Jib Cranes For Manufacturing

Processes in factories take time, especially if it involves lifting loads that strain the worker there for causing them to slow down, these types of processes can be completed much quicker with the assistance of Lifting Equipment such as Jib Cranes.

Swing Jibs offer horizontal and vertical travel, ideal for suspending tools and lifting loads with capacities up to 5 Tonnes with standard deliveries there is pretty much a Jib Crane to suit all manufacturing where localised lifting and transporting is required. Jib Cranes can be manual or electrically operated depending on the specification requirements and buyer budget with single or dual speed operation.

Some companies on the market offer installation and commissioning of Jib Cranes while others just supply and deliver.

Points to consider when purchasing a Jib Crane:

  • Do you have a forklift on site? If not there are solutions
  • Is there clear access to the building for installation such as roller shutter doors to allow the forklift to enter the area?
  • Will you require a floor counter plate or do you prefer to drill the floor and add a base plate?
  • How long can you wait?
  • Is there a 3 phase power supply?

There is lots more to consider when purchasing a Jib Crane but those are the most important points of information that one would require. Others would include things like capacity, height of lift, sizes of the crane, speeds and that nature of things which can again be tailored to suit a budget.
