TEREX CORPORATION MARKS THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ACQUISITION OF THE MONTCEAU-LES-MINES FACILITY BY FINISHING THE 3,000TH REACH STACKER

Double celebration at Terex Corporation (Terex): On May 20, team members at the French Montceau-les-Mines site celebrated the 20th anniversary of Terex acquiring the facility. At the same time, the 3,000th Terex reach stacker from Terex Port Solutions (TPS), a new Terex® LiftaceTM 5-31 stacker, left the assembly line. "We are celebrating two milestones in the history of Terex," said Chairman and CEO Ron DeFeo. "I would like to thank our customers and team members, who have made Montceau-les-Mines what it is today: a site where innovation is built on proven expertise and cooperation."

Acquisition meant entry into the port technology business
For port technology in particular, the French site, located north of Lyon, has assumed a central role within Terex. Steve Filipov, President Terex Material Handling & Port Solutions, said: "It was with the acquisition of the site 20 years ago that we first entered the port technology business. At that time, Montceau-les-Mines manufactured all-terrain cranes and reach stackers. These reach stackers were our first machines for terminal operators on coasts and rivers. Since then, Terex has extended its portfolio and with the TPS business group created in 2012, we are now a leading provider of system solutions for the ports of the world." Represented in all regions of the world, TPS offers customers solutions across the port and for all development phases of their terminal. The expertise at sites that have been established for many years, such as Montceau-les-Mines, is decisive for this success.

Competence center for reach stackers and compact all-terrain cranes
Montceau-les-Mines is a global Terex competence center in the area of all-terrain cranes with a lifting capacity of up to 100 t and also for reach stackers. Development teams in both fields are international and in constant contact with team members around the globe. Cranes from Montceau-les-Mines, such as Terex® Challenger cranes, are of a compact design and offer productive and safe working. The Terex Liftace 5-31 reach stacker from TPS is the first representative of the Terex new-generation lift trucks and was officially launched in April this year. It is designed primarily for maritime and river ports and is therefore part of the TPS portfolio. The fact that it is manufactured in Montceau-les-Mines, a facility of the Terex Cranes business segment, is part of the complementary philosophy of Terex.

 

DEMAG TECHNOLOGY USED AT A BAR IN RIBEIRÃO PRETO

With a broad range of applications, the brand's products have been used to build a retractable roofing structure at one of the fanciest bars in town.

Thanks to Demag drive technology a newly opened bar and events' space Doppo Lavoro, in Ribeirão Preto in Brazil, could be transformed into an open air arena. Inaugurated in November, 2014, Doppo Lavoro provides over 250 national and imported wine labels, two VIPs areas (meeting room and brotherhood room), ambient music and retractable roofing, which was enabled through Demag technologiy.

Conceived by Tullio Santini Jr. and Gui Calil, owner-partners, the project encompasses a 200 m2 area with a 1,330 kg retractable roofing structure. To make the installation feasible, the Movequip team, representative of Demag products for São Paulo state recommended the production of Two Demag wheel blocks DRS 112, two Demag offset geared motores, one panel for power supply and another one for power distribution, and a control panel to handle the part.

"We wanted to have a full roofing cover to create a differential for our business. Fortunately, Movequip could make this unique project come true in Ribeirão Preto," adds Tullio Jr.

Using standardized components with a broad variety of combination possibilities among them for the most varied types of applications, the Demag team achieved the excellency in the project, providing user-friendliness to assembly and maintenance, besides replacement parts' availability.

"The application of the product is a differential for this type of business. We are glad we could make this project, as it proves that Demag is capable of providing custom solutions to meet each client's needs. The full opening of the restaurant roofing is the differential of the house and a pioneer feature across the towns in the region," says Daniel Vogas commercial technical manager from Movequip.

TEREX UNIVERSITY MOBILE TRAINING UNIT LAUNCHED WITH SESSIONS AT TOYOTA

 In March, 2015, Terex University Mobile Training Unit held its first session at Toyota's facility in Porto Feliz, São Paulo State. The training addressed operation techniques for overhead cranes, as per Normative Rule # 11, as a result of a Demag equipment the company has recently purchased.


During the simulation, eight professionals were simultaneously trained. The mobile facility allows for up to fifteen participants, though. "With the overhead cranes simulator we can perform training on how to operate the equipment and, in addition, we may take other Demag equipment for maintenance training in the van", explained Fábio Camargo, Technical Coach of Terex Material Handling.


This training session was relevant for Toyota, since the company could not make their own bridge crane available for training for a long time. Therefore, the bridge crane simulator in our van was useful for operators as it helped them to be better prepared to work with the actual equipment in the factory.


