Several styles of Jib Cranes are available for
specific application needs:
Mounted to a proper foundation, the Jib Crane can have a 360 degree
rotation or less with Boom stops. For safety and strength, the top
plate of the Mast has a piloted flange bearing with the pivot
shaft extended through the bearing and top plate. We have seen competitor
jibs with a tapered bearing and race welded to the top plate which
under right conditions, such as shock loading, the complete boom
section can dislodge and race to the ground. With our jib crane
design, this cannot happen.
Foundation Mounted Jib Crane
This style of Jib Crane is similar to a Base Plate model jib except
that the mast pipe is embedded in the foundation to allow more floor
space around jib.
Wall Mount Cantilever
This model is mounted on a wall or column. It allows for a maximum
lifting height with 200 degree rotation. Application requirements
for a wall cantilever jib are that (1) there is a structurally sound
wall or column to mount it on, and (2) there is sufficient clearance
above the boom throughout its rotation arc.
Wall Mount Tie Rod Jib
The Wall Mounted Tie Rod Jib is an economical jib used where the
boom can be at least 40 degrees below ceiling.
Rotating Mast Jib
This style Jib Crane can be installed without a foundation on ¼
through 2-ton models and with proper building support. Generally,
it can have a 300 degree rotation span. This jib style must be fit
to the building and the boom can be mounted at different heights
of the mast as needed.
