They are used extensively throughout the construction, engineering, manufacturing and transportation industries, and they can be either mobile or fixed in terms of their design. Cranes are powered by gasoline engines or other hydrocarbon-fueled engines, hydraulics or electric batteries. There are several different varieties of cranes, all of which are designed for use in specific settings.

Each has varying qualities of load capacity, sizes, lifting height and span, and each is mounted on an automated vehicle or stationary structure.

They can be employed indoors in factories and on warehouse floors, on roads during construction projects, over railroad tracks for easy loading and unloading of cargo, at shipyards for cargo movement and in many other contexts.

Structural stability is key to safe and effective operation of all industrial crane systems. To prevent tipping or collapse, cranes are always built with clear load capacities and with systems of counterweights and other similar precautions if necessary.

Many different kinds of cranes are used today. Mobile cranes have proliferated greatly in response to the unique needs of some operations. Some mobile cranes can be truck-mounted and are able to travel on highways. Rough terrain cranes are able to maneuver on soft or uneven ground. Railroad cranes are capable of moving on train tracks.

Floating cranes can be attached to boats and float in water. Arial cranes can be attached to helicopters and are used in disaster situations along with a short list of highly specialized applications. Fixed cranes are not able to move but can carry heavier loads than mobile cranes and are much more stable.

Smaller workstation cranes like monorail, jib and stacker cranes are used in indoor facilities and perform repetitive materials transportation tasks in loading docks and manufacturing facilities.

They are free-standing, wall-mounted or ceiling-mounted. Larger outdoor cranes are mostly used in the construction of buildings and large structures like bridges or highway systems and large lifting applications like bulk-handling. Bridge, gantry and hoist cranes are larger fixed cranes, all of which also range in terms of their configurations and applications.

Gantry Crane

Gantry Crane

A gantry crane is an overhead crane that has an overhead beam supported by freestanding legs and moves on wheels, a track, or rail system carrying a bridge, trolley, and hoist. Workshops, warehouses, freight yards, railroads, and shipyards use gantry cranes as their lifting solution as a variation of overhead or bridge cranes...

Jib Cranes

Jib Cranes

A jib crane is a lifting device with an arm or boom that extends off the main body of the crane to provide extra reach and has a lattice design to lower the weight added to a load. The design of jib cranes allows them to work...

Overhead Cranes

Overhead Cranes

An overhead crane is a type of heavy duty machinery that is capable of moving extremely heavy loads and equipment from one location to another in a safe and precise manner using the overhead space of a manufacturing facility. Due to the nature of the work they perform...

Electric Hoist

Electric Hoist

Electric hoists are material handling equipment used for lifting, lowering, and transporting materials and products. They are powered by an electric motor and have a controller to adjust the lifting parameters...

Hydraulic Lifts

Hydraulic Lifts

A hydraulic lift is a device for moving objects using force created by pressure on a liquid inside a cylinder that moves a piston upward. Incompressible oil is pumped into the cylinder, which forces the piston upward. When a valve opens to release the oil, the piston lowers by gravitational force...

Lift Tables

Lift Tables

A lift table is a platform capable of holding materials and raising, lowering, and adjusting them to any height to meet the needs of an application and the user’s requirements. Lift tables are supported by a strong, rigid, and stable base frame placed flat on the floor, in a pit, or equipped with casters or wheels...
