ASEA of Sweden says all load-bearing details and mechanical components of its cranes are sized with the aid of a computer. The company says this, together with careful selection of materials and control enables the creation of units meeting rigorous safety standards. ASEA makes a variety of cranes for container handling, including ship-to-shore units and road-to-rail designs. The ASEA crane at Tilbury, U.K. has a double-girder system and can handle two 20-foot containers simultaneously. The crane features thyristor control, in which all drives, apart from the boom raising machinery, are powered by DC motors with thyristor converters.
