Air Technical Industries (ATI) has introduced a new smart jib crane. This pedestal mounted crane is 300” tall with a boom span of 288” and capacity of 4,000 lbs. It comes equipped with 360° powered rotation that starts slow then accelerates the rotation through travel and comes to gradual slow to stop.
The wire rope hoist and motorized trolley are equipped with a festooning system and rotation and has a collector ring so that the smart crane can rotate continuously clock-wise or counter clock-wise without stopping. The controls are radio remote-controlled—no umbilical cord necessary—so that the operator has freedom of movement and can stand wherever necessary for safety and comfort or monitoring of the load.
In addition to the soft start, the rotation is equipped with 2 speed control: slow speed for jogging or precise positioning of the load and fast for running. These parameters are controlled by a programmable variable frequency drive (VFD) and may be modified as desired.
The jib-crane capacity is available for 1,000, 2,000, 4,000, 6,000, and 10,000 pounds
