Palfinger Cranes

logoABM Equipment & Supply offers PALFINGER knuckle boom cranes, the most versatile types of cranes manufactured today. With exceptional weight to lift ratio, ease of use and value they should be considered for most crane applications.

PALFINGER is among the internationally leading manufacturers of hydraulic lifting, loading and handling systems and ABM Equipment is proud to represent and support this line of products. The Group's core product is the knuckle-boom loading crane - in this segment the company is the world market leader with close on 150 models and a market share of 30%. In the world market for hydraulic knuckle-boom cranes, the PALFINGER Group is regarded not only as the market leader but also as the technology leader. 

This position is impressively confirmed by the three new crane series “Performance”, “Advantage” and “Compact”, as well as by the latest innovations such as the (AOS) Active Oscillation Suppression system, the standard inclusion of return oil utilization, the patented PALFINGER INTERLOCK SYSTEM for securing the outriggers, the POWER LINK PLUS reverse linkage system, (HPSC) High Performance Stability Control and the application of KTL cataphoretic dip painting technology.

No other knuckle-boom crane manufacturer comes close to having the presence in North America that Palfinger has. With manufacturing and parts operations in both Niagara Falls, Canada and Tiffin, OH, Palfinger and the local dealer support of ABM Equipment & Supply together we can support their products better than any other knuckle-boom manufacturer.

Palfinger Features

Logo Product Feature How It Works
The right surface treatment is the foundation for durable and long-lasting surface protection. The components pass through the priming and painting process stages fully automatically. Through this innovative technology for surface coating, PALFINGER creates a quality standard that is usually only found in the automobile industry. The crane components are cleaned of all impurities by means of cut steel shot blasting. The components are degreased, rinsed, activated and coated with zinc phosphating in the individual immersion tanks. After two additional rinsing processes, the surfaces are passivated as well as rinsed with ultra-pure water. The electrostatic cathodic dip painting follows by immersing the crane components completely in the paint. Excess paint is washed off in two additional operations with an ultra-filtration rinse. Afterwards, the paint is cured at a temperature of 115 degrees for 1.5 hours. At the end, the crane components are given a water-soluble, environmentally friendly two-component finish coat of paint by a painting robot.
Today, radio remote controls are often considered to be standard equipment when it comes to modern loader cranes. PALFINGER radio remote controls are equipped with linear or cross levers and provide the greatest possible comfort of the operator. For cranes without PALTRONIC we offer a handset without display. For cranes with PALTRONIC an LED display informs the crane operator of the different operating conditions. The remote control console (transmitter) is responsible for transmitting the commands made on the levers to the receiver. The receiver forwards the signals to the electronics, which convert them into crane movements by means of hydraulic control valves.
The patented PALFINGER "AOS" oscillation suppression system cancels out vibrations and blows that occur during crane operation. Any "post-oscillation" is prevented through rapid braking or load changes. The result is a decisive increase to safety in crane operation for employees, the load and building. The electronics receive signals from pressure sensors on both sides of the elevating cylinder and interpret them as arm vibrations. The signals for the counter-movement of the elevating cylinder are handled by the control valve. The incurred vibration can be canceled through the exactly determined frequency and wavelength. The result is damping of the arm to just one or two short vibrations so that the arm comes to an immediate standstill. Patent granted
The High Performance Stability Control (HPSC) is a fully proportional system for monitoring the stability of the crane vehicle. Sensors for proportional path measurement in the stabilizer supports permit completely variable support positioning. Hence, the permissible, safe working range can be calculated for any support situation. The HPSC system calculates the permissible working range for any slewing angle of the boom system and for any support situation. The position of the stabilizer support is detected by means of a cable extension transducer or magnetostrictive position sensor. Based on the intelligent calculation algorithm developed by PALFINGER, it works more efficiently than comparable systems that are available in the market.
The Dual Power System (DPS Plus) makes it possible to use the full lifting power of the fly-jib through the use of two pressure ranges on the fly-jib. With it the full lifting power of the fly jib can be used also for crane-jib combinations with a very long outreach if the crane's extension boom is not completely extended. The fly-jib can also be operated with two pressure ranges through the use of a special electronic overload cut-off. If the last extension boom of the crane is extended (normal operation), then the lifting power is reduced to protect the crane against overloading. If the last extension boom of the crane is retracted (DPS Plus active), then the system switches automatically to the high pressure range thereby using the full lifting power of the fly-jib.
With the PALTRONIC 50 and PALTRONIC 150, PALFINGER offers the latest control electronics for the series production crane. The most important safety and comfort functions include: Overload cut-off Stability control (HPSC), High Power Lifting System (HPLS), Active Oscillation Suppression system (AOS), Dual Power System plus (DPS plus) in the fly jib insert The PALTRONIC controls and monitors the crane. Pressure sensors on the cylinders send information on the capacity utilization of the crane to the PALTRONIC. Position sensors send information on the position of the boom system, the slewing gear or the stabilizer support to the PALTRONIC. Based on the incoming signals, the PALTRONIC decides on shutting down or activating systems.
