When we say TEC, we mean cutting-edge technology and maximum comfort thanks to assistance systems and across-the-board innovation. With TEC, PALFINGER is going far beyond the standard.
And that’s exactly what PALFINGER has done with the patented P-profile. For crane models of the TEC range, the tear-drop shape has replaced the classic hexagonal profile, as known from the SLD range. But this is not just some aesthetic gimmick, for the design is the result of the increasing importance of functionality: form follows function. The special tear-drop shape increases the torsional strength of the entire extension boom system – including the fly jib – and also enables an extremely lightweight design. So as you can see, innovation is not exclusively the domain of digitalization, but can also be found in steel construction, too.
But what makes the P-profile special? Not only is it especially lightweight and high in torsional strength, which helps to improve the transportability, robustness and service life of cranes. Also, it is extremely low-maintenance because it does not need to be lubricated between service intervals. Thanks to sliding elements made of special plastic (with self-lubricating properties) in combination with the tried-and-tested KTL coating, the boom system is not only exceptionally service- and environmentally friendly, but also extremely cost-effective in daily use: no contamination of the working area or cargo by dripping lubricant, no additional lubrication, a longer service life and reduced wear. And last but not least, it is also an elegant piece of design that emphasises the innovative appearance of the TEC cranes.
The P-profile is used on all models of the TEC range. A successful concept from PALFINGER that combines safety, performance, environmental protection, comfort, intelligence and design.
