IPF offers two different types of cranes according to the length of the block to be handled:
Bi-supported Travelling Cranes. The best solution up to 35m long blocks. Supported by the building columns this crane can be installed in a quite simple building from a structural point of view.
Under-hung Travelling Cranes. The right solution for longer blocks. This kind of cranes requires a stronger building as the crane will hang from the roof of the building but are adequate for bigger building spans.
Both types of Cranes are equipped with clamps to grip fresh or cured foam blocks, according to customer needs.
