Swing Jib Cranes

Optimised positioning of the supporting gantry or crane can be a crucial factor in the successful implementation of a new, suspended load handling system. Transportation of the load must be ergonomically managed to prevent unnecessary strains or physical stress on the operator. Palamatic designs the lifting aid to the task and the crane system to the process environment, with the occupational health of the operator always at the forefront of considerations.

Ergonomically, the lifting aid is only as good as the gantry from which it is suspended. Palamatic supply a complete range of overhead support systems individually rated for use with vacuum lifting units. Palamatic gantries are available in a hygienic stainless steel manufacture. This design minimises internal cavities and flat surfaces to prevent product build-up and facilitate clean down.

Swing Jib Gantry systems are ideal for coverage of a production area where one process is taking place. The lifting system runs up and down the jib and the swing arm moves side to side giving 270 degree coverage.

The jib is most commonly supported from a centre post support pillar, but can also be supported from existing steelwork, wall mounted or ceiling mounted.

Where headroom is an issue, an inverted jib can be offered which can also offer 300 degree coverage.
