           Jib Cranes are rotating types of cranes mounted on the walls, floors or existing supports used for loading-unloading material/machinery and suspending tools, with a pivoting pillar (mast) and a horizontal boom (jib). Jib Cranes support and carry moveable manual or electric hoists that can be handled easily by one man. They are the choices for material handlings in short-distance or serried places.

           Jib cranes adapt to latest and advanced technology developed in recent years, with the characteristic of unique structure and high reliability chain electric hoist. They are especially suitable for short distance, frequent & intensive lifting operation, they have the advantages of high efficiency, energy saving, convenient, small occupation, easy operation and maintenance etc, which can be operated freely within three-dimensional space.

           Fixed jib cranes, as widely used light duty hoisting equipment, are the necessary devices to improve the productivity in modern industry, referring to a fixed on wall or pillar structure to support the whole equipment. If you want a full rotation of you jib, the pillar fixed jib is a good choice, and capacity of this crane can reach 20 tons.

          With an adjustable console bearing, horizontal beam adjustment is accurate and easy, and uncontrolled beam and  trolley movements are minimized. Features to perfect usability (options) include the adjustable rotation stop with 10º increments and a 3-position lock  (-90º, 0º, +90º). Low-resistance, lightweight booms rotate easily around the column or pivot, providing an inexpensive, ergonomic solution to overhead support.

           With the touch of a button, they can handle loads precisely and effortlessly – no matter being mounted on their own pillars or on walls or columns. For loading machines, changing heavy tools or lifting work pieces onto tables for processing.

           Jib cranes are more superior than other conventional lifting equipment in some occasions that need intensive transportation in short distance. The working  strength is light intensity. They consists of column, rotating arm rotation driving device and electric hoist. Lower end of the column is fixed on the concrete foundation by anchor bolts, and cycloidal reducer drives the jib to rotate. Electric hoists on the slewing beams run from left to  right as a straight line and lift the heavy objects. Built-in jib crane traveling mechanism adopts the special plastic engineering wheel with rolling bearings; this kind of travelling mechanism is particularly beneficial for improving the hook stroke, as its small friction force, size structure, and it can run lightly.

           Motorized jib cranes are available in the Free Standing, Wall Cantilever, Wall Bracket, and Mast Type Series.

           The  standard jib cranes normally include wall-mounted slewing jib cranes, column-mounted slewing jib cranes and mobile slewing jib crane. The slewing jib cranes can be adapted to individual requirements like outdoor operation, explosion-proof versions according to ATEX etc.

           Portable jib cranes come with all the features and components like the standard jib crane, with only few minor differences. The base of the portable jib crane is very lightweight, making the unit easy for transportation which means the portable jib crane can be positioned very close to the working area for completing the tasks in the most efficient manner. The portability of this crane can be accomplished by either a forklift or a standard pallet jack. The portable jib crane which is electrically powered for easier operation can be operated easily by anyone in the workshop without training then productivity and safety on the job site are increased.

           They are perfect underneath large bridge cranes utilized in open areas and outdoor applications --work stations, workshops, loading docks, wood  factories, steel mills, stone factories, nuclear and other power stations, railway stations, storage, marinas, ships, ship yards, stockyards, dredgers, and other fixed. Small localized places or in machining and assembly operations where they can be overlapped with other jib cranes to provide staged coverage, in other words, they are highly adaptable for changing work environment. The portable jib cranes are placed on a movable concrete block which means they can be mounted on a metal heavy-duty block, often referred as portable jib crane base.

           They are also called wall/cantilever mounting jib cranes, Wall Cantilever Jib Cranes, 360 Degree Jib Crane, Structural Beam Jib Cranes, Motorized Jib Cranes, Slewing Jib Cranes, Free Standing Jib Cranes, Sleeve Mounted Jib Crane, Foundation mounted jib crane, Floor Base Plate Mounted Jib Crane, Wall-travelling Jib Crane, Pillar Jib Crane, small jib crane, etc. They are all built to ANSI and OSHA specifications.
