Alimak launches powerful mast climber at Bauma
1 February 2019
A powerful new mast climbing work platform system will enter the international access market with the launch of the Alimak MC 650 range at Bauma 2019 in Munich.
The new model boasts platform lengths of over 19 metres in single mast configuration and over 40 metres in twin mast configuration and maintains considerable payload capacity even on the longest platforms. The maximum payload is no less than 4000kg on a single mast platform and 7100kg on its twin equivalent.
As the MC 650 uses the same innovative and patented mast sharing system as the Alimak Scando 650 construction hoist range, the maximum length of the platform is actually determined by the length of the building on which it will be used.
The MC 650 platform is suitable for use on corners, curves and angles allowing for the platform to be shaped to the building profile, additionally it can also be used with the Scando 650 hoist mast system. The MC 650 work platform can be used on either a mobile chassis or base frame.
The high capacity and versatility of the MC 650 platform generates increased productivity and cost efficiencies, making the range suitable for bricklaying, curtain walling, insulation and window installation and the handling of heavy or cumbersome materials, amongst other uses.
The new range meets an existing demand for large, powerful mast climbing work platforms with higher lifting capacity than most of the machines which are available on the market today can offer.
For high utilization we have combined the new MC 650 to use the existing MCM platform deck system, a possibility that allows unmatched flexibility and utilisation of equipment across ranges.
The MC 650 descends from a line of renowned platform ancestors that can be traced back to the 1950's when the world´s first mast climbing work platform appeared on the market.
Engineered and manufactured in Sweden, the new mast climber will be launched at Alimak´s stand #FS 1102/10 and is released for ordering during Bauma 2019.
