Crane construction – Mobile cranes are indispensable helpers in the construction and heavy transport industries. They quickly move between locations, and telescopic booms allow high working heights to be reached quickly and easily.
Tower cranes are used in building construction.
Portal and slewing cranes are used in freight handling and storage, shipyards and assembly halls.
High-tensile steels are used in crane construction, on one hand to reduce operating costs due to their low weight and, on the other hand, to increase load capacity. The masts and the upper and lower carriages consist mainly of these material grades.
UnionStahl is prepared for these needs, and able to supply high-tensile steels compliant with EN 10025-6 and EN 10149-2 in larger quantities from stock.
We can meet your needs for structural steels in S235JR+N and S355J2+N for counterweights, upper and lower chords and side plates up to a plate length of 16.000 mm.
In addition, we supply components for hoists and load handling equipment (e.g. C-hooks).
