Terex Cranes re­ports dra­matic ca­pac­ity in­crease with Boom Booster Kit

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

Terex Cranes Ger­many wanted to cre­ate a new boom sys­tem that could be retro­fit­ted onto ex­ist­ing crane mod­els and elim­i­nate the need to buy an en­tirely new, larger crane. In­tro­duc­ing The Boom Booster, a highly in­no­va­tive de­sign un­like any other boom sys­tem on the mar­ket, be­lieves the Ger­man com­pany. It was de­vel­oped with­out the need for ad­di­tional re­in­force­ments on the base crane and is easy to as­sem­ble. Setup of such a sys­tem takes about two days and is easy to trans­port – like chip tun­ing a car, which in­stantly in­creases the per­for­mance ex­plains Har­ald Riedinger, Di­rec­tor Tech­nol­ogy and In­no­va­tion. The Terex Boom Booster is an add-on boom struc­ture that can al­most dou­ble the ef­fi­ciency in steep and long boom con­fig­u­ra­tions of our CC 8800-1 crane model.

It can be par­tially or com­pletely dis­as­sem­bled, de­pend­ing on the spe­cific road trans­porta­tion reg­u­la­tions, thanks to the pin bolt struc­ture. It fits in stan­dard 40 feet open-top con­tain­ers lead­ing to im­proved han­dling and trans­porta­tion func­tion­al­ity with bet­ter util­i­sa­tion of stan­dard means of trans­port, and fewer trucks, which de­creases fuel consumption.

The Boom Booster utilises a va­ri­ety of high-strength steels for com­po­nents like the trusses, tube mem­bers and bolted joints, in­clud­ing Strenx 700MC, 770QL and 960QL, Strenx 700 pro­files and SSAB Domex 460NL.

The kit is built up of two 11m adapters and five in­ter­sec­tion parts that are 10m long. When com­pletely as­sem­bled, the add-on boom length is 72m. With the boom booster at­tach­ment, a to­tal height of 156 m and 234 m with a jib con­fig­u­ra­tion can be eas­ily re­alised.
