Clyde Iron, a unit of AMCA International is now offering a second-generation revolving crane--the Clyde Hydra-Whirley--for port operations, shipbuilding and heavy construction. The crane combines the power of hydraulics with the versatility of electronics. While models are available up to 460 KIPS, the new crane's electronic controls allow ultra-precise positioning with touch control for delicate movements. Modular construction means that assembly and erection time is reduced 30 to 50 percent over conventional cranes, Clyde says. The crane is designed for five independent motions--swinger, travel, boom, main and whip hoists--individually powered and controlled.
