Towering Cranes Seem To Appear Overnight! How Does it Happen so Fast?
We’ve all seen the massive, many-storeyed cranes that seem to appear overnight in cities and industrial areas around the world. These behemoths come in a range of varieties, some of which are built using self-erecting technology. This allows for quick and easy setup and expansion.
The initial process includes the laying and curing of concrete foundations, into which a Tower Mast is embedded. This forms the basic foundation of all tower cranes.
What if they are not self-erecting?
It is true that not all cranes are equipped with self-erecting technology, indeed, this technology did not always exist.
Where engineers have to make do without self-erecting mechanisms, the use of mobile cranes comes into play. The same basic foundation is laid, after which the use of mobile cranes comes into operation, whereby the individual sections are lifted and bolted into place.
These mobile cranes make use of extraordinary hydraulic power for both their stability and lifting abilities.
