Online PR News – 21-August-2010 – Staffordshire – Today’s toughest jobs of lifting and moving heavy equipment for construction or manufacturing works are turning out to be easy with the help of crane handling machines.

The use of lifting equipment is a standard regimen in the construction industry where the ability to move building materials vertically and horizontally speeds up work and improves efficiency.

Cranes are used heavily in most building constructions today, especially with high rise structures where hefty concrete materials and steel beams move up and down and side to side.

But design innovations were also made to create cranes that are mobile and can do quick lifting jobs on specific locations where mounting of permanent cranes is impractical.

Auto mechanics and machine operators also find great use of smaller cranes having chain hoists and lifting gears in pulling out engines from automobile chassis or moving heavy payloads.

Several lifting equipment that use swing jibs are also indispensable components of manufacturing industries such as motor assembly lines where cranes speed up handling and overall work.

The use of cranes was traced to the ancient Greeks when they invented lifting equipment made of wooden beams during the 6th century B.C. to lift heavy loads with simple mechanical force driven by men or animals.

But cranes started to become popular during the Roman Empire with the escalation of construction activity, where buildings occupy enormous dimensions.
Meanwhile, the onset of Industrial Revolution which started in the 18th century also changed the way cranes were made and the way these are being used today.
Construction engineers working on roads, bridges, airports, high-rise towers and other mega structures have pointed to the enormous importance of employing cranes in the construction work.

“This piece of equipment is making wonders to the construction and manufacturing industries and it simply turned what we thought an impossible job, possible,” says Tom Ryan, a veteran mechanical engineer who has worked as crane operations head in many large construction projects. #
