Ingersoll Rand, Davidson, N.C., a pioneer in the development of overhead material handling equipment, has launched its new line of jib crane products designed to meet overhead support needs, particularly those with limited headroom.
"These first four models to be released represent common configurations our customers need every day to solve their lifting problems," said Jeff Baker, category manager, industrial lifting, global product management.
Ideally suited to applications with low ceilings or overhead obstructions, the no tie-rod design supports both air balancers and hoist applications. Jib cranes with the rail option use precision aluminum Ingersoll Rand enclosed track rail for the boom, resulting in an ergonomic, lightweight boom with rolling resistance.
The capacity rating on each crane includes the weight of the hoist or lifting device. For example, a 550 pound capacity jib can be directly paired with a 0.25 ton capacity hoist and all are designed in accordance with AISC Steel Construction, ANSI B30.11, and ANSI MH27.2.
The new cranes can be paired with a wide variety of powered or manual hoists or balancers. Whether applications require a beam clamp, anI-Beam trolley, or a rail trolley, the 360 degree rotation jibs are an ideal solution. Hoist trolleys for use on the jibs are sold separately, and balancer trolleys can be ordered as part of the configured balance by adding either a TR (I-Beam) or an A2 (A2 aluminum rail) to the end of the balancer model number.
