Euclid stacker cranes
The Euclid Crane & Hoist Co., founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 1909, became known for building innovative, heavy-duty lifting equipment. Euclid competed with Cleveland Crane, Northern and P & H, building overhead, gantry and stacker cranes for shipyards, steel mills, power plants, assembly lines and pulp & paper mills.
Euclid’s stacker crane, essentially a forklift mounted on a crane, was one of the first pre-computerized ASRS designs in wide use by the automotive industry. It could raise and lower easily, rotate, and be programmed to retrieve items kept in long aisles of racks and bins.
Euclid power plant cranes
Euclid was also known for power plant cranes. Beefy Euclid cranes employing gate hoists to control water flow were key elements in hydro power generation. Euclid’s groundbreaking gearbox design, which incorporated a mechanical load brake, was the impetus behind the eventual purchase and assimilation of Euclid Crane & Hoist by Kranco Crane Services Inc. in the 1970s, which later became part of Konecranes.
