Why choose a Cattaneo crane.

The cranes made at our factory are projected and built to be reliable, last in time and ensure to the client, everywhere they are, in case of need, a ready availability of spare parts and specialized technicians. The technical office guarantees a valid pre and post selling technical assistance.

     

Quick assembling hydraulic crane.

No electrical components on the jib and on the high parts of the crane.

Mechanisms and engines easily accessible for inspection: engines, limit switches, load limiting devices, whole electric system, gauge and oleo dynamic gearbox placed on the base of the crane for an easy maintenance and adjustment on ground.

Complete equipment.

All Cattaneo hydraulic cranes are supplied in series with hot galvanization of the tower, jib and tie-rods, with job-site axle with 4 big pneumatic wheels, assembling and finishing ballast.

Transportation on lorry within the loading gauge.

All Cattaneo cranes, in tow position, complete with axle and wheels, are transportable on lorries within the loading gauge according to the maximum measurements allowed by the Highway Code.

 

Planning and technical office    


Cattaneo cranes are entirely planned by the Luigi Cattaneo Ltd technical office.
Planning, construction and prototype tests, carried on according to the Certified Quality System procedures, have to allow the realization of a new project adequate to the market requests, considering the technique and acquired knowledge deriving from the experience accumulated in over fifty years, to a solid technical tradition and the will of innovation.

The whole planning project is managed in a CAD 3D environment, with remarkable advantages regarding studying the crane movements, efforts analysis, maximization of the details. All the technical documents supplied together with the crane are realized by the technical office and they guarantee  completeness, information accuracy and an easy consultation.

Prototypes tests are carried on meticulously and under extreme conditions about the structure mechanical stress both in loading test phase and, for hydraulic cranes with low rotation,  in assembling and disassembling phase (e.g. with jib alignment during assembling).

 
   
In the picture, the prototype is submitted to the jib alignment at the same time with the tower  hoisting, operation which stimulates the crane structure and the assembling hydraulic plant at their maximum levels.
