MOBILE CRANE OPERATOR TRAINING COURSE

OPERATE MOBILE CRANE TRAINING SERVICES – SA MINING AND OPERATOR TRAINING COLLEGE

TRAINING CENTER IN RUSTENBURG,SOUTH AFRICA

A mobile crane is a cable-controlled crane mounted on crawlers or rubber-tired carriers or a hydraulic-powered crane with a telescoping boom mounted on truck-type carriers or as self-propelled models.[1] They are designed to easily transport[2] to a site and use with different types of load and cargo with little or no setup or assembly.

Mobile cranes generally operate a boom from the end of which a hook is suspended by wire rope and sheaves. The wire ropes are operated by whatever prime movers the designers have available, operating through a variety of transmissions. Steam engines, electric motors, and internal combustion engines have all been used. Older cranes' transmissions tended to be clutches. This was later modified when using engines to match the steam engines' "max torque at zero speed" characteristic by the addition of a hydrokinetic element culminating in controlled torque converters. The operational advantages of this arrangement can now be achieved by electronic control of hydrostatic drives, which for size and other considerations is becoming standard. Some examples of this type of crane can be converted to a demolition crane by adding a demolition ball, or to an earthmover by adding a clamshell bucket or a dragline and scoop, although design details can limit their effectiveness.

At SA MINING AND OPERATOR TRAINING COLLEGE, we do offer mobile crane training services, the programme runs for 2 weeks which includes theory and practicals.
Learners of this course are expected to have driver's since this course involves driving the crane from one place to the other.
