Jib Cranes have a single "boom" or "jib" extension creating a circular area of coverage. This type of crane can be used indoors or out and, are typically mounted to a wall, a column or can be floor supported (freestanding) They are versatile enough to handle a variety of functions but are best suited for localized areas of productivity because they are limited by the swing of their "Boom" or "jib". They are ideally used for loading and unloading of material onto and off of machinery for further processing and are especially useful when providing coverage to an area that the main overhead crane cannot effectively serve or is not available, saving time and energy. They can be used outdoors in such areas as loading docks or on rooftops. When not in use, the jib can be swung back against the wall or column to clear the area for other activity.
