History of lifting #2: The lifting crane

Determined to build ever taller and more sophisticated infrastructures, the engineers of antiquity invented the crane between the 6th and 5th century BC in order to lift heavy loads with less effort.

Originally made of wood and ropes in vegetable fibres, the technological improvements that Humanity has experienced over the centuries have enabled new materials to be incorporated into this lifting device to make it more efficient and to ensure greater safety for users.

To pursue these objectives of efficiency and safety, Traction Levage offers its customers high-quality accessories and wire ropes that adapt to your cranes, your expectations and your specifications.
