Air Technical Industries (ATI; Mentor, OH) announces the development of a new Portable Jib Crane with Articulating Forearm, 360° rotation and telescopic mast. The main benefit is portability, which enables the jib crane to be used anywhere, anytime without permanent installation. The unit also provides on-the-spot handling, and it can operate in harmony with big and bulky overhead cranes. Additional features include:
- The 6 ft long articulating forearm 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.
- 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.
- Suitability 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, including a stationary, permanent floor mounted arm; a portable, self-supporting counterweight jib crane with 4-way fork pockets and a combination unit with unique telescopic mast.
