About mobile lattice boom cranes
Lattice boom cranes tend to have increased mobility and flexibility, the crane turntable ensures that loads can be precisely approached, which gives improved control and safety when handling loads. The lattice boom itself is the long arm on a crane that is responsible for raising and lowering the goods through a series of wire ropes. Lattice boom cranes are often used in applications where large and heavy items will be raised (sometimes to quite high levels of elevation) in order to offer extra guidance with load capacities typically ranging up to 750 tonnes.
Construction of a mobile lattice crane
The lattice-boom is a fabricated, high-strength steel structure consisting of four main chords and tubular lacings which is mounted on a base on top of either a crawler or truck. Lattice-boom cranes are designed to weigh less and provide higher lifting capacities than a telescopic boom of similar length. This enables them to move extremely heavy loads both safely and economically. The lattice-boom sections along with the crane base itself are erected on site.
Specific requirements of mobile lattice boom crane rope
Mobile lattice boom crane rope has very unique and specific requirements. Rotation resistant ropes are not suitable for boom rope and a series of guidelines and regulations are set out in ASME B30.5. For example, all boom hoist ropes must have a minimum bending capability that’s compatible with its design factor.
It is essential for all boom hoist ropes to have sufficient crushing resistance, therefore compacted strand or compacted ropes are often a good option for most cranes. Not all compacted ropes may be suitable however, as although they have increased crushing resistance, they do not have the same level of fatigue resistance as compacted ropes. Don’t skimp or compromise on the mobile lattice boom crane ropes you buy as the largest cost most businesses face is downtime, buy the specific rope you need from us and avoid costly periods of downtime.
