Loading crane for Haulerman’s van 2011
A customer was looking for a loading crane that could be integrated into his van. He contacted us looking for help in turning his idea into a successful product.
The integrated loading crane makes it possible to load anything weighing up to 250 kg into the van, and quickly and efficiently fills the cargo area almost up to the ceiling. A wireless remote controller makes the electromechanical crane easy to use. Lifting takes places using the winch mechanism installed on the telescopic boom, the lifting point of which is close to the ceiling of the van and no more than two metres from the van’s back edge. The goods to be hauled can be conveyed to the back wall of the cabin using the crane. The purpose of the loading crane is to maximise the use of the cargo area, prevent accidents and reduce the number of people and amount of equipment needed for loading goods.
The most common items that need lifting include pallets, gas canisters, barrels, home appliances and heavy tools. Another use for the lifting crane is as a lifting aid, for example, in repairing and maintaining vehicles and heavy equipment.
Owner’s manual for Amomatic
The starting point of the project was to create an owner’s manual for our customer Amomatic, which operates in the delivery of asphalt plants, supplemental operating systems, maintenance and a deep knowledge of the processes concerning asphalt production and plants.
The CE- marked manuals were created based on each product module – where some of the modules relied on the older documentation material, the new systems such as AmoControl operating system had no existing manual. The absolute requirement was efficient language, clarity and the validity of the information.
The documentation projects are put in place to guarantee watertight instructions, that leave no room for speculation. Depending on customers’ wishes, the factual information may be supported by a visual look or a certain style to address the concerned stakeholders. The manual operates right in the client interface, since the manuals are provided in connection to the delivery of the product.
