Safety

Cranes are used across many heavy industries to move equipment or goods either in manufacturing or transportation environments. There is currently a trend to increase safety at work and to optimize efficiency in industrial operations. Cranes can make a vital contribution to these areas.
There are various types of cranes: overhead traveling cranes and gantry cranes. With these kinds of cranes a load is hung from a gripper by cables and the load behaves like a swinging pendulum. The swaying load can be a dangerous hazard. The load can also place extreme stress on the crane itself.

The way to improve crane safety is to adjust the movement of the load carefully with an AC or DC drive linked to the electric motor.

The Four Quadrants

Cranes and hoists are high-performance pieces of equipment. As a result, they need four-quadrant loads. This term means they have positive speed and torque with acceleration, positive speed and negative torque with deceleration, reverse accelerating quadrant with negative speed and torque, and decelerating quadrant with negative speed and positive torque. Therefore, speed and torque can be in any direction.

AC or DC

DC motors are expensive to use due to high maintenance costs. As a result, they are becoming obsolete. In contrast, AC motors are robust and simple in design so they don’t need a lot of maintenance. Also, AC motors are cheap to run.

Cranes and hoists tend to use AC motors with flux vector control. However, many DC motors are still in use. When modernising an existing installation you need to consider whether to overhaul the existing DC drive or replace it with an AC motor.

Crane Applications

Hoist

This means the lifting or lowering of a weight.

Bridge, gantry, or long travel

This is the part of a high crane made up of girders, trucks, end ties, a walkway, and the drive equipment that moves the trolley and takes it alongside the runway

Trolley, or cross travel

This is the unit carrying the hoisting component that moves on the bridge rails. The trolley runs on a single motor or two motors along with a shared shank.

Jib or boom

These terms describe the horizontal beam holding up a moving hoist attached to the wall or to a column mounted on the floor.

Slewing

The term describes the pointed swinging of a crane boom or crane jib in a horizontal direction. This movement is seen in cranes of a tower type.
