Sichuan Jincheng-Bauma China 200812 September 2008
A 260tm luffing-jib tower crane is on show. The new JCD260 luffing tower crane fills the national market gap of luffing tower crane with 60m jib and load moment between 250tm-300tm, says the company, which adds that it has made great efforts to develop luffing-jib tower cranes since 2006.
It can be mounted to climb inside a building, rail-mounted or placed in a static mounting.
Sichuan Jincheng Construction Machinery Co's top-slewing and topless tower crane ranges go from 63tm to 900tm.
The crane is claimed to be China's first with moving counterweight. The crane is equipped with a frequency control system to smooth crane motions. The crane safety device has real-time monitoring, fault diagnosis and early warning. An cabin-mounted LCD touch monitor can display the working load, allowed load, height, jib radius and wind speed.
The company has applied for patents for its duplex luffing system and integrated electric control cabin technology.
