First fully electric steel-aluminium truck crane

Sustainable cranes and inclined construction lifts with innovative 230 V charging technology at bauma

From 24 to 30 October, Böcker will showcase trendsetting new developments at bauma in Munich and present the first fully electric truck crane in steel-aluminium design. The new electric crane AK 48e does not only work completely electrically in crane and platform mode, mounted on a Mercedes eActros the 27 t carrier also travels to site exclusively battery-powered. With the AK 48e, Böcker starts a new era proving that the electrification of powerful crane technology and the elimination of fossil fuels on the construction site are already possible today. Existing and future specifications regarding a low-noise, locally emission-free and climate-neutral drive with regenerative energy are already met by the AK 48e.

In addition to the fully electrically powered crane, the world's leading trade fair for the construction industry will focus on other innovations that make sustainable work suitable for everyday use. On the open-air ground south, booth 1203/2, the truck crane AK 37e, the trailer crane AHK 36e and the inclined lift Junior 24e will demonstrate how simple and at the same time powerful emission-free operation can be thanks to a 230 V electric motor. For the first time, the readily available connection to a normal household socket enables permanent electric operation on any building. The new developments operate with optimized consumption and require significantly less energy than comparable devices. Their strong battery capacity also ensures long self-sufficient use even without an external power supply. As a hybrid, the 230 V truck crane AK 37e can operate either in plug-in mode or use the truck's conventional PTO combustion engine for power supply.

The AK 52 truck crane invites visitors to take a platform ride over the Munich trade show grounds. Converted into an aerial platform, up to six trade fair guests can enjoy the view in the hydraulically extendable and rotatable access platform which can be raised to 3.5 m. In addition to the most powerful Böcker truck crane AK 52 with payloads up to 12 t, the truck crane AK 42, will be on display on the open-air site. Being already presented a few months ago, this model impresses with its high operating speeds all crane functions as well as with a great lateral stability for heavy loads. A special highlight is its innovative boom geometry impressing with fully vertical main boom, 180-degree jib position and tower crane mode.

Trade show visitors from the scaffolding trade can look forward to the Super-Lift LX-PM rack-and-pinion hoist. As a construction hoist for personnel and material, it efficiently transports all materials, machines and up to 25 people to heights of up to 200 m. Another attraction for scaffolders is the Super-Lift MX-PM personnel and material hoist, which is being exhibited for the first time. With an enclosed cabin and very compact dimensions, it already fits  in the future elevator shaft during the construction phase.
