Since the year 1963, Linden Comansa has made roughly 16,000 cranes. Within Sweden during 1977, the very first Linden 8000 cranes were made by Linden-Alimak. These units are considered to be some of the very first Flat-Top cranes used for construction reasons. The actual idea of Flat-Top did not change until the Linden Comansa company adopted this particular description during the early part of the 1990s. The term Flat-Top crane is now a universally excepted term.
The flat top crane design is still manufactured by the company. They also make the LC 500 Series, which is an update from their well-known NT Series. Comansa introduced the newest crane technology and the flat-top design. This series features a range of flat-top cranes made up of 4 kinds. These flat-top cranes have lengths from 35 meters up to 50 meters and provide a maximum jib-end load of one ton.
Starting in the summer of the year 2008, the LC 1100 Series offers lots of innovations in comparison to the previous crane series that Linden Comansa provides. Some of the biggest changes are outlined below. These adaptations and improvements made to the design have greatly improved the comfort, capacity and efficiency of these equipments, making them a highly popular piece of machinery. The technology has grown and the business takes pride in offering their clients a reliable, durable, quality equipment which is really successful in a lot of different environments.
The new LC 1100 series keeps the Flat-Top system in place, while still being much easier to erect. This is due to pre-installing the slewing and hoisting systems, along with the electric cabinets. These are installed at the factory and then delivered to the client. In addition, in comparison to the prior series, the lesser weight of the slewing structure makes the crane a lot easier to erect overall.
