Raimondi to reveal luffing, flattop cranes at Bauma 2019 in Germany
New cranes will be exhibited alongside the LRH174, Raimondi's first luffing hydraulic crane that was launched in 2018
Raimondi Cranes, an Italy-based company that in 2014 was acquired by KBW Investments, will showcase the LRH174 luffer, and a new luffing and flattop crane each, at the upcoming Bauma 2019 exhibition, which will be held at Messe München Trade Fair Center, Germany, on 8-14 April.
The LRH174 model is Raimondi's first luffing hydraulic crane, and was launched in 2018. The 10-tonne (t) hydraulic luffer has a tip load of 2,225kg in ‘ultra-lift’ mode in two falls. The machine can also be used in one fall with a maximum capacity of 5t and 2,476kg in tip load.
Raimondi’s chief operations officer, Eng Domenico Ciano, said the LRH174’s installation process is similar to that of flattops, since the machine does not feature A-frames and tie rods traditionally used in luffers.
Jib assembly takes place at the ground level in a single lift. The preparation of the jib, the hoisting winch, and rope reeving are also all completed at the ground floor to reduce time worked at height.
Ciano said that raising the jib to 85° takes 1.8 minutes, supported by “the powerful hydraulic unit installed in the crane”. Also included in the LRH174 is the updated Raimondi safety control system, which Ciano said is designed to “exceed existing heavy lifting machinery industry standards”.
Eng Mauro Masetti, chief commercial officer at Raimondi Cranes, said Bauma 2019 would provide a platform to expand the global reach of the LRH174, many units of which are already deployed for projects in England and Australia.
“We felt that showing this product, with its reduced out-of-service radius of only 10m, was the ideal complement to our two newest products in the line-up never before shown to the public” Masetti continued.
Ciano said additional information about Raimondi’s two new launches, “including the technical advancements and the design engineering applied to” the machines, will be revealed in due course.
Raimondi’s exhibit will be situated at FS 1102/2 within Messe München Trade Fair Center’s outdoor area.
