TIL Launches New Crane, Crushing & Screening Solution
PIXEF is a first of its kind and versatile hydraulic mobile crane in pick-n-carry segment. PIXEF is a 15 T multitasking crane for Slew, Pick'n'Carry and Carry Deck applications.
TIL made an extensive research and found that Safety is a critical feature and of paramount importance for everyone associated with crane use. However it is not adequate in the currently available cranes in the 15 T category in Indian market. Many accidents occur in pick-n-carry crane segment due to the fact that the available cranes up to 15 T category are designed and built on tractor chassis causing serious risk of stability during load handling as well as exposing the operators into risk due to lack of safety devices and controls.
Therefore, besides leveraging TIL's pan Indian distribution network to capitalize the market opportunity in pick-n-carry segment that dominates the crane volume in India, the reason TIL decided to make a foray into this segment is to offer material handling customers a next generation pick-n-carry crane that stresses on safety, ease of operation and maintenance, application suitability and competitive total cost of ownership.
This new mobile crane model has a Microprocessor controlled safety system designed to keep all the operations safe and hassle free. The Microprocessor is fitted with interlocks which prevent machine misuse and abuse. The crane offers a unique carry on deck feature with 360 degree non-continuous slew and excellent pick and move capacity, high all round visibility and also comes with a standard fitment of a rear view camera. The carry deck has a capacity of 4 tonnes. The carry deck option allows the customers to use the equipment as a material transport solution up to 4 ton payload category at a project site optimizing on transportation cost besides decongesting the haul roads at project construction or mining sites. Torque converter power shift transmission, power steering with adjustable steering column and ergonomically positioned and adjustable driver's seat ensure driver comfort, lesser fatigue and higher productivity. These multitasking options - high adaptation to application requirement and demand, high safety standard make this piece of equipment versatile and unique in 15 t category.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Somnath Bhattacharjee, President, Material Handling Solutions and Equipment & Project Solutions business-TIL, said; "Launch of PIXEF-the versatile Pick–n-Carry crane epitomizing Safety, Productivity, Superior Technology and Performance, is a game changing initiative by TIL in the 15 Ton mobile crane segment."
