Category Cranes

A crane is a lifting machine; they are generally equipped with a winder, wire ropes or chains and sheaves. They are used to lift and lower materials and also to move them horizontally. It uses one or more simple machines to create mechanical advantage and therefore have the ability to move loads beyond the normal capability of a human. Cranes are commonly employed in the transport industry for the loading and unloading of freight, in the construction industry for the movement of materials and in the manufacturing industry for the assembling of heavy equipment.

Cranes exist in an enormous variety of forms, each of these are tailored to a specific use. Sizes range from the smallest jib cranes, used which are used inside workshops, to the tallest overhead cranes, used for the construction of high buildings, and the largest floating cranes, used to build oil rigs and salvage sunken ships.

There are two major considerations when looking at the design of cranes. Firstly is that the crane must be able to lift a load of a specified weight and secondly is that the crane must remain stable and not topple over when the load is lifted and moved to another location.
