Free Standing Articulating Jib Crane Features:

  • Floor mounted jib for easy installation and relocation.
  • Capacities from 150 to 2000 lbs., spans to 16 ft.
  • 360° rotation at both pivot points. (optional)
  • Can be used with hook mounted lifting devices. (electric, air, or vacuum)

Ceiling Mounted Articulating Jib Cranes by Gorbel

These Gorbel jibs can move loads around corners, reach into machines or doorways, and swing under obstructions. This versatile crane is perfect in applications that require an operator to rotate the jib in close to the pivot point.

Ceiling Mounted Articulating Jib Crane Features:

  • Can be mounted to a platform supported from a Work Station Bridge Crane to allow the jib to swing under an obstruction or outside the normal coverage of a bridge crane.
  • Can be used with hook mounted lifting devices. (electric hoist, air, and vacuum)

Wall/Column Mounted Articulating Gorbel Jib Cranes

These Gorbel jibs can move loads around corners, reach into machines or doorways, and swing under obstructions. This crane is perfect in applications that require an operator to rotate the jib in close to the pivot point.

Wall Mounted Articulating Jib Crane Features:

  • Capacities from 150-2000 lbs., spans up to 16 ft.
  • 200° rotation on primary jib boom.
  • Suited for applications where maneuvering around obstacles or swinging under obstructions is necessary.

These Gorbel jibs are floor supported, top stabilized, and capable of 360° rotation via a top and bottom bearing assembly. MT Series Cranes are available in two styles:

Mast Type Jib Crane Features:

  • Mast Type Full Cantilever - Provides maximum amount of lift where full use of available headroom is desired
  • Mast Type Drop Cantilever - Jib boom can be placed at a specific height to clear overhead obstructions

Aluminum Tie Rod Workstation Gorbel Jib Cranes

These Gorbel jibs use a patented light-weight, high strength extruded aluminum enclosed track. This revolutionary track reduces the rotational dead weight of the boom by 56% to 68%, making the jib up to 40% easier to rotate than comparable I-beam Jib Cranes. The tie rod design minimizes deflection and is more precise when positioning loads than other Jibs Cranes.

Aluminum Tie Rod Workstation Jib Crane Features:

  • Can be mounted to wall or column
  • Available in capacities from 150 - 2000 lbs. with spans up to 20 ft.
  • Has less deflection for easier load control and positioning
