We send a Maxilift ML380.4H crane to NASA
As it sounds, today we will talk about a very special delivery, for a very special costumer: the Madrid Deep Space Communication Complex (MDSCC) located in the municipality of Robledo de Chavela, this complex is part of a mundial network that has two other similar centers in Australia and California.
The work consisted in the delivery and mounting of a Maxilift ML380.4H crane which, as the main feature, has a winch with a 50 m long cable (this is one of the first modifications that had to be made to the crane for this particular customer, since Maxilift brand has only up to 30 m of cable in its standard range). We also highlight the new model of proportional radio control with belly box design that optionally replaces the traditional one with single hand design, this allows the operator an absolute control of the movements of the crane being much more manageable and ergonomic, all this fed with an electrohydraulic group that guarantees the total functionality of the crane even in the most adverse work circumstances.
The crane has been installed more than 40 meters high on the top of a 70 m diameter antenna, the largest in the complex, capable of turning on itself looking for the most suitable work angles. The main function of the crane will be to supply materials from the antenna dish to the sub-reflector for its maintenance and correct operation of the installation. To carry out these works we have had our technical staff from Transgruas branch in Madrid which have had to prove their extensive experience in the mounting of hydraulic machines and specific training such as high-altitude work, electrical risk and PEMP, since the working conditions of large difficulty and danger (if you do not have adequate means) they demanded it.
