Jib & Davit Cranes

Stratalign jib cranes are designed to service circular areas and can support tool balancers, air balancers, vacuum lifters and hoists. Column (floor) mounted units have a 270-360 degree rotation depending on the carrying capacity whereas wall mounted units have a 200 degrees rotation.

Column mounted jib cranes are suitable in cases where there are no mounting support for wall mounted jib cranes. The height of the column is specified according to the lifting height required. High quality bearing ensures lightness of use and ergonomics. Ideal units to install beside assembly or manufacturing areas to ensure a safe working environment.

Wall mounted jib cranes are a perfect solution for servicing a work area which is near a wall or other vertical element. A wall mounted jib crane can even be mounted under a bridge crane at any required height. Wall mounted jib cranes have a rotation capability of 200 degrees.

Davit cranes provide lifting solutions to maintenance areas including water and wastewater treatment plants which have an endless variety of lifting, pulling and positioning needs. From lifting submersible pumps and mixers, to raising filter screens and positioning hopper cars. We can offer versatility with portable and permanent davit cranes, with corrosion-resistant finishes in powder coat paint, galvanised or stainless steel construction.

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.

Wall mounted jib crane is a perfect solution for a work station which is near a wall or other vertical element. Wall mounted jib crane can be mounted under a bridge crane on any required. On some applications, existing building columns or overhead beams can be used to mount our jibs on, which means new foundations are not required.

Case Study

Hamilton Jet Assembly Plant – Jib Crane

The RequirementThis 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.”
