Reva manufactures a range of jib cranes such as self supported, Wall / Pillar Mounted and Traveling wall cranes. These cranes relieve the overhead cranes for carrying out more useful work on the shop floor. Being designed on FEA these are extremely reliable and safe. These have standard 'REVA' Electric Wire Rope Hoist.
The cranes operate at lower height than the overhead crane with lift in the range of 3 to 5 meters. The lifting capacity could be in the range of .5 Tonnes to 10 Tonnes (Higher lifts or capacities can also be supplied).
The jib cranes are very versatile in handling materials to and from machining bays, small parts assembly shops, hammer/press shops, repair bays etc. Compared to overhead cranes which are meant for handling heavier and bulky materials, the jib cranes are very useful for faster operation.
Jib cranes could be hand operated also but electrically operated cranes with electric wire rope hoists, are the order of the day for increasing the production.
Jib cranes require much less investment as compared to overhead cranes .Leave aside the capital cost, the running and maintenance cost are much less as the jib crane parameters could be optimised as per job requirements.
REVA is also manufacturing other version of jib cranes viz. Pillar cranes where materials are handled within a circle. The rotation on the pillar is usually upto 270 degrees but 360 degrees rotation could be provided.
