Future of Building; Manitowoc Cranes

If someone wants to look at the future of building, one can observe the huge buildings and projects which have been developed successfully within a short span of time using huge portain tower cranesManitowoc’s huge cranes are an answer to modern construction. They are able to lift huge and heavy metal structures and transport them to heights within some time which aids in speedy and effective construction. Akbar Ali & Sons (A&S) are the manufacturers of this huge crane under the license; they have been successful in the previous years and have always satisfied customers with their products and services.

If we see the construction of a huge five star hotel or an enormous shopping mall, the portain tower cranes and portain self electing cranes can do the job providing more security at work place and much faster. All the cranes will aid in material handling and lifting works as one by one every floor is build and then in painting and furnishing it. Hence years work can be completed in months now. Another advantage of these Manitowoc crane is that they are compact and need less space to fit in. If construction is done at a place with a limited space say near the site there are restaurants, office buildings and lakes and there is much less space for huge equipments to fix in, portain cranes are compact and they can come in less space and provide more security at work place while handling huge weights and transporting it to other areas.

Portain tower crane’s by Aayag speed up the development programs in the country, they can be used in high raised multi story buildings and skyscrapers; for maintenance and for building it. They increase efficiency and productivity at work place. At workplace these cranes are often seen placing steel bars, doing light formwork and pouring the concrete. The Self erecting cranes are compact and can be easily transported, installed, erected and dismantled at work place, they are usually used for short term construction projects or in the areas where there is limited equipment access. It includes Igo, Igo MA, Igo T, HD and HDT ranges. The Top slewing tower cranes are available in six ranges; MDT and MCT Topless cranes, Topkit MD and Maxi MD models, Maxi Topkit cranes, and MR luffing jib cranes. These are huge cranes used for varying works.

Apart from constructing huge buildings, cranes are also used in construction of bridges, canals and dams. Cranes are useful as they reduce the siting cost, they are easy to mobilise and can move to different places, they only require an hour or so to start working again. Their operation is environmentally friendly as they work cleanly and quietly. They are able to pick up and deliver materials at the exact places where needed and without hassle or insecurity of dropping material in the middle. This result in minimum manual handling of material and thus an improved health and safety environment is created. The vehicular movement is minimized on the site as crane is huge enough to move and turn to different angles and do the job. Once a crane is purchased it can work 24/7 without any additional cost, and it shortened build programs. They eliminate the site reinstatement cost and reduce the material handling cost as compared to other material handling solutions. As the crane only operates from one place the excess places can be utilised for other jobs.

To order the Manitowoc Crane log on to Aayag website and get all the information about these great material handling and lifting solutions from one place.
