The term “Jib Crane” covers a design of cranes that has a rotating boom attached to a mast which is held in a vertical position by floor and ceiling mounting or by wall bracket mounting. However, the most widely used design is the Self-Supported type at the base.By handling material to and from machine tools, forging presses and other production machines, Jib Cranes relieve congestion and increases production, with only a relatively small investment. These cranes relieve the overhead crane of much work and reduce waiting time.
“TechMech Cranes” range of Jib Cranes (upto 5.0 Ton Capacity & 8.0 mtr. Jib Radius) consists of the following:-
BASE MOUNTED type:
This self-supported jib crane is designed for base plate mounting on concrete foundation, and has 360° rotation.
FIXED WALL BRACKET type:
This jib crane is deigned for wall / RCC Column bracket mounting and has 200° maximum rotation.Covers the area nea the bracket mounting without obstruction at floor level.
TRAVELLING WALL BRACKET type:
Covers the lengthwise area near the building columns without obstruction at floor level. It requires special design for columns. These cranes do not rotate but travels on runway tracks suspended along building / shed columns.
All the three motions (hoisting, trolley travel and rotation) may be hand-operated or electrified or a combination such as electric hoist with hand power rotation and trolley travel. These type of cranes are widely found in applications like fabrication shops, machine shops, assembly floors, loading and unloading purposes and can be both outdoor as well as indoor duty
