The innovations shown in Alba's stand have been the following:
HOIST FOR MATERIALS MC-250
We have developed a material hoist to assist the scaffolding in refurbishing works. This hoist spins off the rack pinion technology so to give an updated solution to similar traditional products based on a cable drum. Most of the problems in cable systems get outdone (tearings, cable rippings, high maintenance costs and stops for braking downs...) opposite an easy lubrication of the rack once in a while. Moreover, we have fit in this model MC-250 a last generation overspeed parachute as the one assembled in our range of hoists, that prevents the machine from a free fall in emergency situations and when it gets activated, it can also be reset in few seconds to get the machine back to work again, avoiding maintenance stops and risk situations such as taking down machines stuck in high positions.
MC-250 can be equipped on the same chassis with different cages for a most suitable use depending on the need of each work: cargo cage, accessible basket with 90 degrees rotation, high cage for struts, etc. This hoist reaches up to 40m and 250 kg of load capacity.

ELECTRIC HANGING SCAFFOLDING
ALBA has presented in this Exhibition the new motor AE500 for our range of electric hanging scaffolding with a capacity of 500 kg per motor and provided with 2 motors in platforms up to 16m long. We have designed this motor with the quality and durability that define our products, attaching to simplicity so important feature in mechanisms in order to avoid expensive maintenance costs and preserving as always maximum security standards as required in hoists for passengers and loads. In this sense, we have fit this scaffolding with a sophisticated electronic control to level the platform automatically, with a security block when surpassing prearranged inclination in lateral axis as well as horizontal axis providing also a second anti falling security cable. We have also broaden the optionals with extra high jibs, double deck platforms, corner platforms, etc that provides high versatility in use and exploitation of the scaffolding.

TRANSPORT PLATFORMS AND TWIN CABIN HOIST
These Transport Platforms are lifts for passengers and loads without a closed cabin, manufactured with a lower speed for transport of passengers as well as a tough roof to prevent from goods falling. These new product in the Spanish market is framed in the European standards and completely certified and have been named after load capacities PT-450, PT-1200 and PT-1800F. As the great bonus, each one of them is compatible with the 3 actual different sizes in mast in rack pinion range, completing the families of transport platforms, material hoists and passenger hoists. In this sense we have shown at Smopyc 2017 the platform model PT-1800F with passenger hoist EDC-2000 both cabins combined as twin on single mast M550, capable of managing two cabins up to 2000 Kg of capacity each one in working heights up to 250 meters. All these equipments are supplied with last generation overspeed parachute with auto recovery system as well as our electronic card so to confer a maximum comfort and security to users, standing out as new optional in the range the possibility to attach an automatic greaser device.
Additionally we have shown in this Smopyc Exhibition our range of table saws, cutters and benders for reinforcing bars, joint cutters, hand tools, winches, etc which have forged the high reputation of ALBA as a brand of reference in quality standards.
