Manitowoc's lifting equipment for the global construction industry

bC India 2011
Manitowoc Cranes which has been recognized as one of the world's largest providers of lifting equipment for the global construction industry, including lattice-boom cranes, tower cranes, mobile telescopic cranes, and boom trucks, will exhibit its product range at bC India. The tradeshow will see Manitowoc cranes from its mobile and tower crane brands together with interactive displays and information about its range of products and services. Manitowoc is established as one of the leading crane manufacturers in India and is highlighting its market leadership in a series of innovative demonstration.

Mr. Raman Joshi, Managing Director of Manitowoc Cranes India, said the company is well-positioned in the country. "We have long seen the potential of India and have invested heavily in the country," he said. "We're now seeing our vision becoming a reality as the country starts harnessing its true potential. At bC India, we will increase awareness of our customer support activities which we run through our Manitowoc Crane Care brand. We will also show our latest cranes, each of which has features and benefits of interest to Indian customers."

The two cranes Manitowoc will show from its Potain tower crane brand are the MC 125 from the range of top-slewing cranes and the Igo 32 from the Potain range of self-erecting cranes.

The MC 125, combines a cost-effective lifting tool with industry-leading performance. The new crane will be produced at the Manitowoc factory in Pune, India as well as in Zhangjiagang, China and is perfect for a variety of city center and general building projects.

Maximum jib length on the MC 125 is 60m, 5m more than the MC 115 B, the crane it replaces in the Potain range. In its standard form, the crane has a choice of five possible jib lengths including the 60m maximum. It also has a maximum free-standing height of 44 m but can reach much higher by telescoping and tying off to structures. The crane's maximum capacity is 6t while at the 60 m jib end, it can still lift 1.15 t.

Assembly of the crane is facilitated by several designing innovations including a single-tie jib which can be assembled at ground level and lifted in a single piece. The 1.6 m x 1.6 m mast sections are pin-connected for safe and quick erection while other components are designed for lightweight handling or removal.

The mechanisms available for the crane include a double trolley that allows it to lift 3t when working with a single trolley or 6 t when working with both. Two versions of Potain's established 24 kW 33PC15 hoist are available with the crane.

The Igo 32 is part of Potain's range of self-erecting cranes which can offer significant time savings on small-and medium-sized job sites. They are often more cost effective than other material handling options. They can cover large areas of the job site and have powerful lifting capability allowing them to handle most loads needed on these projects. They also offer greater control than alternative lifting methods and give site managers greater peace of mind through their strength and reliability.

In addition to showing tower cranes and self-erecting cranes from its Potain brand, Manitowoc will also show a mobile crane. The exact model will be determined shortly before the show.

Apart from equipment, the booth will have a simulator where visitors can sit in a replica crane cab and experience what it's like to operate a Manitowoc crane. Next to the simulator will be a training room run by Manitowoc Crane Care with displays and information on the range of training courses offered by the customer support brand.
