Articulated jib cranes

Articulated jib cranes offer more flexibility than cantilever or tie rod jib cranes. They can be used in spaces that are narrow or difficult to reach—to get around a building column, for example. They are the perfect work tools for applications requiring speed and precision. Articulated jib cranes have either an electric chain hoist, a pneumatic chain hoist or a tube lifter to which a manipulator with suction cups can be added.

Free-standing or wall-mounted

Frontenac Technologies articulated jib cranes can be free-standing, wall-mounted or column-mounted. The free-standing models are anchored to a concrete floor. Wall-mounted articulated jib cranes are anchored to a wall or column. Free-standing jib cranes can rotate a full 360 degrees, whereas movement is restricted in the wall-mounted version. Wall-mounted articulated jib cranes are ideal when floor space is limited, to maximize the work area for personnel.
