Sleeve Mounted Jib
There are various jib crane models from which to choose: floor-mounted pillar types; top and bottom-supported units; wall or column-mounted versions; and models that afford manual or motorized rotation. Built to the highest industry standards.
CUSTOM JIB CRANES
Floor plate Jib Cranes
The floor plate mounted jib crane is widely used to control or position a load in areas that are generally inaccessible to other material handling equipment. They are designed to provide reliable, long-life performance with minimal maintenance. This free standing jib crane provides 360-degree rotation. Available options include taglines, festoon systems, collector ring assemblies and motorized rotation.
Wall Mounted Jib Cranes
Economical wall mounted full cantilever jib cranes are designed for mounting on to walls or columns to serve a 180-degree arc. They are useful under an overhead bridge crane when there is adequate head room.
Telescoping Jib Crane
This is a top and bottom supported jib crane that telescopes. These jib cranes are particularly useful when ceiling height is limited. They can be mounted to a wall or column within three inches of the ceiling, providing valuable additional headroom of lifting range. Entirely self-supporting, without tie rods or other bracing, the jib crane can be installed with the girder at maximum available height and with very little clearance necessary.
Capacities are based on the live load at the hoist hook, making allowances for hoist and trolley weights, and impact.
Motorized rotating jib cranes are widely used to control or position the load in an area that is generally inaccessible to material handling equipment, or where the load, weight or duty cycle make it impractical to employ manual rotation.
Jib Crane with 360° Rotation
Jib cranes are available either with a base plate for floor mounting or without a base for mounting the pillar directly into a concrete foundation.
In addition to the standard jib crane construction features, these motorized units include motor, variable speed electronic drive, heavy-duty chain drive, pintle pin and reducer. Optional equipment includes current collector rings for 360° continuous electrification, and tagline assembly for festooned hoist conductor cables. Control push buttons are usually incorporated into the hoist push button station to facilitate operator control (push button optional).
The motorized drive rotation of the jib boom typically provides a rotation speed of 1/2 RPM, but speeds up to 1 RPM are available.
Top and Bottom Mounted Jib Crane
These jib crane models provide 360° of rotation and are used where support can be provided for the top bearing assembly by securing to a ceiling, truss, wall, beam or column. The bottom bearing assembly is secured to the floor or to a foundation.
The mast and boom are made of heavy structural beams, fabricated in sections for easy shipping and handling. The bottom bearing is a self-aligning tapered roller bearing in a machined housing and is provided with a pressure lubrication fitting. The top bearing is a sealed ball bearing with provision to allow for expansion and contraction of the structure to which it is attached.
The jib boom is a standard I-beam. All parts are factory tested to assure proper fit and alignment. The overall height of the mast assembly can be varied to suit existing conditions and will proportionately change the height under the boom.
Full Cantilever Jib Cranes
The full cantilever style is used where the available headroom dictates that the jib boom be as high as possible to provide adequate clearance under the boom. Note that the compression brace limits hoist travel. Special V-bracing can be provided to accommodate full hoist travel.
The sleeve mounted jib has a steel pillar that inserts into a matching sleeve.
Bottom Entry Collector Ring Assembly
Optional bottom entry electrical collector assembly includes junction box, internal wiring, collector assembly in web of beam, and junction box in head assembly for power connection to electrical hoist.
This feature provides the capability of 360° rotation when using an air hoist on the boom. Included is a pipe nipple 12" above the floor for attaching the air supply hose, a pipe running inside the pillar connecting to the swivel fitting, and a connector to which the air hose for the hoist can be attached. Top entry systems are also available.
Top Entry Collector Assembly
Top entry electrical collector assembly may be used on all size cranes where electrical power source can be connected from the top of the jib. Internal wiring in the pillar is not necessary.
Hand Geared Rotation
Tagline Festoon System
An improved festoon system is offered which includes a messenger wire, swivel eye pulleys, and cable connections, with capabilities for attaching round cable.
CUSTOM DESIGNED JIB CRANES
Standard Jib Cranes
Introduction to Floor Mounted Jib Cranes
Heavy duty floor mounted jib cranes are designed and constructed for industrial use with years of trouble-free service.
The jib crane boom is fabricated out of a steel I-beam or a wide flange beam and has removable end stops. A machined lower roller carriage is housed in the jib crane head section that features heavy steel side plates. The lower roller carriage is mounted on adjustable tension bolts to allow for field adjustments. The support column for the jib crane is constructed out of steel pipe with a heavy base plate and reinforcing gussets.
Introduction to Wall Mounted Jib Cranes
Wall Mounted jib cranes are constructed from high grade steel components and are designed for trouble free use. The hinges are equipped with self-lubricating Teflon bearings and hardened pins.
Full Cantilevered Wall Mount
This style of wall mounted jib crane is ideal when maximum head room is needed for your lifting application. The boom has 180° of manual rotation. Please contact the factory for other options and accessories.
Overbraced Tie Rod Wall Mount
The overbraced tie rod wall mounted jib crane provides economical hook coverage with 180° manual rotation. The tie rod has threaded ends and will allow easy field adjustments. Assembly required at installation.
Introduction to Portable Jib Cranes
The fully portable jib crane eliminates any need for costly site preparation and footing expenses required for conventional floor mount jib cranes. The design of this jib allows easy transportation around the shop floor by fork truck. This means it can serve multiple uses and applications. It can be used in upper floors of your facility and then stored out of the way.
Add-on Jib Crane Motorized Drive Kit
Reduce Worker Strain and Prevent Injuries! The motorized Jib Crane Drive Kit can be added to any new or existing heavy duty jib crane. The kit can be field installed and provides 360 degree powered boom rotation.
