We will be launching our latest Tower Crane Flattop model MCT135 at Excon along with a live Tower Crane operation.
Our latest Tower Crane Flattop model MCT135 has a 60m jib length, an improved tip load of 1.5 tons, and an improved free-standing height of up to 50.9 m. This model is available in two versions: 6 tons and 8 tons. We will also be displaying a live Tower Crane operation unit at our stall on the ground level. This will have an operator cabin connected to all 3 mechanisms: Hoisting, Slewing and Trolley. Visitors can experience the live operation by climbing up the crane and getting a real feel of how cranes operate.

As part of our growth strategy, we have moved from hammer head models to flattop modular versions.
Our newly developed MCT135 will replace MC125 and offer a better model to the market. Its modular flattop design helps customer to save on installation and dismantling time. It simplifies storage and transportation of a tower crane by minimizing the number of loose components. Its LVF technology offers smooth operation and reduces running costs.

All our cranes are designed for a life of 20-30 years, and hence undergo extensive lifecycle testing at various design stages at our Manitowoc product verification center. We also provide training to operators, supervisors, and foremen at our full-fledged training center at our factory in Chakan, Pune.

Builders and contractors are looking for bigger cranes to cater to heavy loads and high-speed operations.
The Indian market is seeing a paradigm shift in the type of projects which are being launched, such as the increase in height of buildings. Our MCT135 is an ideal choice as it benefits customers with its improved free-standing height, better tip load, and better collar to collar distance in floor climbing version (BA45A). We have also introduced a new hoisting mechanism - 33LVFC 15 (6-ton) and 40LVFC 20-1(8-ton). The LVF drive provides better lifting speed and precise control.

Many of our institutional buyers have been associated with us for the past 30 years.
Many customers are still using the very old Potain cranes which were discontinued years ago. But we are still providing complete support and services to these customers. We have tied up with many rental partners across India and are offering our complete range of Potain cranes for rent through them. We are also in the process of developing exclusive Potain Rental Partners who will deal with only Potain brands.

We are offering developers and contractors, who are facing liquidity problems, options like renting, leasing, assured buyback of their machines, or refurbishments. All these plans are running successfully across all our global operations. We are in the process of developing a scheme for complete turn-key solutions (for renting, leasing, assured buyback and refurbished machines) to our customers in India either directly or through our channel partners.

Lean manufacturing and Industry 4.0 are transforming the manufacturing process and benefiting equipment buyers in many ways.
Lean manufacturing has introduced compact design of electrical control panel, continuous improvements, and waste elimination. Our lean manufacturing includes utilization of jigs and fixtures for manufacturing the structure parts. PLC has been introduced for trouble shooting and logic control of the electrical circuits. Benefits include elimination of breakdown through TPM methodology, and standardization of structure parts for interchangeability, fitments, and site applications.

The pandemic has taught us that we all need to develop and implement measures on how to make construction sites invincible in times of crisis.
We are all interdependent in the marketplace. Infrastructure and Real Estate construction cannot be completely stopped even in catastrophic situations. Construction sites are complex and can throw up multiple challenges as regards geographic location, territory, and availability of resources. These challenges can be avoided by having optimum mechanization and advanced construction technology.

The Tower Crane is an important part of mechanization in construction. Like all global construction sites, the tower crane is the first and last major equipment to get on and off the site. Normally, it can give a coverage of 110% for all lifting and shifting jobs at a construction site.
