Jib Crane Installing, Testing and Commissioning.

After 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,you may need to have ready on site, this can be discussed before hand if you have any questions.


On 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, onto sunken Donati ground anchors or with an extra large base plate, depending on your factory floors depth. We always need to know which option in advance.

Once 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.

Below: one of the devises we use to stand a jib crane’s pillar upright. It is a 360 degree lifting yoke swivel.

What do we require prior to arrival on site

We will need a clear and free working area.

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. If your pillar jib crane is positioned 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.


Testing of a Swing Jib Crane, or Pillar jib Crane.

Once installed and the chemical resin around the anchor bolts has hardened, the engineers will apply the load test to the pillar jib crane. A record the deflection is then taken.

NOTE: If the installation cannot take place, for example if your floor depth is not sufficient, we will have to charge for an aborted visit.
