Comansa CM has launched the new luffing-jib crane CML165, with maximum load capacity of 12 tonne and 50-m reach. This new model is Comansa CM’s first addition to the CML Series, the factory’s luffing-jib family, which was created in late 2016 with the launch of the CML190 crane.
The CML165 features a 45 kW standard hoist mechanism that achieves maximum speeds of up to 94 m per min and a drum with capacity for 545 m of rope, allowing the crane to work in projects of up to 270 m in height. With the optional 65 kW winch that features a larger wire rope drum, this new model can build towers of almost 400 m in height, working with hoist speeds of up to 131 m per min.
The new crane also features one of the shortest counter jibs in the market, only 6.5 m long, and an out of service radius of 19-22 m (depends on the jib length). These two characteristics make the CML165 a perfect solution in narrow sites or projects with space restrictions due to buildings and other cranes or due to regulations.
“We expect this new crane to be very successful in Asia and the Middle East due to the increasing construction demand in large cities,” says Andy Huang, Sales Manager at Comansa CM. “Luffing-jib cranes are the best solution in congested sites and the CML165 is a great option for all type of edifications including high rise buildings, which are becoming more and more popular in the region. We have already informed some of our customers about this new model and the news is receiving a warm welcome from countries such as Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam, India, etc,” adds Huang. The new model will be available from September 2017 in Asia, the Middle East and South America.
