Product Inquiry

Jib cranes from Schmalz are very versatile in their use and can be combined with many lifting devices such as chain hoists, rope hoists, rope balancers or vacuum lifting devices. In combination with one of our lifting aids, Schmalz pillar-mounted slewing cranes form complete systems ready for connection. In this way, our cranes support a large number of manual handling tasks. Their high degree of flexibility makes them the ideal helper for a wide variety of applications.

When installing the crane on a column, the pivoting angle is 270°. The crane can be installed freestanding in the room. For a weight of up to 1,000 kg, the Column Slewing Cranes use aluminium crane rails. This guarantees extreme responsiveness. Once a load of more than 1,000 kg is to be lifted, steel crane rails are used.
