Industrial Workstation Jib Cranes
Jib Cranes are commonly used by most industries to move and place heavy loads from one location to another. They are usually equipped with wire ropes, hoist ropes or chains, are capable of moving loads both vertically and horizontally, and are available in floor and wall mounted versions.
They are among the easiest mechanical cranes to use, consisting of three major components – MAST which is the vertical support structure that holds the BOOM at a right angle, and a TROLLEY which rides horizontally back and forth along the boom and contains the hoist, wire rope and lifting hook. From a side angle the jib crane looks like an upside down “L”.
MET-TRACK® Workstation Jib Cranes
These jib cranes are an ideal solution for supporting hoists, air balancers, tool balancers, welding equipment, and vacuum lifters being used in close and confined working areas. They are available in two standard rotations, 200° or 360°, depending on the style of jib crane you choose.
The smooth and effortless jib arm rotation and trolley travel allow operators maximum control with minimal effort, which increases productivity and reduces labor costs and time. Safety is increased and injuries are reduced, because of the ease of movement and low user force required to operate the jib.
Jib Cranes Features:
- Floor mounted rotation of 200° or 360°, depending on the model.
- Ceiling mounted rotation of 200°.
- Capacities up to 1,000 lbs.
- Spans of up to 16’.
- Circular coverage.
- Floor mounted jib cranes can usually be mounted directly to standard concrete floors without the need for adding special foundations, but consult your architect to confirm this is the case for your application.
