Fagioli takes delivery of new EZ Lifter gantries
18 April 2008
The new EZ Lifter model 600-33 with 4 legs will lift 650 metric tons to a height of 32 feet.
Four new EZ Lifter model 600-33 gantries, manufactured by Riggers Manufacturing Company in Moline, IL, were delivered to Italian heavy lift specialist Fagioli in June.
The gantries have Rigger's new Computer Aided Remote Lifting (CARL) load management system. CARL provides both synchronized lifting and travel of two or four legs. The system has a portable remote control station with a large screen display. This provides active information about the lift at one glance whether operating two or four legs. It displays caution and warning messages and shuts the system down if an overload condition is recognized. It can be set to shut off the system when the load reaches a predetermined height.
Fagioli operators will be fully trained on the new CARL system at their facility in Italy before the EZ Lifters depart to the construction site of a large LNG project and to a manufacturer of nuclear components to lift 800 tons steam generators, the initial phase of the door-to-door transport to the a replacement project in the US.
