Gemini recently organised a specially curated event ‘The AWP Junction’ aimed at sharing its products and services with the rapidly growing aerial work platform (AWP) market of India. The company showcased new and unique AWP applications developed specifically for the Indian market. The products featured comply with the safety standards and adhere to both Indian and European norms for manufacturing. Along with this, Gemini showcased its enhancements in service capabilities.
It unveiled the specially designed ‘van mounted’ and ‘pick-up’ mounted applications targeted primarily at the street furniture maintenance. Gemini sold two of their pick-up chassis mounted units during the event itself.
These units have specially designed booms, made of an aluminium alloy, making it super lightweight. Not only are they lightweight, but the boom does not require any special greasing or nylon padding for safe and smooth operations. These units can perform all operations without the need of stabilisers. They have been tested for safety, both statically and dynamically with 25 per cent more carrying capacity and yet do not need stabilisers for operations, the company says. The standard kit is CE certified and is equipped with features such as: tilt sensor, load sensor, ground andbasket control operations, emergency back up battery and manual operations for safe lowering in case of failure. These units are further customisable as per the requirement of the end user.
The van mounted machine is specially designed to work in cities where there are space constrictions and limited window of time to perform maintenance operations.
The pick-up mounted chassis is designed to work in tight and restricted areas, with minimal lane occupancy and tail swing.
