New small bridge inspection from Moog
Moog's MB1 50 designed for operation on small bridges
The new crawler version of MOOG’s MBI 50 unit has been designed especially for operation on narrow pedestrian bridges.
With the load distribution on two crawlers it is possible to stick to a minimum area load even though the overall width is 1.6m and the weight 3,000kg. This makes it possible to work on bridges that are rated low-weight only.
The assembly is fast and uncomplicated requiring one person and a few minutes of time to complete.
The system has two versions of assembly – standard and an option where the platform can be rotated 90 degrees downward before the tower is buckled in sideways. Using this version the unit can be deployed on very small bridges or between aerial lines. The 5m platform has a load capacity of 300kg, making the unit suitable for inspection work as well as smaller repair work.
