Portable Jib Crane Articularm

Mentor, Ohio December 5, 2016Air Technical Industries (ATI) announces the development of a new, one of a kind Portable Jib Crane with Articulating Forearm, 360° rotation and telescopic mast.

The main benefit is portability which enables the portable jib crane to be used anywhere, anytime for indoor and outdoor use without permanent installation. The unit provides on the spot handling and it can operate in harmony with big and bulky overhead cranes.

The most exciting new feature is the 6 ft long articulating forearm feature that rotates 360° providing 100% coverage within the work area. The 10 ft main beam also rotates 360° for a total work area of 16 ft radius.

The unit is equipped with an optional load balancer making the load weightless. It is an ideal ergonomic tool to help lift and place any component with precise positioning for assembly.

It can be used for many industrial applications such as: machine loading, lifting, transferring, stacking, packing, holding parts for inspection, assembly, maintenance, etc.

The Portable Jib Crane Articularm is available in three versions:

  • Stationary, permanent floor mounted arm.

  • Portable, self-supporting counterweight jib crane with 4-way fork pockets.

  • Combination unit with unique telescopic mast.

Experience a new dimension of versatility. You can operate at different heights to reach over, above and beyond to reach around obstacles.

The telescoping mast can be used for actual load lifting without use of a hoist. It’s versatility comes into play where limited overhead space as well as higher ceiling heights exist. The telescoping mast feature is also useful for reducing the overall height of the crane for storage or transportation, and then extend it to full working height during operation. The lifting action is hydraulically actuated.

The combination of any version or options can be selected to meet the user’s need. Other options available are powered mast rotation and powered forearm rotation. Any selected combination can be used with optional electric hoist or load balancer.

Capacities available are 500, 1000 and 2000 lbs. The beam height is 8, 10, 12, 16 and 20 feet. The power options are 110 volts single phase, 240-480 volts 3 phase as well as air powered hoist and mast lift for hazardous environments.

The construction of this special jib crane is heavy duty steel welded construction for rugged industrial use. Corrosive or marine environment stainless steel construction is also available.

The mast rotation and forearm rotation are featured with precision bearings to enable easy and smooth operation. The Portable Jib Crane Articularm is an ergonomically designed tool to help in multiple tasks to increase efficiency, save time, make the job easier, and improve the morale of the work force the smart way – by having the worker use more brain than muscle.

Maximize Headroom and Avoid Overhead Obstacles

Company was looking for a way to remove a hard-to-reach part for maintenance purposes. The difficult part was they were working in tight conditions with overhead height restrictions. The parts only weighs 1000 pounds and has to be accessed at a span distance of 12 feet and a under beam height of 14 feet. Once they remove the item, they need to swing the part away from the unit. However, before they could get the piece into the aisle-way to transport it to the tool room, there was an overhead air-duct in the way. The air-duct is only 10 feet above the floor. The customer has this situation in five different areas it needs to service.

Air Technical Industries had a simple solution to their problem. The Portable Telescopic Mast Jib Crane. ATI combined 2 of its standard units to come up with this creative solution. They took a standard Portable Jib Crane and a standard Telescopic Mast Jib Crane. This one unit can be moved around with a fork truck from machine to machine. This allows the customer to purchase one unit to service all five machines instead of needing five individual floor mounted models to perform an intermittent task. The Portable Telescopic Mast Jib crane has 360 degrees of rotation and an under beam height adjustable from 8 feet to 14 feet. The customer is able to pick the parts, rotate the beam, and lower it under the 10 foot air-duct to the aisle with ease. This solution has increased their bottom line, improved efficiency, improved safety, improved morale, and expanded their employees’ ability to perform.

Standard sizes and modified units are available. Here are links to the above units that were used to make the Portable Telescopic Mast Jib Crane.

ATI’s Portable Jib Crane Saves Company from Loosing their Profit

A New England company specializing in the installation and repair of Commercial Skylights and Space Frames has a project installing 400 feet of skylights on two sides of a building that is 40 feet off the ground. Initially they were looking to have a rigging company supply a crane to move up material and other items needed to do the job. However, the end customer informed them that they could not store material or tools on the roof overnight. This phase of the project will take 2 months to complete. It did not take long to see all profits quickly evaporating from the cost of having to rent a crane 5 days a week for 2 months.

