Jib cranes

| Robust lifting for dynamic work environments

Konecranes jib cranes are vital to any production process requiring speed, accuracy, and minimal downtime. Designed for a seamless user experience, they are versatile, durable, and serve almost any kind of workstation, providing support for overhead cranes on production lines, and helping to keep terminals, machining cells, and warehouses operating smoothly.

With several different ways to fix the jib to the wall or floor, and a variety of hoists available, they are perfectly suited to most customer facilities. The cranes have a load capacity of up to 2,000 kg and a slewing motion that can reach 300 degrees with a pillar jib, and 270 degrees with a wall mounted jib.
