Cranes : Lattice Boom Truck Cranes

A crane is a piece of mechanical equipment that uses pulleys, winches, and ropes, cables or chains to lift an object. Lattice boom truck cranes are large industrial and constructions cranes utilized when the load limits are extremely large. Rather than using a single beam element for the boom, the boom is created by a box-like mesh of tubular strength members. The lattice construction of the boom delivers superior strength for the support of the crane cables.
