Why Every Overhead Lifting Solution Is Customized

Overhead lifting solutions such as cranes and hoists are immensely popular in manufacturing and warehousing operations. Overhead material handling devices are made of extremely durable, heavy-duty, and long-lasting materials. Often remaining in service for decades, these systems are engineered for a longer lifespan and feature fewer wear and service points than other floor-based transport equipment options. Additionally, overhead lifting solutions offer the benefit of space-saving. Nevertheless, there is a growing trend of customized material handling solutions as they offer various options for making tweaks and changes to the equipment according to your needs and requirements. But overhead lifting solutions often come in so many options that they’re as good as customized. Let’s find out how.

We, at Conco, offer a wide range of overhead lifting solutions allowing you to make a number of changes to fit your requirements. Our line of overhead lifting solutions includes but is not limited to:

Articulating Jib

First and foremost, we give you the option to choose between the kinds of articulating jib cranes you want in your facility. You can go for one of the following:

Articulating Jib Arm – This is your regular articulating jib used as a horizontal positioning device to reach into inaccessible areas.

Articulating Jib Hoist – A unique jib crane, that offers the advantages of one of our fully functioning articulated jibs, integrated with the strength to lift and position all types of payloads.

Articulating Jib Lifter – This is a horizontal and vertical positioning device, with an air balancer built into the second arm.

That’s not it. There are several other customizable options with our articulating jibs. You can:

  • Choose the lifting capacity of your jib crane between Articulating Jib Light (310 lbs), Articulating Jib Standard (1000 lbs) and Articulating Jib Heavy (2000 lbs)
