we receive an order number to install or re-position a floor
mounted jib crane we will first agree a date with yourself.
As per the quotation we will need you to have ready on site
an access platform, test weights (if the SWL is 500kgs or over),
and a suitable fork truck, able to lift the height of the underside
of the jib cranes arm, but preferably a little higher
than the top of the jib crane. See the quotation, and
the photographs below.
arrival our installation team will consult with you as to exactly
where you want the jibs column positioning before any drilling
takes place. Once this has been agreed the column is fastened
to the floor; either directly to the floor or onto sunken Donati
ground anchors or via an extra
large base plate, depending on your factory floors depth.
We always need to know which option in advance as per the quotation.
the jibs pillar is secured to the floor the swing jibs arm and
chain hoist are fastened to it. This is followed by the festoon
cable and trolleys. The jib crane is now ready to test.
do we require prior to arrival on site. (The part that goes
will need a clear and free working area. Our engineers will
bring the required lifting slings, a fork truck jib extension
(example below) to gain extra height, some clamps, a calibrated
load cell, anchor bolts and chemical resin.
per the quotation before we arrive on site we need the electricity
supply "to the jib crane" via a fused
isolator, a 10 amp supply is sufficient up to 1t SWL jib crane.
power supply "to the jib crane" means
just that, not 15 meters away or "behind the toilet block
and just past the canteen...."
If you pillar jib crane it is positioned is to be fitted into
the middle of your workshop floor, the electrical cables need
to hang down from above the jib crane so we can wire them into
the jib termination box. This is positioned one meter from the
ground on the jib column.
fork truck needs to lift high enough to reach the jibs arm when
stood up. Example: A jib arm that is 4000mm
from the floor will need fork truck reaches at least 4200mm
is one of the devises we use to stand a jib crane's pillar upright.
It is a 360 degree "lifting yoke swivel", to use this
your fork lift truck must be taller than the jib crane we intend
of a Swing Jib Crane, or Pillar jib Crane.
installed and the chemical resin around the anchor bolts has
hardened the engineers will apply the load test to the pillar
jib crane, record the deflection. Once the balance is paid in
full we will issue the test certificate.
If the installation cannot take place for example if your floor
depth is not sufficient or your fork truck has died, we will
have to charge for the re-visit.
