Ethical business and sustainability are key differentiators today, and we work hard to offer our industry high-performance platforms with reduced environmental impact.
Operating with respect for human and environmental resources is one of the goals that sets us apart.
The production of electric platforms not only responds to market demands for indoor and outdoor use but also contributes to our mission of becoming more sustainable and reducing our negative impact. In this regard, we are proud to announce that we have taken another step forward, as the lithium batteries used in our platforms have become cobalt-free as of 1 January 2022!
In 2020, our cobalt-free battery partner, Aliant Battery, has embarked on a journey to offer the market a range of rechargeable lithium batteries based on lithium iron phosphate – LFP (LiFePO4) technology – that are completely cobalt-free.
This is a great achievement for our industry and we at AlmaCrawler are extremely excited for our supplier’s chosen path because cobalt-free batteries allow a significantly smaller environmental impact due to a reduction in mining activities, better end-of-life management of the batteries due to the ease of recycling the cells, and a reduction in the exploitation of the workforce, the vast majority of which takes place in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In fact, the main source of cobalt is the Democratic Republic of Congo, where there are unsafe and unethical mining practices, with thousands of workers, sometimes underage, working in harsh and dangerous conditions, constantly facing the possibility of death and serious injuries.
Andrea Artoni, General Manager, said: “We are pleased to be able to partner with forward-thinking partners. We carefully choose our supply chain by measuring our goals and expectations against those of our future partners. Aliant Battery has once again proven to the market they have a clear intention to invest in sustainability and innovation. We offer the market platforms with smarter, cleaner batteries in line with our ethical standards because of our commitments and we intend to study more and more sustainable solutions with our partners in the future”.

How to choose the right under 3000kg capacity Multi-Loader for the job
If you’re looking for an innovative solution for impossible situations, you are probably looking for an AlmaCrawler product. In the last 9 years, the company has become synonymous with unconventional, solution-driven product development and a go-to for highly technological access and material handling equipment. The Multi-Loader tracked transporter line added the compact ML 3.0 FX last autumn, with AlmaCrawler pushing the concept of tracked material handling further. But when it comes to choosing a Multi-Loader, which should you go with?
Where will I work?
The first question to ask is where will I need to work. The Multi-Loader line has various transport capacities – the original BL models: ML 2.5 and ML 6.0 both have AlmaCrawler’s unique, patented self-leveling technology that allows them to move loads on uneven terrain with slopes up to 20°, keeping loads safely at 0°. AlmaCrawler takes the idea of material handling to a whole new level thanks to the Multi-Loader’s capacity to provide a solution to what would normally look like an impossible situation.
The newly launched FX model – ML 3.0 FX, is a fixed frame ultra-compact tracked transporter aimed at operators who are looking for a powerful, fast, fits-through-a-door piece of equipment. The two super-quiet AC 5.3 kW engines and long tracks allow it to easily handle a variety of terrains.
Capacity and Load
One factor to consider is the weight of the load you will need to move. AlmaCrawler manufactures 3 types of Multi-Loaders and currently has more variety on the BL – self-leveling end.
The ML 2.5 allows you to move up to 2500 kg on a self-leveling flatbed (1110mm x 2400mm) on slopes up to 20° maintaining your load safely leveled.
The ML 3.0 FX has a transport capacity of 3000 kg on a fixed flatbed (760mm x 1620mm) but features telescopic extensions on each corner to allow you to change the shape of the flatbed to accommodate various types of loads – dramatically increasing the transport surface. No self-leveling technology here but max gradeability stands at 45°.
If you are looking to move 3000 kg or less your choices are either the ML 2.5 Performance or the ML 3.0 FX.
Speed and Power options
One of the most critical aspects to consider when choosing your material handling equipment is the time you will need to successfully perform the job. The ML 2.5 has a speed of 2.2 km/h but offers continuous self-leveling more suited for mixed indoor and outdoor use while transporting sensitive or easily unbalanced loads. The ML 3.0 FX has three-speed modes: ECO 1.2 km/h, STD 1.8 km/h and POW 4.2 km/h that can be easily selected from the remote controller to allow for flexibility.
