Terex Tower Cranes

Terex Tower Cranes

Early Crane Evolution
The very first recorded idea or kind of a crane was utilized by the early Egyptians more than 4000 years ago. This apparatus was referred to as a shaduf and was 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 which were built during the first century were powered by animals or by humans that were moving on a treadmill or a wheel. The crane consisted of a wooden long beam which was called a boom. The boom was connected to a base which rotates. 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 that was connected to a pulley at the top of the boom and carried the weight.

In Europe, the enormous cathedrals established in the Middle Ages were made utilizing cranes. Cranes were also used to load and unload ships within major ports. Over time, significant developments in crane design evolved. 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, thus really increasing the range of motion for the machine. After the 16th century, cranes had included two treadmills on each side of a rotating housing that held the boom.

Cranes utilized animals and humans for power until the mid-19th century. This all changes quickly when steam engines were developed. At the turn of the century, IC or internal combustion engines as well as electric motors emerged. Cranes also became designed out of steel and cast iron as opposed to wood. The new designs proved longer lasting and more efficient. They could obviously run longer also with their new power sources and hence complete bigger tasks in less time.
