Jib cranes from Millsom Materials Handling can be selected from a standard range of capacities and reaches, or can be made to suit the customer’s specific requirements. The jib cranes are available up to a lifting capacity of 5000kg, and a slewing radius of up to 8m.
Millsom Jib cranes come in a combination of two main arm configurations, and two main support configurations.
The slewing arm comes in two designs: Top Braced and Low Headroom. The Top Braced design is the lightest and most cost effective type of arm manufactured by Millsom Materials Handling.
Capacities up to 500kg utilise the advantages of Millsom tracks and accessories to keep a low weight, low rolling friction materials handling device. This design is commonly used on the JUMBO vacuum tube lifters. Capacities up to 5000kg are manufactured using "I" beams.
The Low Headroom design uses a horizontal "I" beam configuration, and has been manufactured to give the best effective head height in low ceiling or dimensionally restrictive environments.
The arm supports come in two designs: Free Standing and Column Mounted. The Free Standing Jib Crane comes with an arm of the customer’s choice, and a post which is bolted to a concrete floor.
Depending on the capacity of the crane, and the reach of the arm, the crane is either fixed to the concrete using high capacity chemically set anchors, or a new concrete footing is poured, with bolts set into the concrete.
The Column Mounted design is for fixing jib arms to an existing building column. The mounting bracket can be made to suit all applications, with a variety of fixing methods. This configuration is cost effective as a support post is not needed.