Both are fully electric with the following features:
- The ML 2.5 Performance has 8 Lead Crystal 180 Ah 48v batteries that ensure a maximum 10h autonomy and a 110V or 220V electric pump for infinite working cycles. Recharge time? 5 hours.
- The ML 3.0 FX has two battery pack options: AGM or Lithium – and they are interchangeable and easily extractable – no more wasting time waiting for the equipment to charge – just substitute the depleted power pack with a new one!
Overall, much depends on your company’s needs. You should closely examine the specs of the Multi-Loader line, consider your load needs, your terrain type and surroundings and finally the time you have at your disposal to perform the job. No matter which you choose, though, rest assured you’re getting the best in innovative material handling!
Celebramos nuestro 9º aniversario con un nuevo vídeo de la empresa y grandes proyectos.
Echando la vista atrás a los fortuitos comienzos de AlmaCrawler -el 2 de abril de 2013- no podemos sino estar muy orgullosos de nuestro equipo, que ahora cuenta con más de 70 miembros. Además, nos sentimos honrados por el apoyo que hemos recibido de nuestros socios y clientes desde el día en que Andrea Artoni y Pietro Agosta del Forte decidieron crear la empresa por primera vez 9 años atrás.
Recordamos bien el primer elevador de tijera con orugas que dio la vuelta al mundo y que hemos presentado a todos los que han creído en nosotros y en nuestras ideas. Conocemos a todas las empresas -y a sus propietarios- que fueron las primeras en comprar un producto Almac (¡algunas de ellas siguen teniéndolo y utilizándolo hoy en día!) Y, finalmente, hoy podemos decir con confianza que nos hemos conseguido un lugar en el sector de los Access… ¡es extraordinario! A lo largo de los años, nuestra empresa ha crecido significativamente, ahora producimos 5 líneas de productos, tenemos 2 filiales -en el Reino Unido y Australia- y más de 38 distribuidores en todo el mundo.
En resumen, queremos darles las gracias porque nada de esto habría sido posible sin el apoyo, la voluntad, el entusiasmo y la diligencia de todo nuestro equipo.
Disfruta de nuestro nuevo vídeo corporativo, que fue realizado con la ayuda de todo el equipo de AlmaCrawler y viene a ser una pequeña sorpresa en la que hemos pensado durante los últimos meses. Nos divertimos mucho durante el shooting, así que no dejes de seguirnos porque en los próximos días también te presentaremos un episodio secreto.
We are excited to travel to London today to attend the IAPAs – our Billennium SpiderBoom B1890 Quick-Pro has been shortlisted for the IAPA Awards Product of the Year – Self Propelled Booms & Atrium Lifts category.
We’re looking forward to the event tomorrow, 10 March 2022, at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel London Kensington.
We at AlmaCrawler pride ourselves for pushing the boundaries of the status-quo in the aerial platform sector, investing significant resources in research and development with the aim of creating innovation that can simplify and make work safer at high altitudes.
The Billennium line – self-propelled aerial platforms with stabilisers – features two variations for the stabilisation system: VISUAL for products with fixed stabilisation and Quick-Pro for variable area stabilisation. This range of products features two innovative patent-pending systems:
- the first is the AWP system – Adaptive Working Performance – which, thanks to the presence of sensors on the stabilisers, allows the platform to detect the actual position of the machine in real time, automatically adapting its performance;
- the second system is called SPS – Self-Propelled skill System – and allows the platform to be used at height without the use of stabilisers, even on longitudinal slopes of up to 10°.
The Billennium B1890 Quick-Pro model differentiates itself by allowing the operator to easily and simply choose between six different configurations, depending on the space available to the operator. With a working height of 18m, a maximum outreach of 10.9m, and most importantly a travel height of 9m – the only stabilized telescopic tracked platform able to travel at height – it is certainly one of our most innovative products.
Officialy launched in April 2021, the Billennium B1890 EVO Quick-Pro has quickly attracted considerable interest from the industry, even winning the Italplatform Innovative Product award in October 2021, an award we at AlmaCrawler took great pride in.
While we impatiently wait for the IAPA Awards that will be held tomorrow, we can only thank all our customers and partners for the incredible support and interest dedicated to us and our products!
