Zoomlion, one of China’s top construction machinery manufacturers, will be launching eight new aerial work platform models.
The 8 new aerial work machinery products released by Zoomlion cover the self-propelled electric scissor lift type, curved arm type and straight arm type. Based on Zoomlion’s traditional technical advantages and supplemented by such new technologies as the Internet of Things (IoT) and modern sensing, these new products are characterized by “reliability, simplicity and efficiency”, with several indicators reaching industry-leading level; they also meet the requirements of European, American and national standards, and can provide customers and aerial work operators with a safe, efficient and comfortable user experience.
According to the Technical Director, the scissor lift platform has a designed platform height of 6-12 m and a maximum bearing capacity of 350 kg, enabling it to support three people working at height within the vertical lifting range. It can be widely used in construction, workshop construction, housing decoration and maintenance, etc. At the same time, Zoomlion pays special attention to safety and stability in its scissor lift platform products; the designed center of gravity is low and the lateral deflection is small, contributing to high operation stability. The products are mainly battery powered, green and environmentally friendly, and their endurance is more than 10% higher than that of their peers. At present, Zoomlion’s scissor lift products have obtained the relevant qualifications to be sold in the markets of Europe and Southeast Asia.
In addition, the two arm-type aerial work platforms presented at the launch event all adopt a four-wheel-drive cross-country chassis with a maximum climbing capacity of 45%, satisfying a range of outdoor work conditions. Among them, the curved arm aerial work platform ZA14J is China’s first 14 m curved arm product designed for super-large load and dual load, and its bearing capacity is more than 30% higher than that of other products in the industry. At the same time, the product adopts a zero-tail pendulum design, making it very suitable for operation in narrow space.
The other straight-arm aerial wok operation platform ZT26J has reached industry-leading level in micro-motion control, with a minimum telescoping speed of 20 mm/s and a leveling accuracy of less than 1.5 degrees. The product adopts a boom structure of three telescopic arms plus flying arms, and has been optimized in the aspects of telescopic boom stability and leveling accuracy, making it an absolutely leading aerial work platform.
The 8 new aerial work machinery products released by Zoomlion all adopt modern sensing and IoT technology; equipped with artificial intelligence ‘brains’, they can realize intelligent fault warning and diagnosis through such means as remote management platforms, mobile APPs, equipment self-control systems, etc. The complete sensing system can provide accurate safety warnings in case of overloading, tilting, potholes, etc., thereby maximizing the convenience and safety of mechanical operation.
According to industrial analysis, assuming that China’s development of aerial work platforms reaches the European level in the future, the corresponding number of aerial work platforms will be 630,000. At present, China’s holding volume is only 40,000, with growth space of 16 times, and the corresponding market size is expected to reach nearly RMB 100 billion. Assuming such development reaches the American level, the corresponding growth space will be 40 times. In the future, China’s aerial work platforms are expected to usher in a rapid development period.
