GARNER, Iowa (March 8, 2022) – Iowa Mold Tooling Co., Inc. (IMT), an Oshkosh Corporation company (NYSE:OSK) and top manufacturer of service vehicles, truck-mounted cranes, hydraulic loaders and air compressors, is displaying a battery powered hydraulic telescopic crane and compressor package as well as IMT® CMD.CTRL™ system at Work Truck Week 2022, North America’s largest work truck event. The show will return to the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Ind. March 8 – 11. IMT will be at booth 3139.
Battery Powered Hydraulic Telescopic Crane & Compressor Package powered by Vanair® EPEQ™ Technology
IMT continues to lead the service vehicle market in innovation by offering the first-to-industry battery powered hydraulic telescopic crane and compressor package. Powered by a Vanair EPEQ power system and ELiMENT™ battery, users will be able to power their hydraulic crane even when their vehicle is off. The crane and compressor package operates like a traditional PTO and pump setup, meaning there is no need for a full re-engineering of the hydraulic equipment to utilize the benefits of electrification.
“IMT is proud to offer industry-leading products that are designed and engineered to meet the needs we are hearing directly from our customers,” said Tom Wallace, Sales Manager at IMT. “The electrification of our hydraulic crane and compressor system is no exception. Our customers are facing stricter emissions standards and tighter margins — electrification solutions help them use less fuel and minimize vehicle wear and tear, ultimately helping their bottom line.”
IMT® CMD.CTRL™ System
Our latest patent pending controls system comes standard with the IMT Dominator® mechanics trucks and combines strong, reliable hardware with flexible, intuitive software to give operators a productive, user-friendly experience. Core components of the new system include convenient cab controls, service body compartment controls and the wireless remote-control system. Operators will be fully equipped to handle crane and body operation remotely. The patent pending IMT CMD.CTRL™ system is one of the leading controls platforms on the market and can operate a crane, stabilizers, lights, compressor and auxiliary equipment remotely from the wireless controller.
“The latest control system from IMT is taking the industry standard to a new level by enabling all components in our Dominator trucks to be operated remotely from the same system,” said Wallace. “The system provides a one-stop-shop for operators and provides the safety, productivity and reliability they deserve.”
