developed technologies such as cooling on demand, load sensing hydraulics with Variable Displacement Pump (VDP) technology, automatic throttle-up, integrated power train and optional empty seat engine shutdown, which help to further reduce fuel consumption. The durable frame and boom have been developed using extensive analysis and testing with the RS 45-31CH model giving 45T in first row, 31T in the second row, and 15T in the third. The longer wheel base with 8 percent reduction in total weight results in extended tyre life. Developed to be the ‘work horse’ of applications focused on efficient everyday container handling, the truck will be available in two versions: RS 45-27 and RS 45-31.
Mr. Niyogy informed that local manufacturing of RS 45 will provide distinct competitive advantages to TIL’s customers by reducing delivery lead times and improving total cost of ownership. In addition, customers will be able to access doorstep aftermarket support through TIL’s pan-Indian distribution network.
