Articulated Jib Cranes

Articulated Jib Cranes for Better Performance 

At Givens Lifting Systems, our articulating jib cranes are designed and manufactured to be the lightest in the industry and are specially designed to meet the unique needs of your industry.
Articulating jib cranes are ideal for situations where loads need to be transferred where traditional jib cranes may not reach. An articulated jib crane has a joint at the midpoint. This allows the jib to wrap around obstructions, or to approach a wall, where a straight jib might not be able to operate. Articulated jibs are generally-speaking easier to move than straight jib cranes, but they are more expensive.   

Providing Workstation Flexibility

Articulated jib cranes are a great solution when the removal of beams and columns is not necessarily an option within the work environment. Compared to the traditional jib crane, they are also beneficial when a significant manipulation of the load is required. They can maneuver loads around obstructions and through doorways with ease.

A Fixed Hoist

Articulated jib cranes have no crane rail and no trolley. The hoist is fixed at the end of the boom.

Custom Arm Lengths

Arm lengths are chosen to suit the task at hand. Arm 1 (nearest the column) and Arm 2 are each available in 10" increments.

Rated for Moment Capacity

Our articulated jib cranes are rated for their moment capacity, in-lbs. For example, an AJ60 has a moment capacity of 60,000 in-lb from the column. 

Estimating the Moment

The moment can be estimated by: Boom length x (hoist weight + end effector weight + load weight) x 1.35
