elevação de lança / elevação de braço

Este termo, no contexto das especificações dos guindastes portuários da Plimsoll Fleetwinch (de onde esta frase foi retirada), refere-se à elevação ou içamento do braço (ou lança) do guindaste.

Outro termo em inglês que também é usado neste caso é luffing.

Pelo contexto, hoisting e slewing é são movimentos da carga suspensa no guindaste, enquanto topping é o movimento de içamento de todo o braço (ou lança) do guindaste.
