Crawler cranes nowadays reach a height of more than 200m and move loads up to around 4000t. They are used for the construction of power plants, refineries and wind farms. In operation a crawler crane is often requested of moving and travelling with a lifted load. Hereby Caterpillar tracks are far better at traversing soft ground without sinking in, as they spread the weight out over a great area and reduce the soil pressure. Thus a crawler crane can move about an unprepared job site with less risk of getting stuck in soft ground. The different ropes which are working together on a crawler crane are heavily strained and need to perform extraordinary.
Telescopic Mobile Cranes
There are a wide range of mobile cranes in this segment existing, starting with small Rough Terrain or Truck Cranes with a lifting capacity of a few tons up to larger cranes which can lift some 100 tons. The main characteristic of those cranes is the great flexibility in the usage.
The ropes we have developed for Telescopic Mobile Cranes provide exactly those needs in flexibility, safety and performance. The crane operator as well as the owner of the machine can be sure that there is 100% trust in the rope as we do everything to deliver top quality products to them.
For the lifting job we talk about rotation-resistant hoist ropes with 16 to 18 outer strands which we offer with our CASAR brand. Depending on the requirements like multi-layer spooling, high breaking loads or other specific needs we can offer the perfect fitting rope.
