They come in varying sizes and are primarily used in construction, marine, and mining industries. Cranes are categorized into two types – mobile and fixed. The hoist rope is a component which serves the purpose of loading or lower materials, and is available in various types, including wire rope, roller chain, and welded link load chain among others. Cranes and hoists work in conjunction to improve efficiency and production while lowering labor costs and ensuring better working conditions.
