In general, we can put the industry crane into three catalogue, namely, port crane, engineering crane and light crane. Among these cranes, in port crane, there are mainly the rubber tired gantry crane, grab ship unloader crane, etc. but in the engineering cranes, there are many kinds and common industry cranes, like single girder crane, double girder crane and gantry crane. Apart from this, jib crane, wind turbine crane and clean type electric hoist crane belong to the light crane.
