Alpha Tower Cranes
The Alpha Tower cranes have male-female combo of mast to mast connect, with pins that facilitate faster installation. The structure of the Tower cranes is constructed with high grade tensile steel for best outcome and longevity. Further, the cranes are manufactured with modern technology and design to match the growing demand for bigger, heavier and sophisticated tower cranes, where lifting capacity ranges from 1.25 ton up to 10 ton, and jibs from 45 to 60 m; however, the principle supplies up to 80 m jib and 20 ton capacity.
Further, to enhance the quality and performance of the equipment, it is incorporated with world class European mechatronics. There are VVVF drives for all three operations, to ensure smooth and jerk free movement. Also, sealed slew-gear with automated greasing system is used to avoid periodical greasing. These cranes are fitted with AC operator’s cabin as a standard supply and the power consumption of the crane is least in its class. The equipment are supplied with option of fixed/base frame/travelling.
The types of Alpha Tower cranes are discussed below:
Flat Top Tower Cranes: Alpha has also developed a range of Flat Top cranes in technical collaboration with SOIMA of Portugal. While Alpha’s active manufacturing range has 4 models in the max capacity range of 5 ton to 10 ton, it can also manufacture cranes up to 20 ton capacity. In a market where most manufacturers offer pendent line Tower cranes (Hammerhead cranes), Alpha has a distinct positioning with the Flat Top Tower cranes. The Flat Top Tower cranes are more advantageous then Hammerhead cranes because they are safe and much easier to erect with their modular design. Also, at a site where multiple tower cranes need to be deployed, the erection of Flat Top Tower cranes is not required as high as the Tower cranes with Tower caps because the interference between the jibs is less.
Mobile Tower Cranes: Alpha introduced Mobile Tower cranes to the Indian market in 1988 with the Model SP-453. Since then, the company has enjoyed a pioneer status in the industry. Alpha’s range of Mobile Tower cranes is the most extensive, with a market share of over 50 per cent and annual sales volume of 80-100 units.
Fixed Tower Cranes: The features of Alpha’s Fixed Tower cranes are distinctive from the rest of the flock. In fact, few of the competitors have replicated Alpha’s features to revamp their class but they are not close to being like Fixed Tower cranes.
