Jib crane is a type of crane, which has a horizontal arm (known as the jib) that supports a moveable hoist fixed to a wall or to a floor-mounted pillar. ‘Articulating jib cranes’ are like jib cranes but with more flexibility of movement. An articulated jib crane has a joint at the midpoint which allows it to position loads in places you cannot reach with traditional jibs. Articulating Jib Cranes are able to lift, move, spot and position loads around corners, through doorways, around obstructions, under machinery and containers, and service any place between the pivot anchor and the far reach of the jib. Their biggest benefit is that they provide easy rotation while positioning loads throughout the crane’s coverage area. This allows the jib to wrap around obstructions, or to approach a wall, where a straight jib might not be able to operate. Articulated jibs are easier to move than straight jib cranes. Compared to the traditional jib crane, they are also beneficial when the load needs to be manipulated.
Conco® is one of the leading articulating jib crane manufacturers in USA. Conco® offers a complete variety of articulating jib cranes. These are:
- Articulating Jib Arms: It is a horizontal positioning device used for reaching into accessible areas where work cell limitations preclude the use of an XY rail system or manipulator. It is an ergonomic material handling system as it utilizes the two 360° pivot arms that enable it to reach into confined areas.
- Articulating Jib Hoists: The Articulating Jib Hoist offers the features of articulated jibs, combined with the strength to lift and position all types of payloads. With the hoist located behind the second arm, the Conco® AJH is ideal for low headroom application and has the ability to maneuver around objects with full reach-in capability.
- Articulating Jib Lifters: The Conco® Articulating Jib Lifter (AJL) is a horizontal and vertical positioning device, with an air balancer built into the second arm. The AJL is built for reaching into inaccessible areas where headroom limitations preclude the use of a conventional balancer.
These articulating jib cranes support almost all kinds of manipulators, balancers and hoists. They can be mounted on the floor, wall, ceiling, or bridge crane as per your requirements. They increase productivity, reduce the risk of injuries, and improve efficiency.
