JIB CRANES

Jib Cranes lift and transport materials in semi circles (180 degrees) or full circles (360 degrees) around their support structure. These jib cranes can also be used to “hand off” materials to adjacent workstations. Hoists, manipulators, or balancers can be installed on the jibs’ booms. Our articulating jib cranes have booms with two axes so they can reach around obstacles, such as columns. All of our jibs quickly fold out of the way of overhead cranes.

  • Jib Cranes maximize space utilization: Wall-mounted jib cranes, ceiling or wall-mounted articulating jib cranes, and wall-traveling jib cranes require no floor space. We offer models with unrivaled clearance, both above and under the boom.
  • On some designs, you can use your building’s existing columns or overhead beams to mount our jib cranes, saving you money.
  • Freestanding jibs can be weatherized for outdoor use.
  • Capacities: from 100 pounds to 10,000 pounds standard and up to 30,000 pounds depending on span and jib series, with hundreds of pre-engineered models.

FREESTANDING

  • Crane Rotation: 360°
  • Capacities: up to 15 tons
  • Spans: up to 50’
  • Heights—floor to underside of boom: up to 40’

Freestanding Jib Cranes provide higher capacities and longer spans than wall-mounted cranes. These foundation-mounted cranes install almost anywhere. Typically require a concrete foundation for mounti

 FOUNDATIONLESS 

  • Crane Rotation: 360°
  • Spans: Up to 16’
  • Capacities: up to 2,000 lbs.
  • Heights—floor to underside of boom: Up to 20’

Foundationless Jib Cranes are industrial slab-mounted systems that are bolted to existing reinforced concrete. These systems do not require a special foundation to be poured, so they can be installed almost anywhere within your facility and be easily relocated if needed.

PORTABLE BASE

Portable base jib cranes are ideal when pouring a foundation is out of the question or when several work areas require the help of a jib crane. Easily move this jib throughout your factory with a standard forklift.

  • Capacities up to 1/2 Ton
  • Standard Spans/Heights up to 16 Ft.
  • Custom heights and spans available

 

WALL CANTILEVER

The Wall Cantilever Jib Crane provide hoist coverage and 200° rotation for individual use in bays, along walls or columns of plants, or as a supplement to an overhead crane or monorail system. This jib has the advantage of providing maximum lift for the hoist, since it can be installed very close to the underside of the lowest ceiling obstruction.

Tie-Rod or Full Cantilever Design Types Available

  • Capacities up to 12 ton
  • Standard Span lengths up to 30+ feet
  • Custom span lengths available

 

MAST STYLE

Mast-Style Jib Cranes provide 360-degree crane rotation and can be rotated manually or by power. They bolt to floor and building’s steel beams, eliminating costly special foundations.

  • Capacities up to 10 ton
  • Standard Spans/Heights up to 30+ feet
  • Custom span lengths available

ARTICULATING

Articulating Jib Cranes can help to position loads in hard to reach places. They are perfect for manipulating around columns, corners, and in and out of narrow passage ways. With true 360 articulation, they have a large coverage area from the boom mast out to the tip of the outer arm. They are a perfect compliment to any hoist, manipulator, balancer and vacuum lifter. Self-supporting 360 degree rotating jib crane. 

Mounting Types:  Floor, Wall/Column, Ceiling
