Articulating Jib Cranes can lift loads around corners and columns, reach into or under machinery and containers, and service virtually any point between the pivot anchor and the far reach of the boom.
These jib cranes support nearly any type of manipulator, balancer, or hoist. Plus, Spanco is the only manufacturer to offer internally piped air in its articulating jib cranes. Our articulating jibs can be mounted on your floor, wall, ceiling, or bridge crane to best suit your needs. These jib cranes support nearly any type of manipulator, balancer, or hoist.
400 Series Bridge-Mounted and Ceiling-Mounted Articulating Jib Cranes
Freestanding Jib Cranes install almost anywhere, including outside. These foundation-mounted, freestanding jibs offer higher capacities, longer spans, and greater rotation than our wall-mounted jib cranes:
100 Series Freestanding Jib Cranes Base Plate Mounted
Mast-Mounted Jib Cranes provide full 360-degree rotation while eliminating the cost of a special foundation, which can cost more than the crane.
As a lower cost alternative to freestanding jib cranes, these full-feature mast style cranes:
201 Series Mast Jib Cranes — Drop Cantilever: Identical to the 200 Series with the addition of side-plate connections to permanently “drop mount” the boom at any specified height on the mast. Drop cantilever booms allow for clearance from overhead obstructions that are located below the top of the mast.
RETROFIT JIB DRIVES
Retrofit Jib Drives feature a modular design that bolts onto the back of any box style head assembly.
Our jib drive features a high-efficiency electric motor and ultra reliable worm gear reducer.
The worm gear drives a set of large steel rollers fitted with polyurethane treads for exceptional durability and traction on the crane’s mast. The rollers are constantly kept at the correct pressure against the mast via a spring-loaded tension adjustment mechanism, assuring smooth operation.
Jib Drive Control Panel: Includes mainline contactor, reversing magnetic contactors, thermal overload, 110V fused control transformer, branch circuit fusing to crane motor, and solid state “soft start” control adjustable for time and torque — all in a NEMA 3R enclosure.
Wall-Mounted Jib Cranes require no floor space and no special foundations. They quickly fold out of the way of large overhead cranes.
Wall-Traveling Jib Cranes provide long lateral movement of materials without taking up floor space or interfering with large overhead cranes. Wall-traveling jibs increase overall plant productivity by quickly handling smaller lifts.
You can cover an entire series of workstations using one agile wall-traveling crane for (conceivably) the entire length of your building.
Spanco Wall-Traveling Jib Cranes are cost-effective, custom engineered solutions that are specifically designed to meet your production needs and building specifications:
Workstation Jib Cranes offer easy, ergonomic lift and transfer of repetitive loads. These small, nimble cranes are faster than motorized jibs and very affordable. Our workstation jibs can be permanently floor-mounted, portable with counterweight bases, or wall-mounted to best suit your needs:
