Comansa has announced improvements across its entire 11LC range, with expansion into the 16LC to follow. These include enhanced ergonomics thanks to new and simplified accessing elements – not only to the cathead, but also to the jib sections for easy access to the trolley. A new single trolley is now available as an option which features a manual single-double reeving change by the operator directly from the ground.
New drives in the hoisting winch and trolley give new linear movements thanks to attached potentiometers. That makes it possible to easily move and precisely position sensitive loads. In addition to this, a new version of the 18kW hoist mechanism has been added to the 6-ton versions, requiring less power supply while maintaining drum capacity and speed features.
The Power Lift system comes as standard, improving the load diagram by 10% at reduced speeds. Optional 24 and 37kW hoist motors feature the Effi-Plus system, which increases the hoisting and lowering speeds for light loads without increasing power or consumption.
Another significant innovation is the new “M” sized CUBE cab together with a resized and redesigned platform for an easier erection and maintenance. The fully glazed front of the cab allows a complete view of the load and the work area, therefore maximising performance. The improved positioning of the seat and body posture are designed for crane operator comfort.
The Quick Set system, already available in the 21LC series, has been introduced in the 11LC family as an option. This technology is designed to simplify the commissioning of cranes. With Quick Set, the set up and calibration times have been significantly reduced using a system that leads to easier, safer and more intuitive adjustments, achieving faster and less labour-intensive calibration.
Comansa continues to offer the 11LC90, 11LC132, 11LC150 and 11LC160, adding a new 6-ton version of the 11LC150.
