When it comes to overhead travelling cranes, there are many different options for add-ons, accessories, and optional equipment. At Munck Cranes we pride ourselves on offering top of the line optional equipment and accessories for all of our newly fabricated cranes or existing solutions.
If your material handling needs have changed or if you're looking to modernize your equipment, then the team at Munck Cranes can help.
Below are some of our most common crane accessories that can be included on a new equipment quote, or these enhancements can be added to an existing crane already in service.
This solution can be attached to either your building columns or directly to the building wall. A wall mounted jib crane, often called a Foundationless jib crane, does not consume valuable floor space, nor does it require footings or potentially expensive foundation work.
Benefits of a column mounted jib crane include exceptional boom clearance and they can be collapsed to avoid interference for other overhead cranes and equipment in your facility.
Unlike the wall/column mounted style, free standing jibs require footings and a strong foundation as they are independent structures from the building. This independence allows a free standing jib crane to be installed anywhere in your facility with sufficient space.
The free standing jib crane design allows for a greater capacity range and also for a longer boom span compared to the wall / column mounted jib solution. If you are interested in installing a jib crane on the exterior of your facility, all of our solutions can be ruggedized for outdoor use.
A cantilever jib crane is a hoisting crane with a swing or fixed cantilever (a long projecting beam or girder fixed at only on end, along which a hoisting trolley moves). Cantilever cranes are used primarily in shops of industrial enterprises and in closed warehouses. Load capacity of cantilever cranes ranges from 4 Tons to 10 Tons.
A Cantilever jib crane eliminates the need for a 'stringer support', meaning they will maximize the available headroom and are especially useful when there are existing overhead cranes.
