- What is Rigging?
Rigging is "the art of lifting heavy objects." The crane provides the vehicle for the lifting and relocation of the piece in question.
Considerations as with any industry involving heavy equipment and heavy loads, crane rigging requires experience and specialization.
When lifting a piece, riggers must ascertain its weight. After they have decided its tonnage, they must choose the proper method for lifting it and how it will be applied so as best to control the balance of the piece. Materials are then used to secure the piece or to keep it stabilized throughout the lift. These items may include slings, dollies, lines and shackles.
