The Codes used to Identify – Fassi Cranes
THE CODES USED TO IDENTIFY THE RANGE OF FASSI CRANES – A CODE THAT TELLS YOU EVERYTHING ABOUT THE CRANE TYPE AND VERSION
The first part of the series of codes used to identify a Fassi crane indicates the model, and refers both to the company itself (which is indicated with the “F” of Fassi), and to the most important element in terms of lifting capacity. the t/m value, expressed in K/Newton (in this case 240).
Immediately after the model code, we find a letter indicating the technological version to which the specific machine belongs. In this case we have technological version “B”. In place of the B, there might be a letter “A” or “D”: these letters express the various technological versions that have succeeded one another, in chronological order, from A to D. Alternatively, there might be F or FM (fixed, marine).
After the series code there may be other letters, indicating certain specific fittings on the machine. In this case the letter “C” indicates a short secondary boom. There might be other codes: one of these is XP, which indicates that the machine is fitted with the “Extra Power” device, this means it has a power reserve that cranes provide for users to help in more diffi cult working situations, resulting from heavy loads of extremely complex dynamic situations.
The penultimate set of codes indicates two extremely important aspects for the dynamic and working potential of the machine: the first number after the dot indicates the articulations, while the second number expresses the number of extending hydraulic booms. In this case there are 2 articulations and 4 extending booms.
Indications on the crane model and its main features are completed by the code indicating the presence (letter L) and type (number) of hydraulic jib with which the machine is fitted. In the case of the crane shown here, the number 21 indicates the model of jib, while the number 4 indicates the number of extending booms.
Indications on the hydraulic jib, with the model type and number of extending booms.
The first number after the dot indicates the number of articulations, the second number indicates the number of extending booms.
Part indicating special fittings: in this case the letter “C” refers to the short secondary boom.
The first letter after the model indicate which Fassi Series the machine belongs to.
This is the code indicating the model, and at the same time informing the user of the machine’s “lifting moment”, expressed in “K/Newton meter”.
