IMT Introduces Enhanced Articulating Cranes at MINExpo 2021September 13, 2021
GARNER, Iowa (September 13, 2021) – Iowa Mold Tooling Co., Inc. (IMT), an Oshkosh Corporation company (NYSE:OSK), is pleased to introduce improved mid-range and large articulating cranes with increased capacity and higher grade steel than before at MINExpo 2021. The show will be held Sept. 13 – 15 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev. IMT will be at booth 8071-C.
The increased capacity for both the mid-range and the large articulating cranes comes from higher-grade steel used in their construction. The higher-grade steel improves the machines’ lift-to-weight ratio, resulting in a lower weight crane.
Enhanced models include the mid-range 1610, 1620, 1910, 1920, 2310, 2320, 2810 and 2820 cranes alongside the large articulating crane models 7020 and 9520. The 7020 replaces the 60/427 and the 9520 replaces the 80/565.
“IMT customers need both lift capabilities and capacity that are tailored to their most challenging applications,” said John Field, product manager at IMT. “Our new enhanced mid-range and large articulating crane models offer an elevated level of performance — with lower weight — for increased productivity.”
