Mast Type Jib Crane

Our mast type jib cranes are a perfect cost-effective solution that provides for dramatically reduced forces to supporting structures. Mast style jib cranes are floor-supported and top-stabilized cranes that typically do not require special foundations. Many of these incorporate safety features such as braking devices that are capable of keeping the load suspended even during a power loss. Other features designed to enhance safety in industrial environments include limiters that halt motion as soon as the lifting hook reaches its maximum safe height.

There are so many reasons why it makes sense to add a Gorbel jib crane to your facility. These machines can add a host of benefits that make your work easier, faster and more efficient.

Among the many advantages these can bring to your operations are:

  • Higher production — Because it can take the strain off your employees when it comes to lifting heavy objects and loads, these cranes make work faster and more efficient. With more loads being moved with greater speed, you can enjoy higher production.
  • Enhanced safety — These cranes eliminate the need for human workers to lift materials, which reduces the risk of repetitive stress injuries to a significant degree. They’re also secure enough that there’s very little chance of them falling and causing a hazardous situation.
  • More versatility — Jib cranes come in all shapes and sizes, making them capable of performing a wide range of lifting tasks around your facility. Having one installed in your workspace means you have a solution that can handle many different jobs with ease.
  • Reduced costs — These are highly energy efficient and they require much less maintenance than other types of solutions. This means having them in your facility can save you a lot of money in the long run compared to other lifting options.
  • Compact size — One of the biggest issues with other types of lifting equipment is that they take up a lot of space. This leads to you potentially making some very difficult decisions about how to best utilize your production floor. Jib crane hoists, on the other hand, offer a smaller footprint as well as a 360-degree range of motion.
  • Easy installation — Because they don’t take much time or effort to get up and running, there’s no need to worry about having to bring your entire operation to a grinding halt during the installation process.
  • Greater durability — A crane is a major investment for your facility, and the last thing you want is to have it fail or suffer a lot of downtime. Fortunately, a jib crane is one of the most durable choices you have. Having one of these in your workspace means you can count on reliable performance for a long time to come.
