Kalmar has introduced its next generation of Rubber-Tyred Gantry Cranes (RTG) to provide a new eco-efficient solution for container handling.
The new generation covers five models, with a stronger, lighter, and simpler modular design with intelligent features.
The new range is composed of five models, all with highly efficient powertrains: the Kalmar AutoRTG, the Kalmar Zero Emission RTG, the Kalmar Hybrid RTG, the Kalmar SmartPower RTG and the Kalmar Classic RTG.
The Kalmar AutoRTG application, powered by the Kalmar One automation system, allows terminal operators to automate their operations at their own pace.
Customers have the freedom to choose the level of automation that is right for their business based on predefined AutoRTG blueprints, and Kalmar One’s proven functionalities and well-established processes enable them to streamline and automate their operations based on their unique needs.
All models are automation-ready and their size can be customised according to customer specifications up to 10+1 wide to maximise stacking efficiency.
Wider cranes are especially suitable for intermodal applications but are also a viable option for marine terminals.
The RTG is optimised to deliver a high performance eco-efficient service, and is also safer and easier to operate.
The crane performance and usability is better than ever, due to its anti-sway technology, enhanced cabin design with improved visibility, and redesigned crane management system (CMS) which makes maintenance easier.
Service access has been improved with new platforms and relocated machinery including trim and anti-sway winches.
Additionally, all new-generation RTGs are connected to the Kalmar Cloud, making it possible to monitor the cranes remotely and benefit from remote support from the Kalmar service team.
Marko Rasinen, Product Manager, Kalmar, said, “The new generation of RTGs is a major update on our proven and highly popular RTG platform. We’ve implemented hundreds of improvements using the latest technologies based on feedback from our customers.
“Virtually every system has been improved in one way or another, bringing a vast range of benefits across the board and establishing a new standard for the category.”
