Terex Tower Cranes

Terex Tower Cranes

Early Crane Evolution
Over 4000 years ago, early Egyptians made the very first recorded version of a crane. The original apparatus was called a shaduf and was first utilized to transport water. The crane was made out of a long pivoting beam which balanced on a vertical support. On one end a heavy weight was attached and on the other end of the beam, a bucket was attached.

Cranes that were built in the first century were powered by humans or by animals that were moving on a treadmill or a wheel. The crane consisted of a wooden long beam that was known as a boom. The boom was attached to a rotating base. The treadmill or the wheel was a power-driven operation that had a drum with a rope that wrapped around it. This rope additionally had a hook which carried the weight and was connected to a pulley at the top of the boom.

Within Europe, the enormous cathedrals established in the Middle Ages were build utilizing cranes. Cranes were also used to load and unload ships within main ports. Eventually, major advancements in crane design evolved. Like for instance, a horizontal boom was added to and became known as the jib. This boom addition enabled cranes to have the ability to pivot, therefore greatly increasing the range of motion for the equipment. After the 16th century, cranes had included two treadmills on each side of a rotating housing that held the boom.

Even until the mid-19th century, cranes continued to rely on animals and humans for power. When steam engines were developed, this all quickly changed. At the turn of the century, electric motors as well as internal combustion or IC engines emerged. Also, cranes became designed out of cast iron and steel rather than wood. The new designs proved more efficient and longer lasting. They can obviously run longer also with their new power sources and therefore carry out larger jobs in less time.
