1 If you are looking for a material handling facility that would streamline your production then you would consider supplementing a jib crane. They are a pretty simple mechanical system which has a horizontal jib or boom used to support a movable beam or hoist which is fixed to the wall or the pillar that is mounted on the floor. Used mostly for military and industrial applications the systems swings attached to an arc facilitating additional lateral movement. However depending on its applications and the installation premises there are various types available to suit the unique need of various industries. With fairly simple design jib cranes come with varied capacities ranging from 250 lbs. to 15 tons depending on its application. Its ergonomic design is very useful in the production environment as they help increase productivity and takes care of the safety in production plants. Design Components and Features With the basic design description of jib crane you might be having the basic idea of it. But let me take it in simple terms to explain you the idea of jib cranes better. They feature

2 simple operations and require less maintenance as compared to other workstation cranes. Let’s have a look at each of its component in order to understand its design well. Boom or Reach - The horizontal beam on which the trolley travels back and forth while in operation Pillar or Mast - The vertical pillar used to support the boom on the mast and freestanding systems Hoist – The hoist is a movable element that is used for the lateral movements in order to lift place and lower the load. Trolley – The motion of the trolley can be powered by motor pneumatics or it can be manual. The trolley carries the hoist wire rope or chain and the hook is attached at the end. Rotation – You can achiever 360 degree rotation on free standing and mast type cranes. While on wall and column mounted cranes you can achieve 180 to 200 degree rotation of the boom. Power – Electric rings or pneumatic air lines can be powered on the top or bottom of the mast to assist rotation. Controlling – On motorized and pneumatic jib systems there is a push button controller that can be used to control the rotation motion of the hoist and the motion of trolley. Rotation Stop – If a wall or any other obstruction comes on its way rotation stop feature can help stop the motion of the crane to avoid the collision.
