The 3 new releases were premiered today at Combilift headquarters at an exclusive media event to mark Combilift’s 25th year in business.
The Combi-LC facilitates the transport of wind turbine components, handling lengths of up to 115m and weights of about 70t. This system streamlines the movement across production stages and to storage sites, even spanning distances of up to 5km.
As the green energy sector continually pushes the boundaries of height and size for components like wind turbine towers and blades, there arises an ever-growing need for novel methods to transport these finished products from the manufacturing facility to the storage yard before dispatch to their intended destinations. Combilift has collaborated with industry giants in this sector to engineer stable and highly efficient lifting solutions for these challenging and exceptionally valuable loads, culminating in the creation of the Combi-LC.
The Combi-LC carrier unit boasts a unique attachment designed to securely grip the substantial cylindrical end of the blade, firmly affixed to the generator hub. This robust machine, powered by a 75-ton capacity diesel engine and equipped with 12 wheels, offers versatile multidirectional steering with 6 wheels. What sets it apart is its “tip side” carrier unit, which smoothly maneuvers beneath the blade, supporting it via a hydraulic tilting table-mounted clamp toward its narrower tip.
Notably, this root side unit represents the first Combi-LC iteration to feature a cab, a customization made at the request of our customers. This addition proves invaluable, especially when traversing the 5km distance to reach the storage yard. When not engaged in lifting duties, the cab-equipped Combi-LC can travel at an impressive 10km/h, significantly expediting the operator’s commute. It’s worth mentioning that these units often operate in demanding environments with less-than-ideal ground conditions, making their robust design and adaptability all the more essential.
The Combi-AGT is a 4-wheel electric stand-on sideloader, which harnesses the very latest smart technology to meet customer demands for driverless sideloader capability with a capacity of 5,000kg/11,000lbs.
This enhanced adaptive safety system enables the size of the obstacle detection fields to increase or decrease as per the steer angle and speed of the truck.
The natural feature navigation system is superior to traditional methods of truck navigation based on wire guidance or artificial landmarks such as reflectors. Instead, it uses the naturally occurring features in a warehouse – walls, racking and columns for example, avoiding the need to add to or change the warehouse infrastructure.
The patent pending load dimension detection system operates by performing a laser scan of the load to check that its length matches the task sent to the machine. Similarly, when unloading, it checks that the rack in front has sufficient free space to accept the load.