"Our focus is to provide professional refreshers and qualification training for our clients and partners' team members who are not familiar with the operation of bridge cranes, thus providing them with a first contact through the simulator - which increases safety levels", as explained Camargo.
Terex Latin America has been consistently investing in their post-sales area to provide Terex, Genie and Demag customers with improved services. In 2014, the company launched the Minha Terex (My Terex) program in the region, focused on the customer services area. Since then, we have witnessed major advances such as the Terex University Training Center, in Cotia, the call center, the equipment showroom, the creation of Minha Terex Operational Control Center and, more recently, the acquisition of the training and services van to remotely service clients all over Brazil.

Gilley Crane’s first lift with the Terex® Explorer 5800 crane is at the Jack Daniel Distillery

LYNCHBURG, Tenn., USA, January 7th, 2015 - The Jack Daniel's name stands for dedication to craftsmanship and quality. When ordering a Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey, you know you are getting a high quality product.
The same is true for Gilley Crane Rigging and Lifting of Manchester, Tenn. The company stands for quality service by trained craftsmen, safe lifting practices and the high quality crane and rigging services with the most modern crane equipment on the market.
The two recently came together when Gilley Crane was tasked with lifting two boilers weighing more than 100,000 lb (45,360 kg) each at the Jack Daniel's Distillery in Lynchburg. The challenging lifts required each boiler to be lifted twice at a 28-ft (8.5-m) radius in a confined space. "At one end of the lift, we had to work around a fenced-in lot nearby other equipment, while at the other end we had to work around rebar sticking up around the boiler base," explains Gilley Crane Owner, Robert Gilley.
Working in the confined area, Gilley Crane's crew needed a compact crane with excellent maneuverability. Having only a two-day window to complete the project, the company needed a crane that offered fast roading, quick setup and efficient operation.
Gilley Crane selected a new crane from its fleet for the lift, one in which the brand name and team behind it stands for quality and service. It was the company's new Terex® Explorer 5800 all terrain crane, purchased from its Terex Crane distributor in Cleveland, Tenn., Renegar-Driggers Machinery Co, Inc. "I have bought a lot of equipment in my life, and I can't be any happier with the level of service and support provided by Terex and Renegar-Driggers," says Robert Gilley.

The Right Fit
The Terex Explorer 5800 all terrain crane is designed to quickly travel the streets and highways of many market around the world. It can be configured so that its five-axle chassis meets stringent axle loads of less than 20,000 lb (9000 kg) per axle. The crane also features a compact, 43.3-ft (13.2-m) carrier length and 4-ft (1.2-m) front overhang. Its narrow 9.8-ft (3.0-m) width enables the 245 US-ton (220-t) capacity class crane to transport without restriction.
Gilley Crane's four-man crew quickly roaded the Explorer 5800 crane plus full counterweight the 30 mi (48.3 km) from its Manchester yard to Lynchburg. It required just four additional transports to move the crane's 154,800 lb (70,2 kg) of counterweights to the project site.


The Explorer 5800 all terrain crane transports with its standard 229.7-ft (70-m) telescopic main boom installed, which provided quick on-site setup and offered more than enough length for the boiler lifts. To improve on-site equipment setup, this Terex all terrain crane self-rigged its counterweight panels. "In total, it took us about 1.5 hours for crane setup before we were ready to work," says Gilley Crane's Project Manager, Scott Peterson.

The unique Explorer 5800 crane boasts another exclusive feature that boosts efficiency over the road and at the jobsite: the Terex single-engine concept to power both chassis and crane operation. "The engine offers intelligent power management that selects the best performance for all load cycles," explains Terex Cranes' Regional Business Manager, Steve Ake. "With only one engine, we reduce crane weight, daily maintenance time and long-term operating costs."
Powered by a 12.7-liter, 550-hp (405-kW) Tier 4F (Euromot Stage IV) engine, the crane has the power to quickly make it to the jobsite at speeds reaching 53 mph (85 km/hr). Once on-site, engine speed and power is reduced to 1600 RPM and 275 hp (205 kW) respectively, providing ample capacity for proper crane operation, while reducing fuel consumption when compared to two-engine cranes. "The fuel efficiency and savings are unreal," says Peterson. Robert Gilley adds, "The one-engine concept works really well for us and provides plenty of power for both roading the crane and powering the lifting operations."


In total, the project required eight lifts to move and place the two boilers and bases. The 20-foot-tall by 25-foot-long (6.1-m by 7.6-m) boilers and 10,000-lb (4,5-kg) bases were first placed onto trailers and moved approximately 200 yd (187.9 m) to their final location. Working with 55.4 feet (16.7 m) of main boom at a 28-ft (8.5-m) radius, the Explorer 5800 crane delivered more than enough capacity to lift and position the boilers and bases.
"The space we had to work with left very little room to maneuver the crane, but the steering on the Explorer 5800 is more advanced than what we've seen from any other crane on the market," says Gilley. The Explorer 5800 crane offers six steering modes, including off-wall and crab, to deliver a turn radius of 37.3 ft (11.4 m), improving on-site maneuverability. "The speed with which it crab steers is very efficient," adds Peterson. "It's mind-boggling at how quickly and easily it steers and transitions between the different steering selections."


