Luffing Cable Cranes.

Cost-efficient, flexible and quick

Luffing cable crane systems provide a convenient solution for special tasks in the field of dams, bridges or other projects where a large working area must be spanned.

Another advantage of a luffing crane is the high speed seen here as all movements in the 3 directions (longitudinal, lateral and lifting direction) can be made simultaneously.


Luffing cable cranes consist of two towers – one on each side of the construction area. The technical background is that the main poles can be inclined in the lateral direction and so the surface to be achieved is significantly extended.

In opposition to a standard cable crane, the luffing cable crane is able to unload goods on a extended surface – similar to a parallel crane, but more cost efficient. Through the use of only one pole on each side, the system can be built very quickly and space saving.
