Solutions for Today's Workplace

Gorbel Industrial Jib Cranes

Gorbel Industrial Jib Cranes are freestanding, mast type and column mount in Cantilever or Bracket styles. They are available in manual or motorized rotation and have capacities from ¼ to 5 tons as standard and spans to 25’. Custom spans and capacities are also available.

If your loads are too heavy for our ergonomic crane options these jibs are perfect under overhead cranes, and in open areas, or they can serve several work cells. These are also available for outdoor applications.

Free Standing Jib Cranes are Gorbel’s most versatile crane. They are perfect to place underneath large bridge cranes.  They are ideal in open areas where they can serve several workstations such as machining and assembly operations, or they can be overlapped with other jibs to provide staged operation.  They can be either epoxy coated or galvanized for outdoor applications such as loading docks.
Gorbel’s Advantage: Ease of Operation

  • Allows operators to position loads precisely, effortlessly and efficiently
  • Precision tapered roller bearings in the top pivot and trunnion assemblies provide smooth operation and long life
  • Full supporting triangular base plate gussets are used (in lieu of struts) to minimize crane deflection, thus making it easier to accurately position loads
  • Ease of installation
  • Independent head assembly installed separately from the boom for easier installation
  • The recessed bearing assembly allows greatly reduced clearances needed for installation
  • Bolted head / boom connection which permits separate installation and provides maximum lift for the hoist, since it can be installed very close to the underside of the lower ceiling obstruction for greater headroom
  • Movable bolted trolley stops
  • In-head totally enclosed, bottom entry collector assembly allows the option of easily adding power to the hoist for 360° rotation at the time of or after purchase
  • Safety Head retaining pin provides resistance to accidental upward dislodgement of the head
  • Full Rated Capacity
  • Pre-engineered for use with powered hoists. A factor of 15% of the jib crane capacity is allowed for the hoist and trolley weight with an additional 25% of the capacity allowed for impact, thus giving full rated capacity use.
