Hiab launches two new features for loader cranes
Hiab, part of Cargotec, is launching two totally new features to ease crane installation and operation: HIAB FRAMEWORKSTM and Crane Tip Control. The world premiere of the new features will be in connection to the IAA Exhibition on 22-29 September in Hannover, Germany.
HIAB FRAMEWORKS(TM) is a modular system that provides for the customer a pre-manufactured, ready-to-install subframe that matches the chosen truck. The patented installation package offers a standardised solution for heavy crane sub-frames and is complete with pump, tanks and auxiliary stabilisers.
The new Crane Tip Control (CTC) software feature in Hiab's HiPro control system simplifies loader crane operation. With the CTC feature the crane operator controls the behaviour of the crane tip instead of each crane function (slewing, first boom, second boom, extensions). In effect the crane is controlled using only three levers - slewing, horizontal movement and vertical movement.
Hiab is the world's leading provider of on-road load handling equipment. Customer satisfaction is the first priority for us. Around 3,000 professionals at Hiab work to provide high-performance products and services that meet customer needs globally. Our product range includes HIAB loader cranes, JONSERED recycling and forestry cranes, LOGLIFT forestry cranes, MOFFETT truck-mounted forklifts and MULTILIFT demountables, as well as DEL, WALTCO and ZEPRO tail lifts.
Hiab is part of Cargotec. Cargotec's sales in 2015 totalled approximately EUR 3.7 billion and it employs over 11,000 people.
