What's New at Amco Veba
New L System
The new stability control system allows two operating modes depending on the stabilizer's status.
Crane is fully stabilized (beams fully open and stabilizer's feet on the ground). Crane can lift 100% of the nominal capacity through the entire slewing area.
Only stabilizer's feet on the ground - The Level sensor mounted on base, monitors the leveling of the truck, if the truck is not level, the operator must move the stabilizers to level it. Once truck is leveled it is possible to open the crane from transport position and lift the load. If the load tilts the truck over a permitted angle, the load limiting device stops the crane functions and allows only movements reducing the moment.
Upgraded Single Hand Radio Remote Control
Claxon button on transmitter -
This function allows the operator to activate a claxon directly from the transmitter and it is useful to warn of dangerous situations near the crane.
Turtle mode available -
A new button has been introduced on the crane that allows the operator to enter into turtle mode with the radio remote control. This slows down the movement of the crane when performing delicate operations which require slow movements.
Troubleshooting display on receiver
The new receiver is provided with a troubleshooting display that allows the user to know the condition of the radio in real time and indicate the presence of any radio alarm.
2.4 GHz transmission frequency
The radio works on only one frequency: 2.4 Ghz. Since the frequency is recognized in all countries, it's no longer necessary to change the frequency. This reduces the possibility of errors and the required operation for our testers.
The new radio can be programmed using a Laptop connected with a standard USB cable to the receiver. The software allow setting each function's speed.
Upgraded Quality Control in Assembly Line
In order to constantly improve the quality of Amco Veba cranes, the assembly line is monitored at 9 check points. After each step of the assembly procedure, the crane is checked by the assembly personnel or by the dedicated quality team. The type of controls to be made at each step are listed in our ISO9001:2000 quality manual.
90% - 100% Winch Load Warning
The winch is equipped with a special load sensor. The load sensor mounted on the winch measures the load lifted by the winch. The limiter enables and disables the lighting of the acoustic indication light column. When the winch lifts 90% of the nominal load, the limiter intervenes, turns on the orange light. When the winch lifts 100% of the nominal load, the limiter intervenes, turns on the red light, and activates an acoustic signal.
Brevini and Dinamic Oil Winch
The winch is provided with a load sensor mounted directly on the base. The load limiter strain gauge detects deformations included by the pull of the rope on the drum support elements, and provides electrical output signals to activate the light column.
