Upgraded technology: With the development of science and technology, the design and manufacturing technology of jib cranes is constantly updated. Some more advanced materials and structural designs are applied to jib cranes, greatly improving their safety, load-bearing capacity and work efficiency.

Multi-functional development: jib cranes are becoming more and more versatile, not only limited to simple cargo lifting, but also can be used to build cranes, loading and unloading of goods, stacking and other work. Some jib cranes can also be flexibly adjusted and converted according to demand, improving the comprehensive utilization of equipment.

In addition, jib cranes will continue to develop and innovate to provide more efficient, safer and more environmentally friendly handling solutions for various industries.


Types of Jib Crane

Free Standing Jib Crane

A Free Standing Jib Crane is a crane that is set up independently of any building or structural support. It usually has a base that is fixed to the ground and a jib that is mounted on the base and can rotate freely. Self-supporting jib cranes are suitable for applications that require material handling in large working areas, such as factories and warehouses. The advantage is that the installation position is flexible, not restricted by the building structure, and can be moved and repositioned as needed.


Wall Mounted Jib Crane

Wall Mounted Jib Crane is a lifting equipment fixed on the wall. One end of the jib is fixed to the wall and the other end extends out of the wall for material handling in the working area near the wall. Wall-mounted jib cranes are suitable for applications where space is limited or where operation is required in a specific area. The advantages are space-saving, easy installation, and the ability to fully utilize existing building structures.


Wall Travelling Jib Crane

A Wall Travelling Jib Crane is a lifting device that can move horizontally on a wall. It is usually mounted on an elevated track on the wall and can move freely on the track to cover a larger working area. Wall-mounted jib cranes are suitable for applications that require material handling in long straight or curved working areas. The advantages are high flexibility, the ability to cover a wider working area, and improved work efficiency.


Movable Jib Crane

A Movable Jib Crane is a lifting device that can be moved on the ground. It usually has a wheeled chassis that can be moved freely on the ground to accommodate different work areas. Mobile jib cranes are suitable for applications that require material handling in multiple work areas, such as airports, terminals and construction sites. Its advantage is that it is easy to move and can be quickly adapted to different working environments and needs.

Benefits of Jib Crane

As an indispensable lifting equipment in modern industrial production, jib cranes have many significant advantages:

First of all, jib cranes are compact and flexible in design, which makes it possible to efficiently complete lifting operations in a limited space. Whether Free Standing Jib Crane, Wall Mounted Jib Crane, Wall Travelling Jib Crane or Movable Jib Crane can be customized according to the specific needs of the workplace, thus maximizing the adaptability to different working environments.

Secondly, jib cranes are easy and convenient to operate. With the efficient electric hoist or manual hoist, the operator can easily realize the lifting, moving and positioning of materials, which greatly improves the work efficiency. At the same time, its humanized design also makes the operation process more comfortable and reduces the labor intensity of the operator.

In addition, the jib crane has high safety performance. A variety of safety protection devices, such as limit switches, overload protection, etc., ensure the safety and reliability of the equipment during operation. This not only protects the safety of the operator, but also avoids equipment damage and material loss.

The jib crane also has a good economy. It can be configured according to actual needs, avoiding unnecessary waste. At the same time, its efficient working performance can also save a lot of labor, material resources and time costs for the enterprise, thus improving the overall economic benefits of the enterprise.

Finally, the maintenance and repair of jib cranes is relatively simple. The structure of the equipment is reasonably designed, which makes the daily inspection and maintenance work easier. In addition, high-quality components and wear-resistant materials also extend the service life of the equipment, reducing the frequency of repair and replacement.


In summary, jib cranes play an increasingly important role in modern industrial production with their flexible design, efficient working performance, excellent safety performance, good economy and easy maintenance.
