Load change: DIN 13001 and Eurocode


If the load-carrying equipment is used intensively, a design according to DIN EN 13155 is not sufficient. In this case, precise calculations must be made and the loads involved must be evaluated in accordance with DIN EN 13001.

According to EN 13001, all cranes are classified into hoist class (HC) hoist type (HD) and S class (S). Based on the expected material fatigue, this classification defines how many load cycles the load handling device is designed for. As with old DIN 15018, the objective is to standardize the expected service life in conjunction with the type of use.
