Placed with assorted demand of cranes from the construction market, crane manufacturers and distributors are positioning themselves to offer wide range of customized lifting equipment, P. P. Basistha takes a look. As mechanization takes further roots in Indian construction industry, cranes are beginning to find important place in projects. Application of the equipment and their utilities are finding to get recognition with the construction industry. Due notice of the development trend, which although to an extent can be said nascent, is being taken into notice by crane manufacturers and distributing companies in the country as well. Based on this, they are offering array of products to suit end–user requirements.

The development trend towards the increased application of the cranes, spans from its usage for setting up greenfield projects, both core, non-core and industrial construction projects. Cranes are also being used extensively for maintenance works. The increasing usage trend, is noticeably being characterized by demand of large capacity machines, precisely crawler cranes for industrial and core projects as a case.

Significantly, the trend of enhanced application of cranes is also being marked by requirement of techno– logically advanced machines for enhanced productivity, as projects are beginning to have tighter completion schedules. Lifting equipment are also in demand to suit niche lifting require– ments, pertaining to both construction material handling and industrial applications. Interestingly, there are also demands of machines that can work well in space constraints.

Multiple Lifting Products

crane manufacturers to offer customized lifting equipment
Mentioning on the development trend on the present demand requirement of wide range of cranes by the construction industry, Mr. Satish Bhatnagar, President, Materials Handling Division, Tractors India Limited (TIL) says, “based on wide nature of projects happening in the country, requirement of the cranes, in term of its lifting capacity is well diversified. However, the requirement shift is taking place towards higher capacity cranes with advanced features.”

TIL manufactures its own cranes at its factory near Kolkata and it has foreign collaborations for its products distributions. Under its own products, TIL has a product basket of industrial cranes with a capacity range of 13.75 tonnes to 20 tonnes. Truck mounted cranes with a capacity range of 20 tonnes to 40 tonnes. Rough terrain cranes with a capacity range of 20 tonnes to 75 tonnes. It also makes lorry loaders having a capacity of 4.50 tonnes to 8 tonnes reach stackers among other lifting equipment.
