Lifting Equipment Efficiency From A Professional Point Of View

The productivity of lifting equipment is the number of tons of cargo or designs, processed per unit of time. In practice, operational productivity is consider to be the volume of work performed by machine. The operational performance of the crane is affected by a number of fixed and variable parameters. The article is prepared basing on the material published by the leaders of the industry: GMH, a far-famed manufacturer, lifting equipment inspection and lifting equipment services expert, as well as Machinery Britannia, another major UK business.

Constant parameters are determined by performance characteristics of the crane’s load capacity (including the cases with no outriggers and traveling with a load), hook height, speed of movement of workers, the method changes the length of the arrows, time-consuming to install working equipment and ease of maintenance units.

Variables do not depend on the design of the crane – they are determined by the conditions of its application and driver’s qualifications. These include: the kind of cargo, type of work, design-planning decisions of the object, the type of cargo handling point, the technological scheme of work, type of road base, as well as the location of the object area.
