ElectroMech has extended its product line for the construction and material handling industry with the launch of single beam and mobile gantry cranes.
ElectroMech, a leading brand in engineering, manufacturing and servicing industrial overhead cranes, gantry cranes, electric wire rope hoists and customised material handling solutions, has launched a new line of mobile gantry cranes. A first for the Indian market, the new line encompasses rubber-tyred gantry cranes which will overcome the challenge of space availability on shop floors, offering tandem picks in a cost- effective manner. Dependable and versatile, mobile gantry cranes offer cost-effective lifting portability that can withstand the heaviest of loads. Easily assembled and dismantled, these can be used indoors or outdoors, whether mounted or mobile. ElectroMech will now supply various models along with adjustable heights and spans under the SL series that stand for lighter duty and limited flexibility and ISL series that stand for heavy duty and maximum flexibility. The gantries which can lift loads between 13 to 450 tonne can be successfully adapted across multiple industries including pre-fabricated concrete, steel, modular buildings and wind power generation equipment.
Says Tushar Mehendale, Managing Director, ElectroMech, “The Indian MHE industry is maturing fast and specialist lifting concepts are never far behind. Our customers have been asking for more dynamic and cost-effective hoisting solutions that demand technical innovations, and this is obviously a big step in that direction.” He adds, “This being a new product category, it is hard to ascertain the market size accurately. However, according to estimates, the total size during the first year is expected approximately to the tune of 100 units and ElectroMech aspires to capture a substantial chunk of this market.”
The new product line is the result of a new alliance ElectroMech has with Shuttlelift, a leading manufacturer of rubber-tyred gantry cranes. On the alliance, Mehendale says, “ElectroMech firmly believes in offering the latest and the best products and services to its clients. Our tie-up with a renowned company like Shuttlelift, one of the leading gantry crane manufacturers in the world, allows us to explore advanced technology solutions and helps our customers to get world-class solutions from a trusted partner. We are certain that our new cranes will give their owners quite an edge.”
Neil Calder, Regional Sales Manager, Shuttlelift states, “We are positive that our unique system designs and installation technology coupled with ElectroMech’s manu-facturing strength and strong distribution network will enable a tremendous growth opportunity.”
At the bC India expo, ElectroMech also showcased their expertise by displaying a fully functional 5MT gantry crane highlighting its applications for bridge building. The major attraction at the stall was a live demo of the crane and an interactive game for visitors. This helped the visitors equip themselves with product experience in an innovative and interesting manner. The visitors were enthralled with the Radio Remote Control Crane which was an ingenious blend of technology and player’s skill along with an entertainment aspect. This also gave the customers an opportunity to understand the fineness of motion and the precision of the cranes supplied by ElectroMech.
