Air Technical Industries of Mentor, Ohio announces an advanced design of a new, high tech OMNI-TRAX MOBILE PLATFORM for heavy loads of up to 20,000 lbs. The unit is capable of accelerating or decelerating in any direction (360 degrees) at infinitely variable speeds as if it were a flying saucer.
This piece of equipment adds a new dimension of flexibility and maneuverability in an industrial environment. The Knuckle Crane has the capability of reaching far into, high over, under and beyond hard to reach places. It can reach into pits below the floor and into nooks and crannies.
These capabilities make it a tremendous tool for complex and precision assembly work, to handle and articulate components into the exact position desired.
The advanced design of OMNI-TRAX mobile transporter is fully self-contained. It is powered by a heavy-duty industrial battery with a built in battery charger. It has the capability of 8 hours of intermittent operation.
On top of the platform is a turret capable of 360° rotation so that the boom of the crane can be positioned in any direction regardless of the direction of travel.
The crane has a basic boom lift, and a knuckle boom with telescopic action. All of the crane functions are hydraulically operated. The hydraulics, battery and counterweight are built into a streamlined power pack that is always in the opposite direction of the boom position to keep the unit stable during operation.
Units are available in 1000 to 20,000 lb. capacities. Boom lengths available are from 6 to 20 feet with lifting heights of up to 24 feet. Controls available are pedestal or pendant with push buttons and joysticks or optional radio remote control. The crane is an innovative tool that will help to improve safety and efficiency in unique industrial environments.
