Advanced Tower Cranes

Schwing Stetter India has joined hands with XCMG for introducing advanced tower cranes in India.

Schwing Stetter India with its expertise in concreting the world for the last 83 years, has joined hands with renowned construction equipment manufacturer XCMG for introducing advanced tower cranes in India. Schwing XCMG has introduced 5 tonne and 6 tonne range of tower cranes that can withstand extreme conditions at construction sites. These highly adaptable fast erecting cranes are designed with features to handle high-rise projects. The tower crane by Schwing-XCMG come with free standing height of 35 m; can withstand upto 1.3 tonne at the tip load and 5 tonne at minimum radius of 2.4 m.

Unmatched features
XGT63YD (5013-5) is a new generation self-elevating tower crane with global standards. It is a multi-purpose tower crane with horizontal jib, trolley, upper-slewing and self-climbing. Features include:

  • It has advanced performance parameters and technical indicators, and max working radius is 50 m and max lifting height 140 m. The crane´s working type includes stationary type, under-frame loading type, attached typed, rail-mounted type and inner climbing type and so on, in order to meet different construction requirements.
  • It has high working speed with good performance, so it is smooth and reliable.
  • The main components of the electrical control system has long operating life with less breakdown and easy maintenance.
  • It also has reliable performance during operation.

Advanced technologies
1. The slewing mechanism is equipped with planetary gear and hydraulic coupler so that it is capable of lifting heavy load and for smooth start and breaking without impact.
2. The configuration of eight kinds of safety devices, that are mechanical or electromechanical integration products, ensure stable and reliable performance of the tower crane. The safety devices come with advanced technologies.
3. Lifting mechanism is equipped with a rope-winding system; anti-breaking rope device of trolley and anti-off-axis device.
4. Tensioning system of traction rope.
5. Rigid double drag rod suspends the wide-range jib. The jib has excellent stiffness and light weight. Various changes in length are entirely adaptable to meet different requirements.
6. The cab is installed at one side so the driver has wide visual field. Cab is with advanced steering linkage units for each action; is easy to operate and maintain.
The main advantage is that it is an external type tower crane that can be used as an inner climbing tower crane as well.

Safety features

  • Slewing limit allows stopping slewing movement of the jib after it takes 1.5 turns in left or right direction to avoid damage to electrical wires and excess torsion.
  • Hoisting limit allows stopping hoisting movement, when the hook block approaches the trolley and the ground, to control up-down limit.
  • Trolley limit switch stops the trolley movement when it approaches the jib end. It is to control the in and out Limit. Switching off the contactor is achieved by moving the trolley.
  • Moment limit has been integrated with over weight limit. These limit switches ensure that specified load at respective radius is not exceeded. 

Schwing Stetter India is also importing and trading 8 tonne, 10 tonne capacity of tower cranes and luffing cranes. The tower crane is suitable for low, medium, high-rise, super tall buildings, bridges engineering, large-span industrial plants, ports and high tower construction projects using sliding construction method.
