Portable Jib Crane with Articulating Forearm

Air Technical Industries (ATI) has developed a new portable jib crane with articulating forearm featuring 360° rotation and a telescopic mast.

The main benefit of the Portable Jib Crane Articularm is portability, which enables the portable jib crane to be used anywhere, anytime for indoor and outdoor use without permanent installation. The unit provides on the spot handling and it can operate in harmony with big and bulky overhead cranes.

The 6' long articulating forearm rotates 360°, providing 100% coverage within the work area. The 10' main beam also rotates 360° for a total work area of 16' radius.

The unit is equipped with an optional load balancer, making the load weightless. This ergonomic tool helps lift and place any component with precise positioning for assembly. Other industrial applications include machine loading, transferring, stacking, packing, inspection, assembly, maintenance and more.

The Portable Jib Crane Articularm is available in three versions:

  • Stationary, permanent floor mounted arm
  • Portable, self-supporting counterweight jib crane with four-way fork pockets
  • Combination unit with telescopic mast.

Operators can operate at different heights to reach over, above and around obstacles. The telescoping mast can be used for actual load lifting without use of a hoist. Its versatility comes into play where limited overhead space or higher ceiling heights exist. The telescoping mast feature is also useful for reducing the overall height of the crane for storage or transportation. The lifting action is hydraulically actuated.

The combination of any version or options can be selected to meet user needs. Other options available are powered mast rotation and powered forearm rotation. Any selected combination can be used with optional electric hoist or load balancer.

Capacities available are 500, 1,000 and 2,000 lbs. The beam height is 8', 10', 12', 16' and 20'. The power options are 110 volts single phase, 240-480 volts 3 phase as well as air powered hoist and mast lift for hazardous environments.

The jib crane is constructed of heavy duty steel welded construction for rugged industrial use. Corrosive or marine environment stainless steel construction is also available.

The mast rotation and forearm rotation feature precision bearings to enable easy and smooth operation.