ATI’s Portable Jib Crane is self-supportive and can be used anytime, any place, indoors or outdoors, without installation. The Portable Jib Crane has a counterweight built in to the base for stability and fork pockets for portability. With the use of Air Technical Industries Portable Jib Crane they were able to have the rigging company make two lifts instead of multiple lifts over the course of 2 months. They lifted ATI’s workhorse crane the Super Master Portable Jib Crane up to the roof. Once the Portable Jib Crane was placed in the desired position they no longer needed the rental crane until the project was over. Instead, they used the Portable Jib Crane along with a powered trolley and hoist to move material and tools up to the roof. At the end of the day they would use the crane to move the same material and tools back down for storage overnight. This simple solution saved them thousands of dollars off their bottom line and in the end they actually owned the Portable Jib Crane. Which meant, the next time they use it their profits would be even larger. One crane that can be used at many locations adds great versatility and savings.

The crane features a 360° boom rotation manually operated and there is an optional powered boom rotation available. The crane can be equipped with a manual hoist or electrical powered hoist, 110 volt single phase or 240-480 volts, 3 phase. For hazardous areas, air powered pneumatic spark proof hoists are available.

Portable Jib Cranes are built of heavy duty industrial welded steel construction for safe and long lasting use. The rotation is on a heavy duty Timken roller bearing and precision built cam followers for smooth, easy, effortless rotation. Cranes are available in capacities of 500, 1000 or 2000 pounds with a span length of 6 to 12 feet and an under beam height of up to 24 ft.

Industrial Material Handling Equipment

A customer in an extrusion operation approached with a problem. The components that they regualrly change in the cooling tanks have been updated from being manageble 40 pound units to now being 200 pound assemblies. This change has caused some back injuries among the maintenance crew members, as they were having to reach down into the cooling tanks, and pick up the assembly, lifting it up over the lip and setting it down manually in a narrow aisle. This maintenance is performed weekly on each of their 18 extrusion lines. The biggest challenge for this customer is that the narrow aisles, prevented them from being able to reach the assembly with traditional lifting equipment.

The solution is a modified portable jib crane with a counter weighted beam. The jib crane can be transported down the aisle on a pallet jack since a forklift can not fit in the aisle. The base was modified to be only 36” wide. They will be able to rotate the jib directly over the assembly, hook up their hoist, and lift without risking injury. This solution also pays for itself with increased efficiency due to now one maintenance worker can change the assembly working alone, where as before it took 3 workers. This was the right solution from both a safety and a financial standpoint.

Portable Jib Cranes

Air Technical Industries announces the development of a new series of Portable Jib Cranes that are self-supportive and can be used anytime, any place, indoors or outdoors, without installation. The Portable Jib Crane has a counterweight built in to the base for stability and fork pockets for portability.

Portable Jib Crane

When the job is done, the crane can be easily moved out of the way, since it is not bolted to the concrete floor, as it is in the case with traditional jib cranes. The ordinary jib crane can only be used at one fixed location and is limited in flexibility that the new portable crane offers.

One crane that can be used at many locations adds great versatility and savings by not needing many cranes at different locations, and it also saves space on the shop floor. The Portable Jib Crane is also convertible and can be detached from the base and mounted to the floor.

The crane features a 360° boom rotation manually operated and there is an optional powered boom rotation available. The crane can be equipped with a manual hoist or electrical powered hoist, 110 volt single phase or 240-480 volts, 3 phase. For hazardous areas, air powered pneumatic spark proof hoists are available.

Portable Jib Cranes are built of heavy duty industrial welded steel construction for safe and long lasting use. The rotation is on a heavy duty Timken roller bearing and precision built cam followers for smooth, easy, effortless rotation. Cranes are available in capacities of 500, 1000 or 2000 pounds with a span length of 6 to 12 feet and an under beam height of up to 24 ft.

The cranes feature 2 different counter balance designs, one is counterweight built into the enlarged base for stability and the other is mounted on the rotating beam so that counterweight is always on the opposite side of the payload. The specially designed counterweight base has 4-way fork pockets for easy accessibility from any side.

The Portable Jib Crane is an ideal tool for on the spot lifting and handling of heavy components at different locations. It can be a great complement to a larger overhead crane to save the time for heavier lifts, while using the Portable Jib Crane under the overhead crane to help out.
