2. Jib cranes which are mount on walls or floors and consist of a horizontal beam called jib upon which a shuttle or hoist is mounted. Floor or foundation-mounted jib cranes have higher load ratings than wall-mounted cranes. A cantilevered jib crane can incorporate full or partial rotation.
3. Gantry cranes have a horizontal beam and end supports or legs, the size of which range from small, workstation cranes to very large, heavy-duty construction cranes.
4. Overhead cranes or bridge cranes attach a horizontal load-carrying beam to wall columns or the underside of the ceiling
5. Boom cranes use a structure, pole or boom to support a suspended cable for load attachment .
6. Tower cranes use a cantilever boom, but are designed for very heavy-duty operations.
7. Mobile cranes and truck -mounted can be moved or driven to different locations.
8. Ship cranes and deck cranes are designed for shipboard mounting and the loading or ships, freighters , and other maritime vessels.
9. Stacker cranes are similar to bridge cranes; however, instead of a hoist, these industrial cranes use a mast with forks or a platform to handle unit loads.
