Jib cranes are a subset of cranes that have a jib or boom attached to support a moveable hoist. Jib cranes are some of the most versatile types of cranes, supporting a variety of capabilities and design options. Typically, industrial jib cranes are used in applications where a lifting solution is needed for operation in a small area or within a large industrial facility that has limited space available. Compared to other types of cranes, jib cranes are simple to operate, offer more ergonomic lifting capabilities, and require less maintenance because they have fewer operational components.
