A jib crane is an overhead lifting device that moves product within the radius of its arm span. This makes jib cranes ideal for applications requiring repetitive movements of material across short distances. They are especially good for moving loads in an arc around a workstation. Since jib cranes can be designed using a facility’s existing structures as supports, they can be cost-effective.

Carney Fabricating offers many models of the Jib Crane, each with their unique advantages.
Jib cranes are an effective ergonomic method of repeatedly moving heavy items quickly and cost-effectively from one workstation to another. A variety of Jib Crane options can be designed to suit the specific needs or layout of your facility.
Free standing jib cranes are used under large bridge cranes, in open areas where they can serve several workstations. They can also be overlapped with other jibs to provide staged operations.
Wall-mounted jib cranes use structurally adequate walls or columns as their support. These provide effective lifting coverage to supplement an overhead crane system or for a series of overlapping work cells.
