Heavy weights must be moved easily, rapidly, and safely inside small work areas in industries such as manufacturing, welding, and sheet metal fabrication. Jib cranes and other fixed overhead lifting equipment are ideal for this application.
Jib cranes have a simple design: a single horizontal arm swivels on a vertical support beam, carrying a lifting crane apparatus that can lift loads wherever within reach of the arm. Floor-mounted jib cranes are extremely versatile: if mounted far enough away from any walls or barriers, they can move 360 degrees within a workspace. Pillar-mounted jib cranes, which have a stronger mounting attachment within the structure's foundation, can provide the same range of motion as pillar-mounted jib cranes but with a higher lifting capability.
Other types of jib cranes include cantileered or wall-mounted jib cranes. These jib cranes attach to a building's vertical support beam and rotate 180 degrees. This mounting design is great for achieving maximum floor space.
- Hoist Authority offers jib cranes with weight capacities ranging from 1/8 ton to 5 tons.
