The column (floor) mounted jib crane is Strataligns most versatile crane. They are perfect to place underneath large bridge cranes, in open areas where they can serve several work stations, in outdoor applications such as loading docks, or in machining and assembly operations where they can be overlapped with other jibs to provide various stages of operation. These units are available is 270 and 360 degrees rotation.
• Allows operators to position loads precisely, effortlessly, and efficiently.
• Precision self-aligning roller bearings in top pivot and trunnion assemblies provide smooth operation and long life.
• Full supporting triangular base plate gussets are used to minimize crane deflection, thus making it easier to accurately position loads.
• Independent head assembly, installed separately from the boom for easier installation.
• A simple head/boom shaft connection permits separate installation and provides maximum lift for the hoist, since it can be installed very close to the underside of the lower ceiling obstruction for greater headroom.
• Head retaining pin provides resistance to accidental upward dis-lodgement of the head.

Hamilton Jet Assembly Plant – Jib Crane
The ChallengeThis busy manufacturing and assembly plant in Christchurch required a crane system to be designed, manufactured and installed to assist in the processing section of the business.
The ChallengeThe design of the cranes for this application was a relatively straightforward operation for the Design Team. In order to provide the customer with the span and lifting capacity they needed we designed and manufactured two overbraced jib cranes to fit into their facilities. The challenge in this application was that there were no plans available of the original building.
“ Solution to a long-standing challenge
As a solution to a long standing challenge, Cabtec Ltd purchased a Fezer vacuum lifter from Stratalign Limited, for processing product through a processing line. Prior to the purchase, the process had required manual handling, which in today’s environment, is not a sustainable option.
More than one option for this solution was investigated by Cabtec with the decision being a vacuum lifter as the winning choice. Cabtec’s spokesman recalls, “Cabtec selected Stratalign as the winning supplier, based on their ability to provide the technical and professional advice, along with what Cabec considered a ‘top quality product for a competitive price’.
The ‘ease of operation’ is facilitated by the very smooth running bearings and movement points, integral to this structurally sound piece of kit.” He continues, “From the day the order was placed, the Stratalign team kept us updated with progress, to the day the machine was installed.
The installation process was organized in such a way, by Stratalign, that it caused absolute minimal disruption to a very busy working environment during normal working hours.”
