Articulated Jib Lifter for Reach-In Low Head Room Applications

Positech Corp., Laurens, Iowa, has introduced a new articulated jib lifter (AJL), under the Conco brand name. The lifter offers lifting capability from 165 to 665 pounds (75 to 302 kilograms) along with a lift range of up to 120 inches (3.05 meters) and a standard reach from 8 to 16 feet (2.44 to 4.88 meters) and can be used in a broad range of light to heavy lifting applications. It comes standard with a threaded interface at the end of cable and a safety latch hook at the end of chain.

The secondary arm can be mounted above the primary arm in low headroom clearance applications. The primary and secondary joints come standard with 360° continuous rotation. Available options include primary and secondary axes caliper disc brakes, an adjustable secondary arm friction brake, and primary and secondary axes rotation stops to keep arms in specific zones. It can be mounted on an overhead trolley, pedestal, wall mounted or mounted on a mobile/portable base. “The reach-in coupled with the lift and load ranges of the Conco AJL make it a very versatile yet cost effective material handling solution”, states Michael Olson, president of Positech Corp.
