Research on Anti-Backward-Tipping Device of Luffing Jib Tower Crane


Article Preview

When the crane jib is in the maximum elevation angle,luffing jib tower cranes can happen to produce accidents of crane jib backward- tipping. The anti-backward-tipping device is the necessary safety device luffing jib tower crane. Based on the study of several anti-backward-tipping devices, this paper analyzes the causes and forced state of crane jib backward- tipping and proposes several factors to be put into consideration in designing anti-backward-tipping device. It proposes a design method and calculation method of dual-spring anti-backward-tipping device, which has been applied and verified in product design.
