A Spider XTJ 32 to support the research


Ragno Palazzani XTJ 32 / C has become very useful to students of Politecnico in Milan, enabling them to easily
reach each side of the statue of San Carlo Borromeo located in Arona (NO).
The research on this majestic statue began this year, after the excellent conservation of the artefact, produced
in a copper and iron alloy, and which has been exposed to any kind of weather since 1698, has caused
enormous curiosity in the experts. This study will allow to get new information about the complex and will give
more help in the restoration process of the statue.
The students of Politecnico in Milano, together with Dr Goidanich, led the project, carrying out specific
analyzes of the metals of which the statue is made up.
Thanks to the hire company Ovieni & C., headquartered in Busto Arsizio (VA), which has 50 years of experience
in the rental of aerial platforms, the research staff has been able to find and use the machine to reach in a
quick and simple way also the highest point of the statue of San Carlo. The Palazzani XTJ 32 Spider Platform
combines the versatility of Spiders with the simplicity of maneuvering traditional self‐propelled vehicles. The
set up is simple and quick due to the simultaneous descent and the synchronized articulation of the stabilizers.
Transfers are also fast on high slopes, and soil‐specific pressure is extremely low thanks to the wide rubber
track. The controls are simple, quick and precise. Without the help of a spider platform, it would have been
impossible to carry out all the operations, as the statue is on top of a hill and inside a park: access by a truck
would have undoubtedly damaged the lawn on which it stands majestic.
