Maxim Crane Works, the global crane giant, says its new crane, the Maxim X1, has a range of “over 500km” and can lift 3,000 tonnes.
But a new report has highlighted how much that range could increase to around 7,000 kilometres, potentially opening up the possibility of a $10-billion market.
The report by research firm Wood Mackenzie, says the Maxis X1 is the fastest and most capable crane to date.
The X1’s design is based on a previous crane design developed by Maxis, which was used to build the previous world’s fastest crane.
The Maxis design is designed to be used in the production of the next generation of the crane, which is set to be unveiled in the next few months.
But it’s also being developed for the export market, which has been under pressure in recent years from a rising tide of container ships.
In its latest report, Wood Mackenzys chief executive, Ian Haggerty, said the Maxes X1 was capable of lifting “up to 4,000 tons of material at a time”.
The Maxims X1 has a capacity to lift up to 3,100 tonnes.
The new Maxis crane can lift 4,200 tonnes and weigh up to 5,500 tonnes, according to Wood Mackells research.
The previous Maxis Crane is also being used in Australia, where the Maxims are based, and is also capable of carrying up to 2,500 metric tonnes of cargo, Woodmacles chief executive officer, David Phelan, said.
The world’s largest crane is the Maximo, which can lift up 2,000 metric tonnes and carry up to 4 million tonnes of materials.
Maxim crane owner Maxim has said the new Maxim can lift a load of up to 11,000 kilograms and weigh a load up to 7,500 kilograms, and will deliver a total payload of 6.5 million kilograms.
It’s been a year since the company announced the news that Maxim would be moving its operations out of China, with the company saying it was taking the decision to “deliver more value for our customers in China and other emerging markets”.
The new crane will be unveiled at the London Olympics in 2020, with Maxim already planning to begin exporting its technology to the UK and Australia.
In the meantime, Maxim is currently building a factory in Shanghai to produce the crane’s components, but Mr Phelans said that could soon be moved to the USA, with a factory already in operation in South Carolina.
Mr Haggerts report also said Maxim’s new X1 would be capable of handling a total of 4,400 tonnes of freight and a total cargo load of more than 10 million kilograms, with its maximum operating load of 7,700 tonnes.
Maxima’s new Maxi crane is set for launch next year Maxim plans to begin testing the new X 1 at the Dubai International Container Port in 2021.
The crane, said to be the world’s biggest, will be able to lift a payload of up 2.8 million kilograms and be able carry a total load of 10 million tonnes.
It will also be able lift and move 4.3 million metric tonnes.
“The Maxi X1 will be the largest crane to be built anywhere in the world, and the world is rapidly moving towards an age of low-cost logistics and mass-transport infrastructure,” Mr Phetsell said.
“This means the need for a truly innovative new technology will never be greater.”
The report noted that Maxima has already developed the technology and technology partners, including Chinese state-owned companies and other companies, that can use the technology in the future.
It said Maxima had built up a network of suppliers in China to support its production of high-quality components for the X1 and has been in close contact with leading industry experts in the field of high performance and manufacturing.
The company has said it expects to deliver a new Maxima crane to the Port of Dubai in 2021, which will then be delivered to its American production facilities in South Charleston, South Carolina, by 2019.
The company said it was now considering a range, from “low-risk, low-profit” to “high-risk and high-profit”. “
We look forward to building on our experience with the Maxima to further accelerate the development of this new technology, and to enable the Maxi community to benefit from its potential for the future.”
The company said it was now considering a range, from “low-risk, low-profit” to “high-risk and high-profit”.
The company is also planning to launch its first delivery from South Carolina to Australia in 2020.
