Functioning of a Tower Crane


Tower cranes plays an important role for any major construction site. Its usability can’t be denied. They often rise hundreds of feet into the air, and can reach out just as far. They are valued for its importance during construction is of great importance; as the construction crew uses the tower crane to lift steel, concrete, large tools like acetylene torches and generators, and a wide variety of other building materials.

When we look at one of these cranes, what it can do seems nearly impossible but with its working scenario it does wonders where labor and normal machine cannot reach, saving time energy and cost above all for the task to be accomplished. An innovative crane that can easily tip over and its weighing and lifting capacity leaves us speechless. Its ability to grow taller as the building grows taller is the real requirement of today’s construction sites.

All tower cranes consist of the same basic parts. The base is bolted to a large concrete pad that supports the crane. The base connects to the mast (ortower), which gives the tower crane its height. Attached to the top of the mast is the slewing unit; the gear and motor — that allows the crane to rotate

On top of the slewing unit there are three parts, The long horizontal jib (or working arm), which is the portion of the crane that carries the load. A trolley runs along the jib to move the load in and out from the crane’s center. The shorter horizontal machinery arm, which contains the crane’s motors and electronics as well as the large concrete counter weights

The machinery arm contains the motor that lifts the load, along with the control electronics that drive it and the cable drum. The motors that drive the slewing unit are located above the unit’s large gear

All these operations are carried by an expert operator who is sitting in the operator’s hub or cabin.
