The new version of the website has been enriched with information and services reserved mainly for commercial operators and technicians. Brochures of Fassi products and those of competitors, along with images, technical sheets, a comparison program, FIP and assistance are just some of the information contained in the site.
A new website created and designed to combine several tools into a single interface. A unique and complete virtual archive where you can find and download every piece of information useful for all professionals, from sales and service assistants to technicians. The fassitech.com website has changed its look in order to provide additional services and surplus value to users. The new version of the site is divided into four main sections, some of which were already found in the previous version and others that have been added for the first time: Fassi Cat, the commercial area, the technical area and the applications area.
While the first area is accessible to everyone, the others can only be viewed with a different login and password, depending on the authorizations issued by the relevant offices. For the commercial and technical areas, the user id’s and passwords used up to today on the old version of Fassitech.com will continue to be valid. For the applications area and to use the Fassi Installation Program - FIP, users will need to request new access codes from the technical assistance office. As in the past, the site can be viewed in five different languages: Italian, English, Spanish, German and French. The main feature of the new version of the website, especially in the reserved area, is the main menu, which is still visible since it is positioned in the upper part of the interface. This will allow you to find in a quicker and more immediate way the tools Fassitech.com is equipped with.
The first area, accessible to all users, is Fassi Cat, already included in the previous version. From here it is possible to view the spare parts catalogue, the functions of which have remained virtually unchanged but whose graphics have been adapted to the new version of fassitech.com. Once you’ve entered this section you can select the different components (crane models, cranes not included in the range, hydraulic extensions, supplementary crossbeams, winches and various options) and the respective machines.
In terms of production processes, following these guidelines and always putting innovation first, at the core of its work method, the Fassi Group has made an important choice that goes against the tide in comparison with other competitors: making significant investments in automation over the years.
Unlike others who have decided to relocate their production abroad to countries with much lower labour costs, Fassi has invested several million Euros in new production systems. This strategy has allowed the Group to improve the quality of its products, optimise its resources and achieve a better price-quality relationship. The new systems ensure precise, constant and guaranteed results that only automation can deliver. Whereas before there were operators that welded, bent and cut one piece after another, day after day, in a repetitive and oftentimes alienating way, today these tasks are performed by machines.
With this significant initial investment, taking advantage of a wide range of economies of scale, the company based in Albino is able to bring its products to the market at highly competitive prices without compromising on the quality that has always represented Fassi’s style. Although innovation has brought significant surplus value, for Fassi human capital continues to be an indispensable resource. For the company automation means giving more value to its employees that, thanks to this policy, perform many activities in which “man” makes the difference. For quite some time the Group has been investing in automation using a variety of automated systems.
In particular, in recent years the plant has been equipped with a welding system with an automated warehouse, a cutting laser, a robotic system for welding extension booms, a welding system of hexagonal beams equipped with an automated warehouse and finally, a welding system for supplementary crossbeams.
Fassi SmartApp, Be smart!Now your crane interacts at a touch. Fassi is the first company in the lifting sector to combine the intelligent use of boom cranes with latest-generation smartphones
One of the main innovation guidelines followed by the Italian company based in Albino includes the development of advanced man-machine interaction systems, known as Human Machine Interface (HMI).
Its importance lies in the fact that, nowadays, the systems available onboard the cranes, often connected to radio controls, contain plenty of information, some of it requiring great attention by the operator when it comes to fast and accurate machine operation.
Even more so, in the near future we will be witnessing a further increase in the number of available functions tied to new systems, for which acceptance by the operator will depend mostly on the operator’s “familiarity” with the feedback received.
Another important aspect is the tendency of more and more information that needs to be given to the operators so that they can have proper control over the machine. These considerations have led to the development of Fassi Human Machine Interface, aimed at making cranes as “easy to use” and “safe to use” as possible, maximizing system efficiency for quick information reading and interpretation, also in view of future growth in managing the set of available systems.
This principle represents the origin of “Fassi SmartApp”, a revolutionary system patented at the international level thanks to which a crane can “communicate” with a latest-generation smartphone.
The most interesting characteristics of the “Fassi SmartApp” include the possibility to use remote assistance through Black Box diagnostics.
As a whole, it is much more than a simple “APP” for smartphones, since it can also be used for the following operations: setting the parameters of the radio control levers, quickly analyzing and evaluating the crane utilization statistics, consulting the Fassi Geo Locator in order to contact the Fassi assistance centres quickly and dialogue with the crane, using the quicker and more spectacular graph display to read data instead of the traditional radio control.
New FassiFASSI F110B.1 and F110B.2: THE EVOLUTION OF SPECIES
An extremely successful crane that introduces the system with 1 and 2 lifting links to further improve performances and efficiencyThe main innovations in this new project complete the offer made by Fassi in this particular crane segment, with the customer being given the chance to configure the machine for all its possible functions (except continuous rotation). Basically, the introduction of a single or double piston rod mechanism allows the customer to take advantage of the new features available on this model, and to choose the best solution based on the type of work that needs to be done.
The F110B is a light-duty crane, in the medium segment of Fassi’s small range. It is a reference crane in the 11 ton/m sector, with significant sales volumes. The project underscores Fassi’s aim to launch this range on the market with three types of geometric development: “.2” “.1” “.0” (2, 1 or 0 lifting links) for all types of jobs. In fact, the different solutions give the product “scalable” functions, starting from “.0”, for typical use with hydraulic tools, up to “.2”, which features a lifting movement suited to various kinds of complex operations. The new F110B cranes also offer better performances even from a weight standpoint (as they are lighter), yet maintain the same work characteristics. Thanks to its five outrigger booms, higher outreach performances are achieved.

Fassi loader crane unloads Chinese telescope
A FASSI CRANE "F155A.0.22 ACTIVE" MODEL POSE THE FIRST CHINESE TELESCOPE AST3-1 IN ANTARCTICA THAT IT WILL FORM THE CHINESE GIANT SOLAR TELESCOPE (CGST)
The efficiency of the Fassi cranes in difficult weather conditions is always an essential component to assess their technological quality. But when these conditions become extreme, almost “impossible”, the climate is transformed into a veritable open-air laboratory for testing the reliability of machines and systems developed by the Italian manufacturer.
