Tower cranes are a modern form of balance crane that consist of the same basic parts. Fixed to the ground on a concrete slab (and sometimes attached to the sides of structures), tower cranes often give the best combination of height and lifting capacity and are used in the construction of tall buildings.
The most basic type of mobile crane consists of a truss or telescopic boom mounted on a mobile platform — be it on road, rail or water. Common terminology is conventional and hydraulic cranes respectively.
Self Erecting Cranes
Self erecting cranesSimple, rapid and entirely autonomous, Self-Erecting Cranes are especially suited to construction sites that are of a short duration and require frequent to infrequent operations.
Electric Luffing Cranes
An early form of level-luffing gear was the “Toplis” design, invented by a Stothert & Pitt engineer in 1914. The crane jibs luffs as for a conventional crane, with the end of the jib rising and falling.
