The Gorbel Work Station Jib Cranes,available from Total Lifting Solution s, are a lightweight alternative to the traditional,heavy I-Beam Jib Cranes. These jibs are designed to operate within circularareas and support tool balancers, air balancers, vacuum lifters, and hoists. Theycan hold up to 500kgs with dimension spans of up to 4.8m.
When floor mounted, the Jib Cranes canaccommodate up to a 360 degree rotation and they can be bolted directly to anexisting floor without adding special foundations. These floor mounted modelsincorporate a vertical mast (fixed to the floor or footing) and a horizontalboom along which a hoist trolley can rotate around the mast to offer fullcoverage within a circular work area. When column or wallmounted, the JibCranes allow up to a 200 degree rotation. In this model, the boom rotates on apivot fixed to the wall of a building providing coverage over a semi circularwork area.
The enclosed track for the boom assemblyhelps to reduce dead weight for easier rotation than other I-beam jibs. TheGorbel jib cranes also feature a retaining pin through the pivot pin tominimise accidental upward dislodgment of the boom assembly. A hoist trolley is included.
