Air Technical Industries has introduced a mobile gantry crane for indoor/outdoor use. When used outdoors, the four telescopic legs raise the crane up to 30 feet high for stacking containers or other large items, lifting over them to maximize storage space, or for loading and unloading trucks. When used indoors, the Tele-Mast lowers the crane’s overall height for in-building applications.
It has a very narrow design to maximize usable span while maintaining a narrow overall width for passing through overhead doors.
The crane is diesel engine-powered and all actions are hydraulically actuated, including lift, propulsion, steering and optional cable lift. Controls are remote pendant with variable speeds up to 4 MPH. Tires are large cushion-type rubber, 16” wide and 28” OD for smooth and quiet operation. It is all heavy duty steel construction with a 3:1 safety factor for demanding industrial use.
The crane functions are user-friendly, as the operator can easily manipulate the fingertip controls to move large and heavy loads. The removable, umbilical pendant control station can be safely stored when not in use.
The crane comes in a variety of sizes and capacities which are customized to the user’s specific need. Standard models are offered in 25,000 and 60,000 pounds capacities with custom designs available up to 100,000 pounds.
