What Are Travelling Slewing Jib Cranes?

Jib cranes are a type of overhead lifting device often used for repetitive tasks. They are widely used in automotive and construction industries because of their versatility and cost effectiveness. To turn this into a travelling slewing jib crane, the arm runs horizontally along a gantry rail. This provides horizontal travel, allowing the jib arm to move across the length of the assembly line.

The jib crane offers 180 ° rotation and, when combined with a hoist, provides full use of the arm’s radius. It enables the lifting device to move along the arm to complete the handling operation. They are a versatile piece of equipment for any factory or workshop, as the manual slewing motion and travel along the jib makes the unit ideal for lighter capacity and precision work.

Why Are Travelling Slewing Jib Cranes Used?

Travelling slewing jib cranes are optimal for lifting loads in a space that other machines are not occupying. Mounting onto existing steelwork of an overhead crane allows them to keep the floor space free. They can operate at the same time and in the same space as the overhead crane.

Jib crane arms and gantry rails can have varying lengths, this means the travelling jib crane provides extended reach across the factory. With additional travel, this equipment can reach the far corners of the room, utilising the valuable space.

As the travelling slewing jib crane has no permanent structure that interferes with the operations of the overhead crane, it can transport components past existing equipment, freeing it to be used for other operations. 

To use this equipment to its full potential, a full turnkey solution with a hoist and below-the-hook lifting device has proven to be a dependable solution for the automotive and yellow goods industry.
