A jib crane is a type of crane where a horizontal member (jib or boom), supporting a moveable hoist, is fixed to a wall or to a floor-mounted pillar. Jib cranes are used in industrial premises and on military vehicles. The jib may swing through an arc, to give additional lateral movement, or be fixed. Jib cranes are useful especially for loading or unloading of workpieces on machine tools industry. These are also useful for loading or unloading of trucks. They can also become an inseparable part of a standalone workstation and machine assembly area.
IEW designs and manufactures such Jib Cranes to meet specific client requirements.
