Founded Upon Military Innovation

Air Technical Industries provides lifting equipment for all branches of the defense department and is proud to announce that we work with the Armed Forces. The owner of the company Pero Novak was a helicopter pilot in the United States Army in his younger years. He envisioned his first portable crane when needing to service helicopter engines while stationed in Korea. He built our company on the sale of a small, portable crane, and after building many of these small shop cranes, he finally had the opportunity to build that exact crane that was sketched up in the mess hall in Korea. You can see the inspiration for the founding of our company below.

Over the years, these portable, mobile cranes have evolved and have been equipped with many different features to meet just about any application. They are available self-propelled, equipped with powered hydraulics, powered telescoping boom, cable winch, hazardous location packages, wireless radio controls, and the list goes on! Not only have they been able to service engines and other aviation applications, but they are now used in countless other industries as well. Let us help you design yours!

The RBC is In the Navy

A Naval customer was looking for a easier way to transport motors during the cleansing process. They have to be taking in and out of ovens and dip tanks. These motors weigh in the neighborhood of 700-1000 lbs. The existing monorail they have in place limits them to being able to transport the motors only on the path of the monorail track. Our RBC-4000-SPBW Reversible Boom Crane was a great solution. Like most applications, they were limited on maneuverability real estate. We were able to modify the base into what we call our “compact” version. While it increases the weight quite a bit, this modification provides for a shorter overall length. This opened up several possibilities in which this versatile mobile crane will be used on the shop floor. The customer had previous experience with our crane at another naval base, and is very excited to be able to benefit from using it again!! They couldn’t wait to get their hands on it!

NEW CONVERTIBLE MOBILE CRANE

Small Business Helps NASA with 4-in-1 Lifting Solution

rbc-ll-pr-lo

Mentor, Ohio September 9, 2016 – Air Technical Industries (ATI) announces the development of a new “Reversible, Convertible Self-Propelled Mobile Crane” designed especially for NASA.

NASA has the unique and challenging task of lifting and maneuvering hydraulic cylinders on a test stand.  Multiple heavy cylinders from 800 to 2100 pounds need to be lifted and positioned at different angles for assembly.  Working in tight areas with little clearance and low headroom created a major challenge in accomplishing these tasks safely.

The RBC-3000SPBLL-M has been equipped with regular telescoping boom and swivel eye hook for some common crane boom tasks.  The crane is convertible and can be changed to a double parallelogram boom with three-axis manipulator for pitch, yaw and roll operations with a pair of special adjustable forks and holding straps to secure the cylinders during articulation.

The cylinder can be lifted in vertical or horizontal orientations and the yaw axis allows the cylinder to swing left or right for precise positioning.  The pitch axis adjusts the vertical alignment to allow the cylinder to be tilted backwards, then raised and plugged into the proper orientation in a tight spot for installation.

The yaw adapter of the manipulator can be removed and replaced with traditional lifting forks for handling standard pallets.  The conversion from regular boom to parallelogram boom takes about 15 to 20 minutes and provides NASA with more flexibility and cost savings by having one piece of equipment handling four different tasks.

The RBC is constructed out of heavy duty welded steel.  The tilt back mast allows for space saving and provides better safety with less counterweight requirements, making the equipment lighter for easier mobility and longer battery life.

The crane is self-propelled battery powered with infinitely variable speed control from 0-4mph and the steering is 90° to left and right which is ideal for making sharp turns in crowded areas, narrow isles and tight spaces.  The unit has built in battery charger that is 120-volt operated.

The propulsion is electro-mechanical with built in automatic braking.  The mobility is provided on roller bearing mounted cushion-type wheels for quiet, smooth operation,  protecting the floor, and minimizing point loads on the work platform.

All the functions are hydraulically activated which includes the boom lift, telescopic boom  and pitch actions.  The hydraulic cylinders are equipped with chrome plated shafts for smooth operation and to prevent corrosion.  Hydraulic cylinders are equipped with holding valves to prevent loss of load in the event of a hydraulic failure.  The hydraulic systems is protected with safety relief valve to prevent over-pressurizing.

All the control functions are push button pendant remote controlled so that the operator can be hands on where precision alignment is required.  Hydraulic controls are also built into the steering handle allowing complete operation of the boom and drive functions from one location.

The RBC is truly an ideal tool that is, unique, versatile, mobile, agile, ergonomically safe to help NASA in deep space exploration.

Reversible Boom Crane Loses Weight

New telescopic base feature reduces weight, adds versatility

Mentor, Ohio November 23, 2015 Air Technical Industries (ATI) of Mentor, Ohio announces the development of a new version of its popular Reversible Boom Crane (RBC) mobile counterbalanced floor crane with new unique features that enable it to extend and retract its base to adjust the overall length of the crane. The great benefit of this feature is the reduced overall weight for ease of transportation and handling, as well as reduced ground loading for use on floors with limited capacity.

Short mode is desirable to operate in crowded areas, can fit in freight elevators, or for use on floors with light capacity. Long mode can operate in open areas with more room, provides greater capacity with the counterweight extended for increased leverage, more safety and stability. These new features greatly increase the versatility to meet the user’s need.

The unit features polyurethane bearing mounted wheels for floor protection and smooth easy travel. Steering capability is 90° to left and right, which enable it to make sharp turns in crowded areas.

The propulsion is battery powered and controls are infinitely variable speeds from 0-4 mph. The unit has the ability to travel very slow for precision alignment of load. The hydraulically actuated telescopic boom option enables the boom to be extended and retracted under load.

These units are available in capacities from 1000 lbs to 20,000 lbs. The boom lengths and lifting height are dependent on the capacity and size of the unit and can range from 8 ft height up to 24 ft. The most important feature of the RBC is the reach beyond the wheels. This enables the user to reach into, over, and beyond nooks, crannies, into enclosures, trucks, or other areas where no other handling equipment can.

The other important features of the RBC mobile crane is its slim build enabling it to pass through doorways, narrow aisles, tool room or other locations that are not easily accessible. The optional features are powered telescopic boom, powered telescopic base, hydraulic powered mast rotation, winch cable lift, outriggers, remote operated push button control, or wireless radio control.

The new RBC is indeed a valuable tool to help lift and carry any kind of load to make the job easier and safer. Now even a construction site with limited floor capacity can benefit from the tremendous versatility of the best shop crane ever.

Extendable Crane Hangs Curtain Wall

A customer in the curtain wall hanging industry was looking for a good way to lift and place his curtain wall into position. The sections could weigh up to 1,500 lbs maximum and would need to be lifted about 10 feet high to get into position. The Reversible Boom Crane, also popular with glaziers, was a great solution. They were working in new construction buildings and were limited to the point floor loads of the crane. We came up with a method to lessen those loads by designing it so that the base of the crane would hydraulically extend in length, spreading out the floor loading as well as reducing the amount of counterweight required to balance the load. The new design not only reduced the overall weight of the crane, but allows it to shorten to a more compact length for maneuverability in tight spaces. This new design feature is now available on units up to 6,000 pounds capacity.
