Kalmar, part of the Cargotec Group, introduced Kalmar Rail Mounted Gantry (RMG) crane, a highly adaptable, automation-ready platform to the market.
“We are excited to put new focus on the intermodal market with our brand new RMG. In designing this product, we have leveraged our experience of over 40 years in rail-mounted cranes and over 20 years in port and terminal automation. We have delivered various cantilever RMGs to intermodal terminals since the 1970s, and today, Kalmar rubber tyred gantry cranes are commonly used in intermodal terminals, especially in Europe. With this new RMG, we were able to combine the best features of different types of equipment,” said Timo Alho, Vice President, Intelligent Crane Solutions, Kalmar.
According to the company, Kalmar RMGs can be tailored for customer-specific requirements, making them suitable for greenfield sites or to be fitted into an existing brownfield operation. The cranes can be combined with Kalmar Horizontal Transportation or Mobile Equipment to deliver a complete end-to-end solution for intermodal and container terminals. All Kalmar RMGs have electric drive units which are highly efficient, give exceptionally smooth operation and have zero emissions at source, the company said. Kalmar RMGs have a rail span of 20-55 m, a lifting capacity of up to 65 tonnes, an outreach of up to 18 m and can stack up to a height of 1 over 6.
