stand-saie-2012-fassiA futuristic structure for the reception, offices and multimedia stations at the Fassi stand. On display, a Man truck fitted with a Fassi F1950 crane.

A surface area of 400 square meters, 225 of which are taken up by the original and eye-catching structure in PVC with weft in inflatable nylon thread that aims to become the distinguishing mark of Fassi Gru at all tradeshows in future years. This is an original nylon material supported by a light alloy structure that will house the reception and the offices, as well as the multimedia stations that illustrate the production and operation of Fassi cranes.
Once again, a cutting-edge choice that underscores the company’s desire to invest and travel down new paths, a desire that has always distinguished the doings of Fassi Gru.

In addition to the two new products, the F110B crane and the SmartApp, the visitors’ attention at the Fassi stand will certainly be captured by the Man truck fitted with a Fassi F1950 crane, the largest machine to be produced by the Bergamo-based company. This truck is owned by the Austrian company Spiegl, which chose this set-up to further expand the lifting capacities of its fleet; in fact, the combination Man-Fassi F1950RA.2.28 can reach a horizontal reach of 45 m, a loading moment up to 138 ton/m for a self-weight of about 15 tons. The operator can thus lift weights of up to 6 tons but, by suitably positioning the lifting hook, the lifting capacity can reach 40 tons.

Five additional models will complete the display at the stand: F38A Active (lifting capacity 3.47 t/m and hydraulic reach 7.55 m), F55A Active (lifting capacity 4.99 t/m and hydraulic reach 9.25 m), F65AC Active (lifting capacity 6.01 t/m and hydraulic reach 8.20 m), F80AC Active (lifting capacity 8.26 t/m and hydraulic reach 9.40 m) and F455RA e-dynamic (lifting capacity 43.43 t/m and hydraulic reach 20.80 m).

Visitors will certainly be curious about the presentation of the first prototypes on a 1:50 scale of the Fassi F1100RA, which is offered to collectors and aficionados in combination with vehicles of all brands starting from 2013, even with different models and fittings of the same brand.
Fassi-SmartApp-System-twoFassi Gru is the first company in the lifting sector tocombine the intelligent use of boom cranes with latest-generation smartphones.

Fassi SmartApp is an integrated system of data reading and collection in real time that can carry out remote diagnostics on crane operation and is compatible with the Android system. Using the Fassi SmartApp makes it possible to optimize crane capabilities through perfect knowledge of the utilization characteristics and maintenance times.
The Radio Remote Control section displays the reaction thresholds of the remote control, with the possibility to change its sensitivity: the main booms can be set by adjusting the response of the control levers: simply change the working curves of the individual elements. By doing so, you can adapt the sensitivity of controls to the operator’s individual needs in remote.
The Black Box key is not just a log of the operations carried out, as it also serves as a communication tool with the Fassi assistance network.
Analyzing and comparing the utilization characteristics of the crane helps to better understand its use and allows the scheduling and management of maintenance costs with better performances for a longer time.
Moreover, should the crane suddenly stop working, the Geo-Locator function finds the nearest service centre and, through the Black Box, the remote diagnostics procedure is activated, storing data and any alarms in a file that can be sent to Fassi’s service department through an e-mail from the smartphone, thus providing correct and accurate information about the detected malfunctions in order to arrange for fast repairs.
Thanks to the user-friendly menu, it is easy to access the various sections, switching with just a few touches from the collection of data, also expressed in graphs for quick reference, to the controls adjustment section. Moreover, you can also activate certain crane functions from the smartphone, such as the  XP, or of the vehicle, such as turning the engine on and off and changing its speed.
This system originates from the Human Machine Interface (HMI) philosophy, to confirm the constant push towards innovation by Fassi’s R&D Department, with the involvement of Milan’s Polytechnic Institute.
New-Fassi-crane-model-F110B-oneA crane that literally revolutionizes Fassi’s offer in the 10 ton/m range, allowing customers to configure and choose their crane depending on the job to be done.

A significant expansion in the 10 t/m segment which, in the Fassi Gru offer, is considered as medium segment in the small range in terms of lifting capacity, yet very important in terms of sales volumes.
The main novelty is the adoption of a lifting link at the articulation between the column and the main jib (F110B.1) and, if necessary, a second lifting link (F110B.2) between the main jib and the secondary jib. The offer will also include a model with no lifting links, identified by the acronym F110B.0, which will replace the well-known and highly appreciated F110A.0.
The project underscores the company’s intention to place this crane on the market with three types of technological solutions, in order to meet all operating needs in the best way possible.

In fact, customers will be able to configure the crane based on their specific needs and for all possible functions (excluding continuous rotation). Moreover, the introduction of the single or double lifting link allows customers to take advantage of the additional and new capabilities offered by this model.

New-Fassi-crane-model-F110B-two- new F110B features improved performances compared to the previous F110A.0, specifically:
• weight reduced by 20%;
• hydraulic reach increased by 15% with the development of the .25 version;
• maximum load increased by 65% at the mobile hook (in the version with two lifting links);
• combination of the hydraulic extension on the .24 version too.
All this translates into a series of advantages for the operator, who can count on improved performances both in terms of dynamic lifting and of static capacities on the lifting curves. It is also possible to have rated configurations in horizontal with no angle of the main jib and the maintenance of rated loads even with the “Prolink” activated.
The new F110B.1 and F110B.2 cranes are available in five versions for both ranges, identified by the numbers .21 to .25, which correspond to the number of hydraulic booms (from one to five); the reach ranges from the 5.7 metres of the .21 version to the 14.1 metres of the .25 version, while the lifting capacity varies from 10 t/m of the .21 version to 8.9 t/m of the .25 version.
stand-fassi-saie-2012Fassi Gru spa will be at the 48th Edition of the SAIE with a futuristic stand and two important new products: the Fassi F110B crane and the Fassi SmartApp System for remote assistance

The presence of Fassi Gru, world leader in the lifting sector, at the SAIE, the International Building Exhibition scheduled to open its doors at the Bologna Fairgrounds from October 18th until the 21st, is a long-standing tradition. Now in its 48th edition, SAIE has always been a privileged venue for the construction world, a chance to present the most innovative solutions to the professionals working in this sector, which this year focuses on a topic of primary importance: building requalification in the urban and residential areas and environmental and energy sustainability. A strategic topic for the entire “Italy System” and for the economic revival of the building sector, well summarized in the presentation slogan of the 2012 edition: “Let’s rebuild Italy”.

The Fassi Gru stand, located in outdoor area 44, stands D22 and E11, will feature an original and innovative structure in PVC with weft in inflatable nylon thread that, in addition to its unquestionable and attractive visual appearance, underscores the company’s desire to travel down new paths, with the innovation of industrial products but also from an image standpoint. A clear wish not only to be there, but to play a starring role too.

The stand will display two absolutely new products: the Fassi F110B crane, which introduces the system with one or two lifting links (identified by the acronyms F110B.1 and F110B.2, respectively) to further improve performances and efficiency. Fassi SmartApp System, on the other hand, is the first remote assistance service from smartphone designed for the hoisting sector; an integrated system of data reading and collection in real time capable of carrying out remote diagnostics on crane operation.

The following models will also be on display at the stand: the F38A active, the F55A active, F65AC active, the F80AC active and the F455RA e-dynamic cranes, to represent Fassi’s production range, which includes over 60 models. At the centre of attention there will also be the imposing MAN truck, made by the Austrian company “Spiegl Transport”, fitted with a Fassi F1950RA.2.28 he-dynamic crane, with horizontal reach of more than 30 metres and a maximum load moment of 138 ton/m., innovation just a click away

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.
