Luffing cable crane system
In the case of the Thyssenkrupp technology “luffing cable crane systems”, one tower or even two towers are tilted by up to 15° transversely to the crane axis. The tilting movement is performed by multiple reeved ropes. They are driven by a luffing winch located at the base of the tower. Depending on whether one or two luffing towers are used, the working area resembles a triangle or rectangle. The working width depends on the height of the towers.
