As civilization developed, humans started manufacturing brand new devices, to get the work done faster and in a more convenient way. In the industrial sector, one of the biggest inventions are the heavy machinery that could lift, move and transport large objects across heights or distances.

1920311_706274939417688_784266711_n   Cranes are machines that could lift, pull, tug, carry, and do many such things that are    done on a large scale.The introduction of cranes are by the Greeks, who then used the    power of beasts of load to set these cranes into action, making it possible for men to easily  haul as well as lower objects almost ten times their size. Typically, the cranes have been  put to use in almost any sector that may involve transportation. Be it on land or even on  water, it is just impossible to carry out a host of critical activities without the use of  cranes.

 Cranes used in the construction industry are mainly designed for temporary structures  either placed on a vehicle which is built for a specific purpose of carrying the crane, or  fixed to the ground. Construction work started to be much easier and could be completed  much easily. Cranes may be controlled by different methods such as infrared control,  radio control or a built in control station using a push button pendant or by an operator  sitting in the vehicle. Cranes are commonly employed in the transportation industry for  the loading as well as unloading of freight. Cranes in the manufacturing plants are often  overhead cranes which move along with beams that assist in lifting.

Cranes exist in different forms, each tailored to a specialized use. Sizes range from the small jib cranes to the tallest tower cranes used for constructing high-rise buildings. A lot of cranes are also of the stationary types that can be seen mainly in the harbors, to be used in the lifting of the goods that arrive in ships or placing them back on. Most of the construction sites are filled with such cranes services which deploy a range of these equipment that are in work. A suspended crane or overhead crane is used mostly inside factories and they are capable of transporting very heavy loads. In automated and computer operated warehouses, a stacker crane with a forklift is used. While in bridge or port construction, floating cranes are used. To load or unload awkward or even heavy machinery floating cranes are ideal. Floating cranes are also used in coastal work. Aerial cranes which are extended from helicopters, are used to transport large loads.

Invention of cranes made things easier for mankind because without them,loading  970907_610672225644627_246155342_n,unloading, and moving had to be done by human hands, it would take more time,and the whole system is not productive at all.Cranes are very helpful in many ways. Be it in a construction site, manufacturing plants, infrastructure, roads sites and more. Cranes are always a solution for us in such ways!
