Amco Veba

Commercial Amco Veba

Commercial Truck Equipment (then Danco Equipment) introduced the Amco Veba line of articulating truck cranes into the Western Canadian marketplace in 1996, and has enjoyed great success in establishing the product as a superior quality, competitively priced solution for a wide range of applications.

Amco Veba has been designing and constructing articulating cranes since 1980. As a world-renowned articulating truck crane manufacturer, Amco Veba takes great pride in its extensive Quality Control System and capabilities, as well as its commitment to provide the highest levels of product support. Amco Veba is one of the very few manufacturers to own its hydraulic cylinder and metal-working supplier. This affords “state of the art” techniques in the manufacturing process.

Using a 3-dimensional CAD system, Amco Veba designs each individual component of the crane. It is able to manipulate the crane within the CAD system in order to test its movements and ensure it has functional geometry. By software analysis, every point of the crane is examined for stress to ensure each component is adequate. Data is sent to an outside engineering company for independent verification of calculations. Every new crane is designed in accordance with these established standards, to insure safety and compliance.
