In 1992, SCAIP started the production of special conversion kits, called the CPX Series, to transform pipelayers typically equipped with mechanical winches, into pipelayers with hydraulic winches.

These kits, once installed on the machine, allow the operator to manage the winches that control the winding of the ropes for the movement of the boom and for the descent/ascent of the hook through a single joystick.

The efficacy of SCAIP’s CPX Series conversion kits has been recognized by the most important international pipeline contractors, who have utilized SCAIP conversion kits to update and modernize their pipelayer fleets.
The success this product has received in the market is such that SCAIP has already built and sold over 1,000 conversion kits.

The integration of this product with the anti-tipping system by SCAIP, called ATP Plus, has increased the company’s success as a partner and supplier of advanced technological solutions in terms of reliability and safety in the pipeline world for all contractors.
