A jib crane consists of a load-supporting beam horizontally mounted to a pivoting column, either free-standing or mounted to a structure. They’re used for lifting loads in a specially designed small area of space, predetermined by the length of the boom. There are various types of Jib Cranes below.
Either supported by a cantilever or tie rod, Wall Mounted Jibs are only capable of 200° rotation. They typically run up to 5 ton loads.
Engineered to stand alone, Free-Standing Jibs have a full 360° rotation. Using various different types of bases, they typically come with loads up to 5 tons, though special custom loads are available. Free-Standing Jibs use either a Base Plate Mount, Foundation Mount or Sleeve Insert.
Other options include:
- Ceiling Mounted
- Articulating Arm
- Powered Rotation
