Abstract

For construction of multistoried buildings, choice of material handling equipment becomes critical for reasons of both economy and safety. To bridge the existing technological gap between age-old traditional methods of material handling and modern sophisticated cranes, the Central Building Research Institute (CBRI) Roorkee has developed Mini Climbing Crane with a lifting capacity of 1000 kg-m. The crane has registered considerable saving in construction time besides a large saving in labour. This machine has been awarded the best technology NRDC Award.

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)
Uncontrolled Keywords: Mini Climbing Crane, chain pulley blocks, hoisting, diversified application, sophisticated cranes and primitive methods of material handling.
