INDIANAPOLIS (March 7, 2023) – 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 providing a look into the sustainable technologies the company is pursuing with the battery-powered hydraulic telescopic crane and air compressor package it will have on display at Work Truck Week 2023, North America’s largest work truck event. The show will return to the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, March 7–10, and IMT will be located at booth #2801.
“We are leveraging our best technologies to bring sustainable, complete system packages to our customers as they work to future-proof their vehicles and service fleets in the face of changing industry regulations and market needs,” said Amy Brownlee, Vice President and General Manager of IMT. “Through innovative design and the vetting and testing of new solutions, we are working to develop and manufacture products that deliver the unparalleled quality and reliable user experience IMT products are known for.”
Battery-Powered Hydraulic Telescopic Crane and Compressor Package Powered By Vanair EPEQ™ Technology
IMT continues to be a leader in the service vehicle industry as it brings innovative products like the battery-powered hydraulic telescopic crane and compressor package to market. Powered by a Vanair EPEQ™ hydraulic power system and ELiMENT™ battery system, the hydraulic crane can be used even when the operator’s vehicle is off. The concept product on display features an IMT® 7500 Series telescopic crane and EPEQ™ AIR45 compressor package outfitted on a Dominator® I mechanics truck. 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 most pressing needs of our customers,” said Todd Leidall, Senior Director of Sales at IMT.
Work Truck Week 2023 is one of several opportunities where IMT will be showcasing the latest sustainable technologies the company is pursuing on behalf of its customers and stakeholders.
IMT CMD.CTRL™ System
IMT will also have its patent pending controls system IMT CMD.CTRL on display at Work Truck Week 2023. This system comes standard on 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 system include convenient cab controls, mechanics body compartment controls and the wireless remote control system. Operators are fully equipped to handle crane and body operation remotely. The IMT CMD.CTRL system is the leading control platform on the market to operate a crane, stabilizers, lights, compressor and auxiliary equipment remotely from the ergonomic wireless controller.
“We have taken the industry standard to a new level with IMT CMD.CTRL by enabling all functions in our Dominator trucks to be operated remotely from the same system,” said Leidall. “The system provides a one-stop shop for operators and enhances safety, productivity and reliability on the job.”
