WOLFFKRAN at bauma 2016
News from Heilbronn for the construction sites of this world: At this year’s bauma, premium manufacturer WOLFFKRAN will present its biggest flat-top crane ever and the best of 30 years of innovation in luffing technology with a new luffing crane model. In line with this year’s motto of World Wide WOLFF, WOLFFKRAN will also be showcasing the US version of its bestseller luffing cranes. A proven cross model and various standard components will round off the leader of pack’s exhibition display. In addition to the product innovations, the exhibition stand will place special emphasis on the worldwide presence of the red WOLFFs.
Launch of the biggest WOLFF clear crane and new WOLFF luffer
With the WOLFF 7534 clear, WOLFFKRAN is introducing the biggest and most powerful flat-top crane of the pack to-date and thus rounding off its product line the 315 mt range. “Easy to assemble, space-saving, powerful and economical. Although it is our largest crane without a tower top section, the WOLFF 7534 clear offers all the advantages of a flat-top construction and is perfect for inner-city construction sites that require space-saving solutions, up to date assembly concepts and quick turnaround times,” says Ulrich Dörzbach, Managing Director and Head of Research and Development of WOLFFKRAN GmbH.
The city is also the home turf of WOLFFKRAN’s second newcomer. Its specialty: high-rise construction sites. “Our new WOLFF 275 B includes the technology and know-how we gained over three decades developing luffing cranes,” says Gerd Tiedtke, Product Manager at WOLFFKRAN. Thanks to a maximum load capacity of 24 tons, a hook path of 700 meters and a hoisting speed of up to 222 m/min, the 275 B lifts prefab parts, steel and concrete effortlessly and lets skyscrapers rise skyward in no time. It operates in the accustomed efficient and economical WOLFF manner and plays in the top league with its WOLFF typical high-quality standard equipment when it comes to technology, safety and comfort.
The two new additions are accompanied by the experienced WOLFF 8033 cross of the 450 mt class. Its impressive lifting capacity paired with extremely easy assembly, comparable with the assembly of a model in the 300 mt range, make this WOLFF one of the most popular saddle jib cranes in XXL class.
New WOLFF territory: North America
After an absence of almost 40 years, WOLFFKRAN returned to the US market in 2015 and opened a new branch office just outside of New York City. At the same time and underlining its ambition to expand its territory, WOLFFKRAN has released US versions of the popular WOLFF 355 B and 700 B luffing cranes. WOLFFKRAN will showcase the smaller model WOLFF 355 B US at bauma. With their high load capacities of 28 tons (355 B) and 50 tons (700 B), powerful 110 kW (355 B) and 132 kW (700 B) hoisting winches, jibs with optional auxiliary hoist and fly-jib and their adapted electrics and construction to meet US regulations, these cranes are ideally suited to meet the demands of modern US high-rise construction sites.
World Wide WOLFF
Whether it is in America, Europe, Asia, Africa or the Middle East, the WOLFFs have claimed their territory around the world. “Along these lines, our exhibition stand will feature the motto World Wide WOLFF at this bauma,” explains Ulrich Dörzbach. “At various stations, visitors to our stand can go on a virtual journey around the world and discover where our red giants are rising into the sky.” What exactly would this journey look like? Come and see for yourself, you’re in for a surprise!