All crane operations, from steering to boom settings, on the Explorer 5800 crane are managed by the IC-1 computer system. "The IC-1 system," says Ake, "features touchscreen operation and intuitive controls to make it easy on the crane operator. Plus it stores all the load charts for quick access and confident operation." Gilley adds, "Our operators can quickly pick up crane operation because of the IC-1 controls."
Within two days, Gilley Crane's crews transported the Terex Explorer 5800 crane to the Jack Daniels' Distillery, rigged it for the project, performed the picks and transported it back to the Manchester yard. "This crane is totally out-of-the-box," mentions Peterson. "Our operators are extremely pleased with its performance, and everyone who has seen it work is impressed with its capabilities."


About the Terex® Explorer 5800 all terrain crane

The 5-axle, 220 tonne (245 US ton) capacity class Explorer 5800 all terrain crane is designed for worldwide operation. Dimensions, variable axle load configurations, axle pair space, overhang, boom off solution, dolly operation: all variables have been taken into account for worldwide roadability.


The crane is designed so that the 70.2 t (77.4 US t) counterweight can be automatically rigged and no additional part is wider than 2.5 m (8.2 ft).
A major feature of the Explorer 5800 crane is the single engine concept. Powered by a Scania 405kw/550hp engine complying with Euromot IV/Tier 4F directives, the crane employs the latest engine management system to enhance performance for both road travel and lifting. Fuel efficiency is provided using stop/start technology for the upper cabin and engine remapping depending on what type of operation is being performed, lifting or travelling.
The latest Terex IC-1 touch screen control system, along with radio remote control, makes rigging and on-site operation safe and efficient. The control system provides the operator with accurate load moment measurements and wind speeds and simplifies the way the crane operates when handling even the most demanding of lifts. Designed to operate globally, the system includes 14 pre-programmed languages.
Also new is the 2.85 m (9.35 ft) walk-through carrier cabin with air conditioning, which is ergonomically designed to enhance the operator's day-to-day experience.

TEREX PORT SOLUTIONS SCOOPS TWO PRIZES AT IBJ AWARDS

Terex® Quaymate M50 mobile harbour crane is Crane of the Year - Dr. Mathias Dobner honored

Rotterdam/Düsseldorf, 24 November 2014 - Terex Port Solutions (TPS) has been successful in two categories of this year's awards, presented by the leading international specialist magazine International Bulk Journal (IBJ). In Rotterdam, TPS received the Crane of the Year award for its Terex® Quaymate M50 mobile harbour crane, launched in spring 2014. In addition Dr. Mathias Dobner, Vice President Development, Engineering & Operation at TPS, was named Personality of the Year. Since 2009, IBJ has presented these awards. They are considered some of the most sought-after prizes in the bulk materials handling market.

Terex mobile harbour crane for small terminals impresses
By awarding a prize to TPS for its Terex Quaymate M50 mobile harbour crane, IBJ has recognized a cargo handling machine for a new target group. The crane is designed as an entry model. It enables predominantly small sea and river ports to change from the non-port machines often used to dedicated equipment for professional handling of all cargo types. The new crane is equipped with a motor grab for effective bulk handling. Klaus Peter Hoffmann, Vice President & Managing Director Terex Port Solutions, also sees the IBJ Award as a confirmation of the customer-driven strategy of TPS: "Like the Model 2 mobile harbour crane in 2012, the Terex Quaymate M50 crane from TPS makes mobile harbour crane technology available to new customer groups. In Asia particularly, many terminals are still working with outdated equipment, not designed for continuous handling in a rough maritime environment. We now offer terminals like these a cost-effective and robust crane that helps with continuous loading and unloading on inland barges and coasters."

Shaping the industry since 1996
Dr. Mathias Dobner described it as a great honor to receive the IBJ Personality of the Year Award. IBJ presents this award every year to a personality who has shaped the bulk handling sector. In his acceptance speech, Dobner, who joined TPS in 1996, underlined the importance of the teamwork of all players: "Those who wish to be successful in our business need strong relationships with customers, technological partners and Terex team members. In the port industry, and particularly in bulk handling, all those involved are interlinked." As an example of this type of successful teamwork, Dobner mentioned floating cranes from TPS: "Our floating cranes were created at the suggestion of a customer with whom we worked to develop these machines. We have since supplemented our floating cranes with smart crane features such as verifiable weighing systems, which originate, in turn, from proven technology providers."
