Raimondi Cranes SpA has announced a transformative approach to heavy lifting technology, the luffing jib LR330. Showcased to Raimondi’s exclusive agent network ahead of wider release, the LR330 luffing jib crane will officially begin shipping in March to fulfill agent presell orders, and is now available for wider purchasing.
“Raimondi has realised our value proposition through research, trials and finally, development. We’re proud to present a technologically advanced, superior performance luffing crane, fully European in manufacture, to the market,” said Eng. Domenico Ciano, Technical Director, Raimondi Cranes. “The LR330 is productive, durable, strong and efficient. As the flagship crane of the new luffing range, we have incorporated a breakthrough equilateral triangular jib design to enhance several different aspects of the machine. Structurally optimised, this innovative layout allows for improved packaging and transportation, simplifies the construction phase, and reduces wind impact on the jib, thereby decreasing the out of service radius,” explained Ciano.
The Raimondi LR330 is the newest luffing jib crane in the range with a maximum jib length of 60 m and a maximum capacity of 18,000 kg, with two falls and four falls configurations. At the maximum radius, it can lift 3,300 kg in Ultra-lift mode. Six different jib length configurations, from 30 m to 60 m, satisfy all needs in terms of specific jobsite configurations. The LR330 may be equipped with three different hoisting winches: standard installed power of 80 kW or the two falls configuration with the more powerful 110 kW, while the four falls configuration has an installed power of 80 kW. The rope capacities are respectively: 650 m, 1,000 m, and 980 m, and all winches may be equipped with a secondary emergency brake.
Raimondi’s newest luffing crane follows the October 2017 launch of the MRT234 flattop tower crane, boasting the optimal match of mechanical, structural and electronic control design, allowing for increased productivity, safety, and better user-interface.
