Air Technical Industries (ATI) announces the development of a new, one of a kind Portable Jib Crane with Articulating Forearm, 360° rotation and telescopic mast.
The main benefit 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 most exciting new feature is the 6 ft long articulating forearm feature that rotates 360° providing 100% coverage within the work area. The 10 ft main beam also rotates 360° for a total work area of 16 ft radius.
The unit is equipped with an optional load balancer making the load weightless. It is an ideal ergonomic tool to help lift and place any component with precise positioning for assembly.
It can be used for many industrial applications such as: machine loading, lifting, transferring, stacking, packing, holding parts for inspection, assembly, maintenance, etc.
The Portable Jib Crane Articularm is available in three versions:
• Stationary, permanent floor mounted arm.
• Portable, self-supporting counterweight jib crane with 4-way fork pockets.
• Combination unit with unique telescopic mast.
Experience a new dimension of versatility. You can operate at different heights to reach over, above and beyond to reach around obstacles.
The telescoping mast can be used for actual load lifting without use of a hoist. It’s versatility comes into play where limited overhead space as well as higher ceiling heights exist. The telescoping mast feature is also useful for reducing the overall height of the crane for storage or transportation, and then extend it to full working height during operation. The lifting action is hydraulically actuated.
The combination of any version or options can be selected to meet the user’s need. 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, 1000 and 2000 lbs. The beam height is 8, 10, 12, 16 and 20 feet. 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 construction of this special jib crane is 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 are featured with precision bearings to enable easy and smooth operation. The Portable Jib Crane Articularm is an ergonomically designed tool to help in multiple tasks to increase efficiency, save time, make the job easier, and improve the morale of the work force the smart way by having the worker use more brain than muscle.
