Featuring the same engaging design of the MPK06 but boasting a higher capacity, the new MPK10 model has been most recently introduced in Jekko’s minipicker range.
This model derives its concept from the MPK06 but pairs it with a maximum safe working load of 990 kg. It is designed and developed to make the operator’s work easier and better in terms of quality and in different fields of application much beyond glazed pane handling and including constructions and building, industrial maintenance and any sector where a compact and performing solution is needed.
The MPK10 has 4 24V-155Ah rechargeable batteries that power the electrohydraulic unit controlling the crane handling, the electrical actuators for the manipulator and the electric rotation motors for travel. This crane offers the advantage of a noiseless zero-emission motor when working indoors.
The MPK10 weighs approx. 970 kg and can add removable counterweights to reach a final weight of 1200 kg. Some European countries don’t require any crane licence provided that the machine capacity doesn’t exceed 1 ton; for its reduced size and low weight, the MPK10 can be transported on a regular van whose mass is lower than 3,500 kg or on a rear trailer.
This minipicker can be used with a hook or with a JVM10 vacuum manipulator for glazed panes fitted with 6 suction cups powered by a dual vacuum system, and delivers a maximum capacity of 990 kg. In addition to these tools, the crane can also be equipped with a second manipulator (600-kg load capacity) that optimises the total weight and increases both reach and maximum capacity.
Travel is controlled by the rear drawbar, which moves the machine on a 2.38-m bending radius, and by the wired control hooked to the machine and operating the turret, the arm and the manipulator.
A major characteristic introduced by the MPK10 is the optional radio-remote control in addition to the standard wired control. The radio-remote control features 6 independent and touch-proportional functions. The controls are divided into two groups of 3 buttons each, controlling the machine and the manipulator respectively. The radio-remote control has a great edge over the wired control since it operates the machine from any angle regardless of the minipicker position.
