IMT Introduces New Models


Iowa Mold Tooling Co., Inc. introduces new 40 tm and 50 tm models to its lineup of truck-mounted articulating cranes. Featuring excellent lift-to-weight ratios, long-reach capabilities and minimized space requirements, the cranes provide customers with powerful, flexible new options to meet their specific application needs.

The 40/275 crane provides a maximum lifting capacity of 8,630 kg, while the 50/345 model delivers a maximum lifting capacity of 10,360 kg. The 40/275 and 50/345 models can be equipped with up to 8 hydraulic extensions for maximum horizontal reaches of 21.3 m and 21.4 m, respectively. The minimized dimensions and lower weight of these cranes allow for additional truck configuration possibilities and increased payload.

The 40/275 and 50/345 models feature ultra-high tensile steel that provides lower weight, high lift capacity at long reaches and increased payload capabilities. The mounting space required has been reduced to 1,148 mm and 1,198 mm, respectively, expanding truck configuration possibilities.

The 40/275 and 50/345 cranes feature a dual power plus link arm system (DL), which is well suited for long reaches and lifting in high positions with demanding equipment (such as fly-jib and winch). In addition, the DL system provides precise and regular movements in the entire working area while offering the best lifting capacities under almost any working conditions.

Another feature of the 40/275 and 50/345 models is “over-bending”, which means the working area between the main boom and the outer boom is no less than 195°. Over-bending offers greater flexibility when working through narrow passages and under overhead obstructions, the ability to lift maximum loads in all boom positions, and a lower total height when the crane is stowed on the truck body.

A key safety feature standard on all IMT articulating crane models is the RCL (rated capacity limiter) system. It monitors the crane’s load moment, operation and function. In an overload situation, the system warns the operator and interrupts the distribution of oil for crane functions, while allowing functions that reduce load moment to remain operational.
