Raimondi to Showcase Three Cranes at Bauma 2019

March 14, 2019 – Raimondi Cranes SpA, Legnano, Milan, Italy, will showcase three cranes in stand FS 1102/2 at Bauma 2019. All will be available in North America.

Raimondi’s full senior management team and all of the company’s official agents will welcome visitors on site for the duration of the event.  

One of the three cranes Raimondi will display is its first-ever hydraulic luffing LRH174, launched in 2018.   

The LRH174 will be positioned alongside Raimondi’s newest luffing and flattop tower crane models.

The LRH174, a 10-tonne (11 U.S.-ton) hydraulic luffer, has a tip load of 2,225 kg  (4,905 lbs.) in Ultra-lift mode with two falls. The crane can also be used with one fall, which allows 5-tonne (5.5-U.S.-ton) maximum capacity and a tip load of 2,476 kg (5,459 lbs.). 

“We are pleased to present the LRH174 at Bauma this year. While there are several LRH174s currently at work in both England and in Australia, we haven’t yet had the opportunity to properly acquaint our global customers with Raimondi’s premier hydraulic luffer,” said Eng. Mauro Masetti, chief commercial officer, Raimondi Cranes.

“We felt that showing this product, with its reduced out of service radius of only 10 meters (32.8’) was the ideal complement to our two newest products in the lineup never before shown to the public.” Masetti added that a traditional luffing-jib crane requires at least double the radius of the LRH174’s out of service radius, one of the crane’s most attractive features.

Raimondi Chief Operations Officer, Eng. Domenico Ciano, added that the LRH174 is much easier to install than traditional luffers. The crane’s lack of an A-frame and tie rods makes installation more similar to that of flattop tower cranes.  

“The jib is assembled at ground level in only one lift, so that the assembled jib and hoisting winch may be raised. Preparation of the jib, hoisting winch, and rope reeving are all completed at ground level, reducing work at height requirements, while the hydraulic system provides end users with smooth and speedy luffing movement,” he said.  

“We have impressive numbers to share for the LRH174: Raising the jib to 85° takes only 1.8 minutes due to the crane’s powerful hydraulic unit. In addition, this luffer houses the new generation Raimondi safety control system,” continued Ciano.  

Fully electronic with redundant sensors, Raimondi’s system lets the crane operate at the safest possible levels. Its capabilities exceed existing heavy lifting machinery industry standards, Ciano explained.  

“I am pleased to confirm that Raimondi will also unveil its two newest products at Bauma 2019, a luffing jib crane and a flattop tower crane. We are extremely excited to communicate about our two newest models that will be erected at our Bauma stand. We will be sharing information soon on what our visitors can expect to see in these cranes, including the technical advancements and the design engineering applied to Raimondi’s 2019 releases,” concluded Masetti.
