UPMAX Recently New Project Case- 1t Jib Crane
- Dec 07, 2017 -

Common Applications:

The most common applications for jibs are individual workstations; e.g., machine tools, welding/fabrication stations, and some small assembly stations. They are also often used in simple loading / unloading operations where it is not necessary to spot a load precisely.

Jib cranes most often handle lighter loads at lower duty cycles than their bridge and gantry crane counterparts. A "classic" application for jibs is to outfit an assembly floor with a series of jibs at individual workstations, which are then supported by an overhead crane to lift / carry full assemblies. The hook coverage is limited to the boom length (typically a maximum of 20 ft.). The hook operates along a boom which rotates about a fixed point.

If there is a need for precise locating of heavy loads, a large area of hook coverage, or frequent use for heavy loads, the jib crane may not be the best solution.
