Three years after the last show, Jekko will be again an exhibitor at the Bauma expo with the aim of telling a brand new story where new products and technologies play the leading role. The director is the same: a young company whose target has always been the “active listening to customers” while implementing effective technologies and craftsmanship on a new range of products that increasingly turns innovative, green and user-friendly.
Jekko’s exhibiting area – FS open-air area, stand 903/6 – will cover 512 square metres and will showcase all the new products of the Jekko world: the new JF990, the hybrid version of model SPX1280HYB, the full electric lithium-battery SPX532, just to mention a few; as for minipickers, the MPK06 and the MPK12 are a breakthrough in the sector of indoor building yards; the new and user-friendly interface of Jekko radio remote controls and the innovative J-Connect telemetry system for all the new Jekko mini cranes.
Bauma will be the launching pad for a new merchandising line that will include a little showcase with products for sale, such as a scale reduction of a Jekko machine. A J-Connect area will be set up for dealers and visitors to meet and analyse the concepts of telemetry and user interface.
MINI SPIDER CRANES
The flagship model will be the SPX532 with a full electric lithium-battery motor. Also available with a diesel engine, the SPX532 is an ideal crane for indoor operation and for all those activities requiring a machine as little as to go through a single door. This mini crane is equipped with geometric control system and easier-friendly software designed in-house that make the operator’s work simpler.
The Jekko radio remote control also has new features: a more user-friendly interface for easy and intuitive management of the countless options as well as automatic and fast functions for simpler operations.
Jekko will also focus on the first hybrid version of a mini crane: the SPX1280HYB. This latter is the evolution of the SPX1275: it features a maximum load capacity increased from 7,500 to 8,000 kg and new hydraulic systems. With a 3-extension hydraulic JIB, the SPX1280 is one of Jekko’s most popular mini cranes.
On Jekko’s stand at the Bauma expo there will also be an SPX312 and an electric lithium-battery SPX424, traditional models of the company.
Most of the show will be stolen by model JF990, which will be launched on the market as an evolution of the most successful JF545 and JF365. The new JF is a further generation of the previous models in the JF line that pioneers a new hoisting concept of articulated crane: the traditional truck-loader crane becomes a crawler crane. The JF990 is the world’s largest mini crane featuring a loading capacity of as much as 100 ton/m and, despite its dimensions, a weight not exceeding 23 tons. The machine can be equipped with a counterweight that raises the weight to 28 tons and, similarly to model JF545, it can work in both horizontal and vertical position, it can pass or dodge an obstacle, and it can operate in hook or winch more or with a selflevelling platform.
In addition to model JF990, a JF40 will be on display in Jekko’s stand at the Bauma expo while a JF545 will be presented at Fassi’s stand (FN 926/2).
MINIPICKERS & TELE-CRAWLER CRANE
During the Bauma expo Jekko will showcase the new models MPK06 and MPK12 having a 600-kg and 1,200-kg load capacity respectively. Both machines are equipped with 4 wheels instead of 3 and special tyres can be fitted for off-road operation. These pick&carry minipickers are the first having 100% electric actuators and those on display at the Bauma expo will be fitted with manipulators designed for handling and laying of glass panes.
Finally, the SPK60 will also be present at Bauma: a tele-crawler crane with 6 ton of maximum capacity and 3 tons of pick & carry.
Building on its corporate experience in the glass handling sector and first worldwide in fitting vacuum manipulators to mini cranes, Jekko is going to unveil a new series of vacuum lifters for flat and curved glass panes. These vacuum lifters have a double pump with blow-off function for easier release.
J-CONNECT – TELEMETRY
Jekko has invested on bidirectional connectivity for Internet connection of the mini cranes. Remote monitoring and assistance are available via a dedicated portal. This system is applicable to the JF series and to the traditional mini crane range.
