Action Construction Equipment makes waves with the launch of NX360° slew-cum-pick ‘n’ carry crane.

ACE has recently expanded its product portfolio with the addition of next-generation innovative and intelligent cranes. The new NX-series multiactivity cranes include NX360° slew cum Pick ‘N’ Carry (20 tonne) crane, NXT-15T Pick ‘N’ Carry crane combined with a telehandler and NXP-15T Pick ‘N’ Carry crane cum aerial work platform (AWP), which is hydraulically operated from the top.  

The company recently launched its latest next-gen multi activity Crane NX360o in Mumbai. 
Tara Chand Logistic Solutions, a leading steel material handling and solutions provider, bought their first crane in the NX360o series. 
At a key handover ceremony held at the Steel Authority of India (SAIL) warehouse in Kalamboli, Rituraj Garg, Deputy General Manager (West), ACE, handed over key to the top officials of Tara Chand Logistic Solutions in the presence of the Chief Guest, VK Sahni, Regional Operations Manager, SAIL, and other officials from the steel major. Top officials from the Rashtriya Ispat Nigam (RINL), HCC, and other organisations were also present on the occasion.
Speaking on the occasion, Himanshu Agarwal, Director, Tara Chand Logistic Solutions, said, “I am delighted to be part of the NX360° launch by ACE today. We already own various best-in-class ACE equipment, and the addition of NX360° cranes has further strengthened our product portfolio.”
Addressing the gathering at the event, Sahni added, “Most of our products are routed through warehouses and we are happy to have a long-term association with Tara Chand Logistics.” 
With the launch of NX360° slew cum Pick ‘N’ Carry crane, ACE presents the future of cranes in India. The dual-purpose crane is a boon for various jobs at compact spaces such as metro-rail, bridges, flyovers and inside factories. It is loaded with safety features such as safe load indicator (SLI) with cut-off, reverse camera, failure protection and safety breaks on hoists. And, it offers the advantage of two distinct operations at the price of one machine, 50 per cent lower operation and maintenance cost as compared with similar slew cranes. 
The machines have undergone several extensive trials to meet the industry requirements of smart, efficient products. They can be used for various jobs such as loading, unloading, erection and placement of material at various project and construction sites such as industrial construction, refinery or petrochemical, railway or monorail, bridges or flyovers, power plants and in different industries such as chemical, power, fertilisers, cement, mining, CFS or ICD, fabrication, shipyards, defence, plywood, stone or granite, cable manufacturing and transmission towers.
During the launch, Manoj Agarwal, CGM (HED), ACE, said, “The company is actively working out strategies to build market presence as it gears up for increased business opportunities that the current infrastructure space holds. With the new launch, ACE plans to consolidate its share of cranes equipment market in India and extend its reach to other developing markets globally.”
