Articulating Jib Cranes

Lightweight Articulated Jib Cranes

At Givens Lifting Systems, we design and manufacture lightweight articulated jib cranes in the United States to meet your specific industry requirements.
Often in industrial spaces, there are objects that need to be avoided. When traditional jib cranes cannot reach, articulated jib cranes are the ideal lifting solution. The joint at the midpoint of our articulated jib cranes allows the jib to move around obstructions and approach walls where a straight jib would not be able to operate. Articulated jibs are generally-speaking easier to move than straight jib cranes, but they are more expensive.

Articulates Jib Cranes for Versatile Workspaces

1. Providing Workstation Flexibility

When the removal of beams and columns is not an option within the work environment, articulated jib cranes are a great solution. Articulated jib cranes provide a solution for loads were significant manipulation is required. These custom industrial cranes move loads around obstacles and doorways making them more versatile than traditional jib cranes.

Articulated Jib Crane Components

2. A Fixed Hoist

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

3. Custom Articulating Arm Lengths

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

Articulated Jib Crane Models

4. Rated for Moment Capacity

We offer articulated jib cranes in these models: 
  •  AJ60
  •  AJ120
  •  AJ250 

Articulated Jib Cranes 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.

How to Estimate the Moment Capacity

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