  • Cranes Seem to Defy Physics

    I don't think I was every really aware of the sheer number of cranes that exist in order for people to build things. In one way or another, most cranes are some variation of the construction crane. Of course, there are the bridge cranes businesses will use in their warehouses to move heavy cartons or packages onto trucks for shipment, and cranes themselves were designed in order to move large or very heavy objects from one location to another, but most cranes operate in the service of some aspect of...

  • Mobile Cranes are All-Terrain

    All cranes are in a sense mobile. Gantries and jibs can have mobile supports, and bridge cranes that are part of a building's overhead structure still have track and trolley rail systems with moving parts. And, in the broad picture, all cranes are meant to move loads from one location to another. However, for the following, I will be referring to mobile cranes as those that are attached to all-terrain vehicles and intended to accommodate hard-to-reach places. On road, on rail or on water, the mobile crane configuration is, in...

  • Mobile Cranes: Tips for Safe, Smooth Operation

    Mobile cranes are employed in many construction applications due the numerous advantages they offer. Mobile cranes take up less space and can be maneuvered more easily in almost any environment, including urban settings with little space. Multiple turning axles also means a significant increase in hoisting power, able to hoist much more than an average tower crane. The use of mobile cranes also reduces the cycle time of most construction projects as they require minimal assembly time, and they are both flexible and efficient. While mobile cranes are utilized for...

  • Konecranes Drives Power Output

    Konecranes is launching Power Drive system for lift trucks, a driveline technology that delivers up to 25% in fuel savings without impacting power outputs and provided as an option for customers ordering new machines. Power Drive is designed to enhance fuel savings through reducing the consumption of energy. A new hydraulic system configuration is now being used and performance has been unaffected by the alterations which have also lowered noise pollution. Konecranes has also optimised the rpm and added a transmission with a lock-up function. The company claims that Power...

Industry Information

Mobile Cranes

Mobile cranes are materials movement tools that are characterized by their ability to move or be moved within an industrial facility or around an outdoor operation. A mobile crane is any industrial crane that allows for the movement of objects in multiple areas.

Many crane configurations can be considered mobile, though there are different degrees and kinds of mobility. Tower cranes, for example, which are also a variety of jib crane, are not mobile while in action (they are mounted on 400,000 pound concrete slabs), but when a tower crane project is finished, the tower crane is disassembled and transported to its next assignment. In this way, a tower crane is more mobile than a gantry crane that never leaves a factory floor. However, within a factory floor, a gantry crane can be fitted with wheels or casters, which may allow movement around a factory enclosure. In this way, gantry cranes are more mobile than bridge cranes, which are usually permanently affixed to structural elements in a factory or warehouse, though they can also be used for outdoor projects like road construction and shipyard loading. The distinctions that separate crane configurations categories are fluid; most cranes belong to more than one category. Most of them are considered mobile in some way, though there are some cranes whose defining characteristic is mobility.

There are many mobile cranes that travel by land and are able to drive or be transported by other vehicles on roads or rough terrain. Highway mobile cranes are usually large trucks that can only move very slowly when holding a load in order to prevent tipping. Rough terrain mobile cranes are generally smaller and perform like four-wheel drive construction vehicles; they can feature treads, tracks or very large wheels as their means of transport. Depending on that means, they can reach worksites on their own, or they can be transported on large trucks. Some mobile cranes are intended for use over or on bodies of water. Water cranes can be mounted on boats for use by fishermen or marine studies applications. Other very large water-based mobile cranes can be used for the unloading of ships under unusual circumstances. For example, after a storm or the accidental grounding of a vessel, it may be necessary to remove cargo in order to prevent environmental degradation. Water cranes can also be used in the building of dams, bridges and in other construction projects that involve very large volumes of water. Mobile cranes are an indispensable industrial utility; they make the movement of materials possible under harsh or unusual circumstances.
