  • Important Safety Features in Electric Cranes

    Electric cranes are highly versatile, and are a green replacement for standard combustion-engine cranes. The use of electricity helps the cranes run cleaner and more efficiently than those powered by traditional engines. If you decide you want to purchase an electric crane, look for the following safety features to ensure the operators stay as safe as possible while using the machine: Overload preventers: An overload preventer can prevent the crane from working if it is overloaded. Most systems use either a strain gauge or load measuring pin inside the crane...

  • Why Should You Use Electric Cranes?

    An electric crane is powered by electricity rather than gasoline or diesel. Some electric cranes have full electronic power, while others simply use electricity to power the crane unit itself, while powering the crane vehicle with traditional fossil fuels. Whether you use a partially electric-powered crane or a completely eclectic-powered crane, they can provide many benefits over gasoline-powered cranes, such as: Cleaner operation: A diesel or gasoline powered crane produces a high amount of emissions into the air in the form of gasoline fumes. Electric batteries do not emit emissions...

  • The Environmentally Friendly Electric Crane

    Electric cranes use electric power to control the vehicle's crane, rather than cranes powered by traditional fossil fuels. Many crane manufacturers are switching to electric crane use for a variety of reasons, including increased safety, energy efficiency, and their environmentally friendly nature. Electric cranes can provide the following benefits to companies who make the switch: Energy savings: An electric crane can save a large amount of energy over previous crane construction. Up to 35 percent less energy is used, which adds up to cost savings and saves energy for other...

  • The Science behind Electro-Magnetic Cranes

    I see it all the time in movies. The protagonists are in a junkyard and just got done running from a gigantic dog or what have you. Then everything is silent. All the sudden a colossal crane swoops in from ahead and manages to suck up the adventurers by latching onto something metal. The first movie that comes to mind is Toy Story 3, but it's a well used scene. I've always wondered how the big crane arms work. I know it has something to do with magnets to sort...

  • Cleaning up with Electric Cranes

    Mobile cranes have been used for several decades to provide mobile movement services for a variety of tasks, specifically for loading and unloading cargo from shipyards. Until very recently, the only option for these cranes was diesel-powered engines. Now manufacturers have created a new way to power mobile cranes that uses electric power rather than full reliance on fossil fuels. The main reason that shipyards and other companies are switching to the electric powered cranes is to provide cost savings and environmentally friendly practices. Some companies have used electric powered...

Industry Information

Electric Cranes

Electric cranes are materials movement tools that are powered by electricity. All cranes that are not operated manually involve the use of electricity at some point during their operation. The extent to which an industrial crane uses electricity determines whether or not it qualifies as an electric crane.

Very large industrial shipyard cranes, which are used to load sea containers that weigh several tons, require electricity in order for the complex of servos, pulleys and hoist systems to move parts from one place to another. The generation source of this electricity is often one or more very powerful generators. They can be diesel powered or they can draw their source from another fuel. Because they generate electricity as a result of burning fuel, these cranes are generally not considered to be electric cranes. The words “electric crane” usually refer to smaller, lower load-capacity cranes that are used in manufacturing processes and in comparatively light-duty construction operations. Electric cranes can be designed in many configurations, but they are usually called upon when the power and scale of a large, gas powered or hydraulic crane is not necessary or is too expensive.

Jib cranes, bridge cranes, stacker cranes and many other crane configurations can all be powered by electricity. The main factor that distinguishes these kinds of cranes from other, much larger gas powered cranes is that they don’t include their own power sources. They can usually be connected to a power source within a building or to the power sources of vehicles, on which they can often be mounted. In manufacturing processes, small jib cranes are often used in workstations for the movement of heavy parts over short distances. Automotive repair shops often make use of electric jib cranes when removing or mounting an engine. They can also be mounted in truck beds for use in small-scale hauling applications. Mobile cranes of these varieties are generally inexpensive, effective, safe and easy to use. The largest electric cranes are usually bridge cranes used in warehouses and manufacturing operations; these cranes can reach across entire warehouse floors and require less operating space compared to other materials handling equipment like forklifts. They can also be connected to permanent electric power sources and don’t require their own independent power sources. The smallest electric industrial cranes can be battery operated. They are usually rechargeable and can be used in mobile applications or in very light-duty factory or warehouse lifting contexts.
