Positech’s Articulated Jib Boom (AJB), an articulating jib* arm that can be used as an alternative to workstation bridge system or strait arm jib. The low headroom design along with two 360-degree rotation axes, allow this handling aid to reach in and maneuver over or around work cell obstructions. The articulating jib crane is available in five model configurations, provides up to 5,000 pounds of payload capacity, and spans up to 20 feet. The Articulated Jib crane can be combined with the Positech Vertical Lift Cylinder to create an ergonomic lift assist that offers rigid vertical movement and off-center moment loading capabilities.
