Portable Counter Balance Jib Crane with 360 Degree Rotation

Air Technical Industries has announced the development of a new series of portable jib cranes that are self-supportive and can be used any time, any place, indoors or outdoors, without installation. The portable jib crane has a counterweight built in to the base for stability and fork pockets for portability. It is convertible and can be detached from the base and mounted to the floor.

"When the job is done, the crane can be easily moved out of the way, since it is not bolted to the concrete floor, as it is in the case with traditional jib cranes," said a company spokesperson. "The ordinary jib crane can only be used at one fixed location and is limited in flexibility that the new portable crane offers."

The crane features a 360° boom rotation manually operated and there is an optional powered boom rotation available. The crane can be equipped with a manual hoist or electrical powered hoist, 110 volt single phase or 240 - 480 volts, 3 phase. For hazardous areas, air powered pneumatic spark proof hoists are available.

Portable jib cranes are built of heavy-duty industrial welded steel construction for safe and long lasting use. The rotation is on a heavy duty Timken roller bearing and precision built cam followers for smooth rotation. Cranes are available in capacities of 500, 1,000 or 2,000 lbs. with a span length of 6' to 12' and an under beam height of up to 24'.

The cranes feature two different counter balance designs: one is counterweight built into the enlarged base for stability and the other is mounted on the rotating beam so the counterweight is always on the opposite side of the payload. The specially designed counterweight base has four-way fork pockets for easy accessibility from any side.

The portable jib crane can be used for on the spot lifting and handling of heavy components at different locations. It can be a complement to a larger overhead crane to save the time for heavier lifts, while using the portable jib crane under the overhead crane to help out.
