Crane Industry Development Trend – Specialization
Updated: Jul 22, 2021
With the development of power, petrochemical, steel, transportation and other infrastructure construction, the crane market is expanding rapidly, and the large-scale trend of cranes has become an irreversible fact. In order to reduce production costs and save manpower and material resources, the demand for large overhead cranes or gantry cranes is gradually expanding, and the requirements for the lifting capacity of cranes are increasing. The lifting speed requirements are getting higher and higher, and the requirements for the control of energy consumption and crane performance are bound to be higher and higher. As an important part of the automated production process, simple operation, high safety, reliable performance, and easy maintenance are the basic requirements for cranes. In addition, cost-effective cranes will have more markets in the future.
For this reason, specialized cranes that meet the needs of various tasks are constantly being developed and put into use, including special cranes for nuclear power, paper making, and garbage disposal. And cranes with special performance can also meet a variety of working environments, such as anti-corrosion, explosion-proof, insulated electric hoist cranes and so on. The performance of traditional railway and ship-specific cranes has also been continuously enhanced, and its adaptability to the environment has also been continuously improved.
It is conceivable that with the continuous development and accelerated development of urbanization, many projects including railway transportation, construction, energy and water conservancy, etc., have provided a broader development for the development of crane industry prospect. In the next 3 to 5 years, the crane market will be more exciting, with a denser spectrum of products ranging from 100 tons to 1,000 tons, and electric hoist technology will become more mature. People will gradually make breakthroughs in companies from the beginning. Calm down in the "world's biggest" surprise, and integrate more deeply into engineering applications and user needs.
Facing the good momentum of the development of lifting machinery industry, we should pay attention to the technology of machinery, and research and put forward countermeasures for the sustainable development of lifting machinery equipment. We have now entered the high-end, innovation age to lead development, to realize the long-term development of the industry.
