NEW RAIMONDI LR330 LUFFING JIB CRANE UNVEILED
Raimondi Cranes says the launch of its new luflng jib ,R 0 crane features a “breakthrough” in technology.
Following a presale process in January, the Italian manufacturer says the crane’s equilateral triangular jib design enables an array of set-ups for erectors.
Eng Domenico Ciano, technical director, Raimondi Cranes, said: “We’re proud to present a technologically advanced, superior performance luflng crane, fully European in manufacture, to the market. The ,R 0 is productive, durable, strong, and eflcient. As the magship crane of the new luflng range, we have incorporated a breakthrough equilateral triangular jib design to enhance several different aspects of the machine. Structurally optimised, this innovative layout allows for improved packaging and transportation, simpliles the construction phase, and reduces wind impact on the jib, thereby decreasing the out of service radius.”
The Raimondi ,R 0 is the newest luflng jib crane in the range with a maximum jib length of 0m and a maximum capacity of 18,000kg, with two falls and four falls conlgurations. At the maximum radius, it can lift , 00kg in Ultra-lift mode. SIX different jib length conlgurations, from 0m to 60m, satisfy all needs in terms of specilc jobsite conlgurations.
Raimondi, which is owned by the Dubai company KBW Investments, claims the ,R 0 enables crane operators to control and tailor the machine’s work to their preferences, thereby reducing jobsite stressors. Together with the new Raimondi safety control system, there is a signilcant advancement in performance and control of the ,R 0’s three movements.
“Crane operators can now choose between three different conlgurations, enabling a change in parameters related to the movement speeds and dynamic,” explained Ciano. “This functionality allows the operators to align the crane closer to their specilc needs. Further, to reduce pressure on the operator and simultaneously increase the overall level of onsite safety, the safety control system’s installed sensors monitor all the crane’s movements and monitor the load, supporting the operator as site hazards approach. Alerting the operator with alarms and direct intervention, the ,R 0 is both agile and intelligent.”
Ciano added that working at height has also been factored in with the crane’s simpliled installation and dismantling procedures.
The ,R 0 may also be equipped with three different hoisting winches: standard installed power of 80kw or the two falls conlguration with the more powerful 110kw, while the four falls conlguration has an installed power of 80kw. The rope capacities are respectively: 650m, 1,000m, and 980m, and all winches may be equipped with a secondary emergency brake.
