Motorized Rotation Jib Cranes Motorized Jibs are available in the Free Standing, Wall Bracket, Wall Cantilever, and Mast Type Series. Retrofit Motorized kits for Free Standing Jibs are also available. Gorbel Motorized Jibs are not mere adaptations. They are totally conceived as motorized products, with all the outstanding features of our standard jib cranes, plus more.
Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) are standard on all Motorized Jib Cranes. The drive can be configured for single or multiple speeds.
Precision drive assembly with field adjustable torque limiter for added drive protection. Worm gear reducer with oil bath lubrication for reliable operation and low maintenance. Worm gear reducer includes overload safety clutch. Heavy-duty, totally enclosed, fan cooled, 3 phase Class B, 40°C ambient continuous, “C” faced motor, 30 minute rated, is standard. Precision Direct drive for all series jib cranes allows for accurate and consistent positioning of loads. This modular drive design makes maintenance easy and reduces long term costs. Wall Cantilever and Mast Type masts are boxed for extra rigidity to withstand the forces of a Motorized Crane and provide more precise load control.
Motorized Control Package
Features Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) is standard. The Variable Frequency Drive can be used in one, two or three speed applications. VFD provides the ultimate in load control. The VFD provides the ultimate in load control and positioning from the slowest possible creep speed up to the maximum speed.
Easily adjustable speed control
Through a simple keypad on the VFD, the acceleration rate, deceleration rate and rotation speed can be adjusted to fit your application. This allows you to customize the performance of the jib to your exact requirements.
Designed for indoor and outdoor use
When being used outdoors, the cranes are designed to operate in winds of 15 mph or less, based on a maximum load surface of 64 square feet. Consult the factory for applications exceeding these standards Standard NEMA Rated Control Enclosure Gorbel’s standard control enclosure meets the requirements for NEMA 3R, 12 and 4 environments. Optional enclosures are available for other environments.
Low Maintenance Costs
The VFD eliminates the need for magnetic reversing contactors, reduces the number of wearable components in the panel, and reduces long-term maintenance cost.
