Allied Marine Crane is proud to announce its newest product addition to its suite of crane equipment. Allied has taken its tried and proven A-Frame and enhanced it with a number of innovative features that will drastically improve the safety and capability of the marine research industry. Allied has incorporated proprietary technology to allow the main cross beam to rotate freely as the A-Frame deploys, keeping the load and lighting properly oriented throughout the entire range of motion. This technology allows for incorporation of a large mounting surface on the cross beam utilizing a standard UNOLS bolt pattern to mount an unlimited array of scientific equipment and/or hoisting apparatuses. The Allied A-Frame also possesses a unique maintenance pin design that creates an additional degree of freedom to provide an unprecedented 172 degree range of motion. The innovation continues into the details of the machine with rope pass-throughs for tugger winches that maximize the operating envelope of the A-Frame and available electrical outlets at the cross-beam for ease of powering equipment. Allied Marine Crane prides itself in providing the industry’s premiere specialized heavy lift equipment and is investing heavily into new developments.
