When pillars, columns or walls aren’t available to mount a jib crane too, freestanding jibs are an option. This type of crane offers effortless rotation and consistent responsiveness when positioning loads, materials, or tools in a work cell, through a doorway, or onto machines.
These types of cranes offer 360 degree rotation at the pivot point. The second arm can be top or bottom mounted dependent on the environment and needs of the work cell.
These types of cranes can use all types of lifting devices such as electric, air, or vacuum hoists or balancers. Articulating cranes are best suited for working around obstructions or where freedom of moving the load around is required.
