With the launch of the NX360o slew-cum-pick "n" carry crane, ACE presents the future of cranes in India. The dual-purpose NX360o slew crane with pick "n" carry duty is a boon for various jobs at compact spaces such as metro rail, bridges, flyovers and inside factories. Loaded with safety features such as safe load indicator (SLI) with cut-off, reverse camera, failure protection and safety breaks on hoists, it provides precise and easy handling as well as erection of jobs, and faster and seamless operations across rough terrain. The NX360o is a complete value for money product for the customers as it offers the advantage of two distinct operations at the price of one machine and 50 per cent lower operation and maintenance cost as compared with similar slew cranes.
The NX360o is conceptualised based on the current needs of customers. This can be used in loading, unloading, erection and placement of material at various project and construction sites such as industrial construction, refinery/petrochemical, railway/monorail, bridges/flyovers, power plant and in different industries such as chemical, power, fertilisers, cement, mining, CFS/ICD, fabrication, shipyards, defence, plywood, stone/granite, cable manufacturing and transmission towers.
