Luffing Crane

Go back to markets

In a shipyard luffing cranes are a fundamental piece of equipment, able to perform countless lifting and installation tasks. Used for freight loading in ports, level-luffing cranes are also used in the construction of small to medium-sized ships. Luffing cranes incorporate traveling, slewing, luffing and lifting mechanisms and perform bucket loading, container loading as well as hook loading.

Level-luffing cranes are designed to keep the level of the hook always at the exact same height while luffing. The jib moves up and down so as to move the hook inwards and outwards from the crane base. When loads near ground level are to be moved with maximum care, level-luffing is a crucial capability, for example in shipbuilding or construction. Modern cranes now implement fixed horizontal jibs with an additional “horse head” section. In this case the interconnected action of the pivots is sufficient to maintain the level.
