Hiab releases innovations to US market at World of Concrete
Hiab, part of Cargotec, brings new crane technologies to the US market at the World of Concrete event January 21-25 2019, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Designed to make crane operation safer and more efficient, the new technologies are Crane Tip Control (CTC), Variable Stability Logic Plus (VSL+), Semi Automatic Folding (SAF) and the connected service, HiConnect.
Hiab celebrates its 75-year anniversary in 2019 and continues to innovate the loader crane industry with new features that are unique on the US market. Crane Tip Control brings increased automation to crane operation by simplifying operator controls. This lets even novice operators perform complicated movements to deliver the load from point A to point B, simply and safely. Variable Stability Logic Plus is a revolutionary safety system that automatically maximizes crane capacity according to both the stabilizer position and “the load” on the bed of the truck. Semi Automatic Folding automates all crane folding and unfolding maneuvers via one remote paddle, giving further protection to both the crane and truck. HiConnect is a connected service for Hiab customers to bring real-time data and insights about their equipment, to enhance productivity and optimize equipment performance, which allows customers to avoid unnecessary downtime.
“Hiab celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2019, and I can’t think of a better way to pay tribute to our pioneering history than bringing these innovations to the US market,” says Hiab’s Barry McGrane, VP North America. McGrane further says, “Concrete companies are well-positioned to benefit from these solutions as capacity and performance demands are ever-present in this space.”
Terry Fidler, Business Development Manager with Hiab USA, will discuss these innovations and take press questions at World of Concrete at 4pm on January 23, 2019, in the Press Conference Room N251 within the Las Vegas Convention Center.
