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.  And since jib cranes save space by using a facility’s existing structures as supports, they can be very cost-effective.

Multi-Purpose Jib Crane

  • All units are available with manual or powered trolleys and hoists
  • Choose from standard models for basic requirements or custom designs that go above and beyond to meet more unique material handling needs

Carney is always happy to discuss how a custom jib crane can offer the perfect solution for your lifting applications.

Carney Fabricating offers many models of the Jib Crane, and each of them (P, P-BQ, P-SB, WB or BQ) has its own advantage in different settings.

Free Standing Jib Cranes are used under large bridge cranes, in open areas where they can serve several workstations. You can also overlap them with other jibs to provide staged operation.
