Jib Cranes System

A jib crane is a small overhead lifting device typically used in smaller work cell areas such as workstations, garage maintenance, consoles, etc. for repetitive and unique lifting tasks.

Jib cranes are versatile and can also be paired with overhead cranes to maximize production.

Jib Cranes Details

Customized Options

It is important to determine the weight that the jib crane will lift. The biggest reason is safety.
Lifting jib cranes more than they are designed for can be dangerous to your workers and increase the stress and maintenance of jib cranes and building superstructures.
You want to make sure your jib crane can lift enough weight for your work today and in the future.

The lift height is the distance from the floor to the saddle of the hook when the hook is in the highest position.
Lift height is a crucial metric in any project as it ensures there is enough room to lift or lift and reposition the load you are lifting.

A jib crane’s Arm length is essentially its width across the bay-or the measured center-to-center distance between the runway beams.

It’s important because it determines how much material is required to build the girders and most significantly affects the cost of the jib crane.

Voltage requirements vary depending on your location. If a manual jib crane is selected, no power supply is required.

Jib Crane Structure

Reach/Boom – The horizontal beam on which the cart travels back and forth.

Mast/Pillar – Vertical beam used to support booms on freestanding and mast systems.

Mobile Hoists – Hoists are used to lift, position, and lower loads (usually electric chain hoists or wire rope hoists).

Trolley – The movement of the trolley can be manual or electric. The trolley carries the hoist, wire rope, or chain and hooks along the entire length of the boom.

Rotation – On freestanding and mast jib cranes, you can achieve 360° boom rotation. On wall-mounted and column-mounted jib cranes, you can achieve a 180-200° rotation.

Electrification – Slip rings or pneumatic airlines can be added to the top or bottom of the mast to provide rotation assistance and allow for continuous 360° boom rotation.

Control – On an electric boom system, you can use the push button controller to control the rotation of the boom, as well as the movement of the trolley and the lifting and lowering movement of the hoist. Hoists and trolleys can use multi-speed or variable-speed control.

Hook height – how high can you or would you like to go with your lift? You need to know the lowest overhead obstacle to know how high your jib crane can be.

Rotation stop – If the crane is close to a wall or other obstacle, the rotation stop will limit the crane’s movement until it collides with a nearby object.

Frequently Asked Questions

Jib Cranes is a crane with a horizontal member, commonly known as the jib or boom. A jib is an operating arm that extends horizontally from the crane. The role of the jib is to support a movable hoist fixed to either a wall or pillar mounted on the floor.

Crane is a kind of heavy object handling equipment, and its classification is very many, such as “crane”, “tower crane”, “crown crane”, “overhead crane” and other common names refer to one or several categories of cranes.
Jib Crane is a kind of overhead crane, which is a small material handling equipment, usually used in workstations, etc., to improve production and safety.

Whether it is a wall-mounted jib crane or a floor mounted jib crane, it is a type of overhead crane that is usually used in small workspaces for unique lifting tasks, the most common places being workstations and can be combined with overhead cranes Used together, it makes the material handling more flexible.

Jibs are secondary arms that extend off of the end of a boom. They allow the crane to have the extra reach, but they often reduce the amount of weight that a crane can hoist. Jibs often use a lattice design in order to reduce the amount of weight that they add to a load.

Jib cranes are usually electric swivels and manual swivels. Electric rotation is suitable for jib cranes with larger lifting capacity, and manual rotation is suitable for jib cranes with smaller lifting capacity. Of course, these can be customized according to your needs.
