Product Inquiry

Jib cranes from Schmalz are very versatile and can be combined with many lifting devices such as chain hoists, rope hoists, rope balancers or vacuum lifting devices. The jib crane is attached to an existing column or wall and has a pivoting angle of 180°. This enables the optimum use of existing hall dimensions. Schmalz offers various solutions for attaching the crane according to the customer's local conditions. Special, newly developed, wall consoles for attachment of the wall-mounted jib crane permit easy installation.

For a weight of up to 1,000 kg, the crane systems use aluminium crane rails. This guarantees extreme responsiveness and supports ergonomic and fatigue-free working. Once a load of more than 1,000 kg is to be lifted, steel crane rails are used. All crane columns are anchor-ready, no additional intermediary plates are necessary.

Design and Function

  • Aluminum crane rail and pivot bearing (with the same jib boom as the column-mounted jib cranes)
  • Mounted using a wall bracket or clasp bracket (for example on a building column in a production room)
  • Use in combination with hoists such as chain hoists, rope hoists, rope balancers or vacuum lifting devices
  • Maximum load of up to 1,000 kg

Product Highlights

  • Ideal utilization of existing hall conditions
  • Excellent smooth running properties thanks to low moving mass
  • High working speed and positioning accuracy
  • Wall-mounted slewing cranes contribute to ergonomic and fatigue-free working
  • High-quality, low-wear components
  • Modern design with anodised profile surface

Modular System

(1) Chain hoist

(2) Energy supply

  • Trailing cable or conductor line

(3) Wall bracket painted steel

  • For adaptation to fastening elements

(4) Aluminum pivot bearing

  • Column mounted jib crane swivel angle: 270°
  • Wall mounted jib crane swivel angle: 180°
  • Can be limited

(5) Aluminum jib

  • Length: 2,000 mm to 8,000 mm

Innovative Basic Components

Aluminum jib minimizes the force required

  • Optimal low friction operation thanks to extruded section with hollow chamber geometry
  • Material: Aluminum natural anodized (EN AW 60 63 T66)
  • Easy swiveling thanks to low mass (weight from 3 kg/m)
  • Easy jib alignment for exact positioning of the load
  • In each case, two fixed and variable end stops for adjusting the travel path are included

High level of ergonomics due to perfect ease of movement

Safe and functional energy supply

Easy to move pivot bearing

  • Effortless swiveling even close to the pivot bearing
  • Easy mounting even when the ceiling height is low thanks to two separate bearing bolts
  • Maintenance free spherical bearing

Low friction transport trolley

  • Sturdy pressure cast aluminum design
  • Secure connection of all types of hoists
  • Optimal running performance thanks to large rollers made from high performance plastic

Trailing cable

  • Standard energy supply via cable trolley in the aluminum section
  • Suitable for power cables (flat cables) and hoses (vacuum and compressed air)

Conductor line

  • Wireless power supply via insulated plastic rails
  • There are no cable storage devices or cable loops to cause interference
  • Travel path between pivot bearing and transport trolley up to 400 mm larger

Technical Information

  • Basis for calculation: DIN EN 13001
  • Hoisting class: HC3
  • Stress group: S1
