## Introduction

The hook is a special crane part that connects the wire rope with the load. It can be divided into the main beam and auxiliary beams, which are connected by bolts. The main function of the hook is to make the wire rope be lifted and move in cranes. It is a kind of fixed-point machinery device, so how to calculate the weight of it? I will introduce how much weight can support by its maximum load later on in this article.

## Hook of crane

A hook is a special crane part which connects the wire rope with the load. The main function of the hook is to make the wire rope be lifted and move in cranes.

Hooks are fixed-point machinery devices, and they should be installed on both sides of a crane so as to balance loads during lifting operations.

### Hook is a special crane part that connects the wire rope with the load.

The hook is a special crane part that connects the wire rope with the load. It is a fixed-point machinery device and is often called “hook”.

Hooks have a variety of forms, such as: single-arm, double-arm and triple-arm hooks; girder type; fixed type; grab type (grip or grab) etc.. The most common types are those used in hoisting operations on construction sites: single arm swing type or double arm swing type.

### The main function of the hook is to make the wire rope be lifted and move in the cranes.

The main function of the hook is to make the wire rope be lifted and move in the cranes.

The hook can connect with both ends of a wire rope, so it can be used for lifting, lowering, hoisting and moving loads.

The hook can also connect with one end of a wire rope, so it can be used for lifting or lowering loads only.

### Hook is a kind of fixed-point machinery device, so how to calculate the weight of it?

A hook is a kind of fixed-point machinery device, so how to calculate the weight of it?

The maximum load capacity of a hook is calculated according to the standards and requirements for each type of product. If you want to know how much weight your hooks can support, you can calculate it according to its maximum load.

### The weight of a hook is estimated by its maximum load. If you want to know how much weight of the hook can support, you can calculate it according to its maximum load.

The weight of a hook is estimated by its maximum load. If you want to know how much weight of the hook can support, you can calculate it according to its maximum load.

The formula for calculating a hook’s weight is: W=W*(1+0.01*L)/100 where W is the calculated weight of your object, W’ is its real weight, L is its length and d’ represents diameter if it has any shape other than circular (R).

### If a crane’s capacity increases, then you need to increase the weight of its wire rope and hook.

If a crane’s capacity increases, then you need to increase the weight of its wire rope and hook. If the maximum load of the hook increases, then you need to increase the weight of its wire rope and hook.

## Conclusion

The hook is an important part of crane, so you should know its weight. If you want to know how much weight of the hook can support, you can calculate it according to its maximum load. Previous Post
