What is a Floor Mounted Jib Crane?

Posted In:

A jib crane is a crane with a horizontal arm. This near horizontal beam is used to support the load clear of the pillar support. Jib cranes are mainly used in industrial and commercial applications, can be utilized indoors, or outdoors, and have the ability to lift very heavy loads.

A Floor Based Jib Crane manufactured by Bushman Equipment for an aluminum foundry

The production manager of a major aluminum foundry contacted Bushman Equipment. The potential customer needed to move a molten trough from cast position to maintenance. The concern was the overall weight of the trough, the long overhang of the jib, and the potentially dangerous materials being handled.

Custom Jib Crane Manufacturer and Supplier

Bushman Equipment went to work custom engineering and designing a 360° rotating floor-mounted jib crane for this aluminum foundry. With over 72 years of design and custom manufacturing experience, Bushman was able to design a custom jib crane for this customer with lift capacity of 18,000 lbs. This entire unit was custom designed by Bushman Equipment’s talented engineering team.
