Iowa Mold Tooling Co., Inc. (IMT) has added the 5005i crane to its lineup of electric telescopic cranes. The 5005i has a lifting capacity of 5,000 pounds (25,000 ft-lb) and a maximum horizontal reach of 16 to 20 feet, depending on options.
The 5005i crane joins the other IMT electric crane models â€” the 2003i, 3203i, 4004i and 6006i â€” which are specifically designed for lighter lifting applications in the construction, utility, public works, energy and railroad markets, as well as for equipment dealers and rental equipment providers. The IMT electric crane lineup has a maximum horizontal reach ranging from 7 feet to 22 feet and capacity ranging from 2,000 pounds (7,000 ft-lb) to 6,000 pounds (36,000 ft-lb). All models are compatible with the IMT Dominator® mechanics trucks and feature manual and power booms, manual and power rotations, and 12-volt DC power sources. And like all IMT cranes, the electric telescopic cranes meet both OSHA 1910.180 and ANSI B30.5 standards.
In the past, contact points on electric cranes would start to weld together if the operator ran the crane for too long, and IMT has been able to dramatically extend the operating life of the crane by providing arc suppression and offering extended on-time motors, greatly lessening the product™s downtime.
The mechanical and hydraulic systems on the new 5005i and all other IMT electric telescopic cranes also have advanced design features. For example, the mechanical system includes an electric planetary winch and a stronger, all-steel gear rotator, while the hydraulic system has low hydraulic flows, larger cylinder/lower system pressure and a hose break cartridge in the cylinder ports
IMT recently added this line of electric cranes in order to provide its customers with a more comprehensive line of telescopic cranes. IMT electric cranes come with an advanced electrical system that provides efficient application of power through an extended on-time motor, solid-state control circuit, arc suppression and anti-two-block system.
