Exceptional success at Bauma 2022
The Bauma trade fair proved to be a standout success for Jekko, which brought no less than 3 new products to this 33rd edition of the fair with the re-modelling of its product range. Over the years Jekko worked hard to present cranes developed to be easy to understand and use, user-friendly, and that still kept the environmental-friendly feature, as with previous models. We were very honored to see how much our products were well appreciated by the hundreds of visitors at the fair.   Four lines with four products each, this is the new concept!   The complete product range include: SPX line with new SPX328, SPX532, SPX650 and SPX1280 JF line with new JF235, JF365, JF545 and JF990 MPK line with MPK06, MPK10, new MPK20R and MPK50 Vacuum&Tools line with JVL450 and JVL600 vacuum lifters, JVM800R glass manipulator, JIB500GR grabber and 5-10-20 tons lifting beams.   This Bauma 2022 is just a new starting point from which to develop cutting-edge ideas and products that we will be happy to share with you. We would like to thank all the people who came to visit us and spent some of their time with us! See you at Bauma 2025!    
New SPX328
As the result of years spent in market analysis, research and development, the new SPX328 is a cutting-edge machine that offers a smooth User Experience even for beginners. With this new model, the Italian company unveils a modern, innovative, convenient and handy product that requires minimum training and guides the operator through the different working phases, streamlining the processes and turning even the most difficult operation into something easy to perform. From stabilization to operation, the operator is easily steered throughout his work. The screen of this model, where the operator is guided step by step to set the parameters of his experience, is the quintessence of the User-Friendly concept. This is the major element of the SPX328, designed and developed for both entry-level operators and skilled users.   FEATURES The brand-new design of the SPX328 proposes soft and rounded lines yet it holds to Jekko’s typically engaging boxy style. This is a crawler minicrane stands in the category that can easily drive through standard doorways with a maximum capacity of 2800 kg, powered by LiFe-PO4 210Ah lithium-ion batteries. SPX328 is the first minicrane worldwide equipped with an electric jib – with a 500-kg maximum lifting capacity   INNOVATION An onboard 10” interactive touchscreen – featuring an IP67 Protection Rating for operation in any yard and in no matter what weather conditions, from low to high temperatures, under the sun and the snow, even when using work gloves – interacts with the crane via the Jekko Touch Experience system, that guides the operator step by step in order to configure the crane before starting operation, and has tutorials that can be watched on the display. A radio remote control included as standard equipment and the HOOK Recovery system: the automatic block stowing system for multiple pulls. An advanced radio-remote-controlled self-levelling system levels the crane in an independent way so that it positions correctly no matter how the stabilizers are placed and also on uneven ground. Another system this model is fitted with is the Kick Down system, that detects the travel operation depending on how the levers are used and allows for a higher speed during drive exceeding the maximum standard speed of the crane.   The SPX328 is the outcome of a know-how developed over years of experience, empathy and attention for the dynamics of the market and its evolution. The world changes and Jekko changes as well, adapting and improving its machines, heading to the future and targeting eco-friendliness.  
After the success gathered in 2019, Jekko won’t miss out on Bauma 2022, which will take place in Munich on October 24th through 30th. Our exhibition space (outdoor area FS, booth 903/6) will spread out on a 512-sqm surface that will be set up with 5 containers in line to result into two-floor structure housing offices for meetings, a hospitality zone and a reception-living area where customers and dealers will be greeted. The containers that will be used have been salvaged and refurbished on purpose for this show and will be later installed in our headquarters in Italy and destined to become a new customer training area thus sticking to our corporate sustainability scheme, developed in 2021 and implemented since January 2022. Jekko’s machines on display at Bauma are designed and developed to be user-friendly, that is easy to use and to understand, suitable to be used by both beginner and skilled operators. The entire Jekko range can always be operated in electric mode as all the machines on display at Bauma will show: the SPX minicrane line is powered by lithium-ion batteries, the MPK minipicker range has acid-lead batteries while the JF articulated crawler cranes are bi-energy machines combining a diesel engine with an electric motor. Bauma 2022 will also be a showcase for the latest additions in each line of models: the SPX328 in the SPX range that will be officially unveiled on September 20th; the JF235 in the JF line; the MPK10 and MPK20R in the minipicker range. Jekko will also showcase other models from the above lines: Minipickers: MPK06 and MPK10 fitted with their manipulator SPX: SPX532 equipped with JVM800, SPX650 set up with tools JIB500GR and SPX1280 JF: JF545 with 2-man basket and JF990 Tools: suction cups JVL450 and JVL600 with trolley, manipulator JVM800, JIB500GR and 5-, 10-, 20-ton lifting beams. For this 33rd edition of the show, Jekko focuses on innovation and progress, two crucial values for the challenges that the company has decided to tackle in the current years in order to strengthen its position as sector leading player.
Nuremberg 12th to 15th July 2022 – FENSTERBAU FRONTALE
Fensterbau Frontale is scheduled for July and Jekko won’t miss the chance after exhibiting in 2018. Taking part in this show is a not-to-be-missed showcase for the products dedicated to the glass sector. Jekko will be an exhibitor in hall 4A-317 with a 73-sqm stand and will put on display an electric-powered SPX532 equipped with a JVM800 vacuum manipulator for glass panes, an MPK06 minipicker and the new entry MPK10 – both fitted with vacuum manipulators for glass panes – as well as the JVL450 and JVL600 vacuum lifters with their dedicated trolley for laying-up and transport. All these models and their tools are the company’s flagship products dedicated to the glass pane handling and fitting sector. The Treviso-based company offers a wide range of machinery designed for glass pane fitting. Minicranes and minipickers have reduced weight and compact dimensions, are easy to transport and stabilize, and can be fitted and integrated with a glass pane manipulator or a vacuum lifter to become machines ideal to operate in confined spaces and in the top floors of a building. The minicranes used in the construction of skyscrapers are an example. These cranes can operate and be stabilized on the top floors so that glass facade fitting at lower floors is fast and simple. Glass panes can even be lifted from the ground floor up to the floor where they’re needed by means of a radio remote controlled winch. On the other hand, minipickers have a right/left turret rotation of at least +/- 9° making them the sole pick&carry lifters that – when equipped with a 360° continuous rotation, tilt and swing glass manipulator – can drive through narrow places with a panel placed on their side keeping it within the crane loading gauge. Glass pane fitting is controlled via a wire control or a radio control. These machines can be fitted with tools such as hydraulic or electric manipulators or vacuum lifters for glass pane handling. Battery-powered hydraulic manipulators are used for an accurate fitting of glass panes and are faster and more effective of vacuum lifters since they’re radio remote controlled by an operator, can move in all four directions and can also tilt and rotate for a precise and careful positioning of the glass panes. Vacuum lifters are used with any crane fitted with a hookblock lifting system to move glass panes in a fast and safe way. Here follow the main characteristics of the products that will be on display at the show.
