ATLAS AK 66.3E Folding Crane

Launched earlier this year at bau-

ma, Atlas GmbH has now taken

the latest self-loading truck crane

on to other events.

The AK 66.3E folding crane is

in the 62 kNm size-class with up

to four hydraulic extensions, neg-

ative boom angle, and a lifting

capacity of 360 kg at its maximum

reach of 11 meters.

At a reach of 1.74 meters, it

can lift 2.83 tons - a significant

load for this size crane.

The customer benefits from

the advantages of the negative

boom angle, which means even

in very difficult operating environ-

ments that require extreme manoeuvrability in the tight-

est spaces, the load can be set down or picked up very

precisely. This makes the crane extremely versatile, agile

and when coupled with the sensitive ergonomic radio

remote control.

The durable AK 66.3 E is already designed for appli-

cations with light grabs. When working on construction

sites, this advantage pays off by providing the fastest

possible working cycles.

In addition, the AK 66.3 E is equipped with wear-free

sensors, which reliably monitor the processes of the

safety features in accordance with EN12999. Due to the

optional wide stabilizer widths, it can be used on rela-

tively small trucks and also on larger vehicles with a very

short support width – so in every situation, secure and

stable operation is guaranteed.

All cranes of the E series come with a comprehensive

package of safety and comfort features for more efficient

and comfortable operation; this lets the operator focus

on his work instead of on complex machine operations

and adjustments.

In addition, ATLAS offers a wide range of optional

features for these cranes in order to adapt them indi-

vidually to many varied applications; among others,

these features include “automatic folding”.

Also new in the compay’s range of folding cranes is

the 152.3 - a folding crane with up to six extensions and

a maximum reach of 16.70 m. The usual wide range of

options are available such as additional functions for

grab and grab rotate and various stabilizing widths to

ensure excellent stability on even the trickiest of truck

Lighter And Faster Line Of Robotic Total Stations

Sokkia introduces the iX series. Featuring ultrasonic

technology, it is designed to provide the smoothest and

“ U l t r a s o n i c

technology is the

driving force for

the iX Series,”

said Ray Kerwin,

director of global sur-

veying products.

“ T h e

UltraSonic mo-

tors are the thin-

nest, lightest, and

most reliable on

the market. With a rotation speed of 150°

per-second, the iX series offers efficiency of a

single-operator robotic system and the power

of long-range reflectorless measurements of up

to 800 m and 6,000 m with a reflector.

The new UltraTrac technology gives increased

prism-tracking strength in all conditions. Advanced in-

strument algorithms deliver the confidence required to

move ahead.

The system is designed to be a compact solution and

is a third smaller and lighter than previous robotic Sokkia


Along with complementing Sokkia products, the in-

strument is designed with an “open platform” for addi-

tional compatibility with non-proprietary software and
