Lin­den Co­mansa's CUBE cab for tower crane wins pres­ti­gious award

NBM&CW - - CONTENTS -

For tower crane op­er­a­tors, hav­ing a workspace that com­bines com­fort, pro­duc­tiv­ity and de­sign, is a boon. Man­u­fac­turer Lin­den Co­mansa’s CUBE cabin meets all these pa­ram­e­ters.

BigD, the Span­ish in­dus­trial de­sign stu­dio who con­ceived the cabin, de­cided to sub­mit the project to the pres­ti­gious iF Awards one of the world’s most im­por­tant awards for in­dus­trial prod­ucts de­sign. Lin­den Co­mansa’s com­mit­ment to im­prove the work­ing con­di­tions of the crane op­er­a­tor was the win­ner in the sec­tion on ve­hi­cles and au­to­mo­tive, which fit­ted best to tower cranes. The award was pre­sented in Mu­nich, Ger­many in 2017.

Ac­cord­ing to Al­berto Munár­riz, Lin­den Co­mansa’s Gen­eral Man­ager, the iF award rec­og­nizes the great work of BigD, which un­der­stood clearly the needs of the crane op­er­a­tor, to of­fer a pleas­ant work space with the great­est pos­si­ble com­fort. The CUBE cab has an in­no­va­tive aes­thetic de­sign, very dif­fer­ent from what the mar­ket of­fers, so far, and in­cludes all the tech­ni­cal re­quire­ments needed in a cabin as a fun­da­men­tal part of the crane.

Said Adrián Lar­ripa, CEO, BigD, "The CUBE cab is a small por­tion of the prod­uct tower crane, but it is its nerve cen­tre in the han­dling and con­trol of the loads. Thanks to a com­pre­hen­sive anal­y­sis of the ex­pe­ri­ence of use of the crane op­er­a­tor, we cre­ated a com­pletely user-cen­tric cab de­sign, pro­vid­ing huge com­fort and in­creas­ing the cab’s ca­pac­ity to im­ple­ment new crane func­tions that could arise for fu­ture needs. This project also led us to en­gage with sup­pli­ers to achieve these im­prove­ments with a rea­son­able im­pact on the cost of the cab."

The Lin­den Co­mansa cranes, like his one that is al­ready work­ing in Char­lotte, NC, USA, are be­ing de­liv­ered with the CUBE cab since Oc­to­ber 2017.

The jury ap­pre­ci­ated the per­fect com­bi­na­tion of com­fort, pro­duc­tiv­ity and de­sign of the CUBE cab, as well as the en­tire process, which lasted al­most two years.
