The CIFA range of truck pumps and concrete pumps includes 20 metre to 80 metre models.
The many possible configurations of the booms ensure optimal operation, great versatility, and allow the operator to reach any part of the construction yard, including hard-to-reach areas, as well as fast manoeuvring.
The number of sections and the degree of opening make it possible to carry out operations quickly at the construction site, with an ideal configuration for road travel: in fact, despite having very long booms, the vehicle is compact and easy to manoeuvre.
The booms of the truck pumps and concrete pumps have joints with through-pins and connecting rods as well as outer triangles. This design ensures increased resistance, durability and greater rigidity, which makes them more stable and precise when moving horizontally and vertically. Besides ensuring user comfort, CIFA solutions are also very easy to maintain. To make it more easily accessible, the turret of the booms has also been lightened by placing the piping line on the outside, which makes maintenance activities much easier.
The thickness and size of the boom sections of CIFA models vary even along the same section. This construction technique, which involves the use of butt welding, ensures that the sections are balanced, lightened where possible and reinforced where needed, without using added material. This results in a unique, sleek and high-tech design.
All structural parts (sections, triangles, connecting rods, etc.) are calculated through fatigue analysis using finite element method (FEM) numerical simulation. The prototypes are cycled on a fatigue test bench (TEC) that is specially developed to simulate and guarantee a longer average service life than that of a concrete truck.
