Flexibility, Precision, and Versatility: The Art of Articulating Jib Cranes
An articulating jib crane, also known as a knuckle boom crane, is a type of crane that has a series of jointed sections that enable the crane to articulate, or bend, in several places. Here are some benefits of using an articulating jib crane:
Increased versatility: An articulating jib crane can be used in a variety of applications where a standard crane may not be able to reach, such as in tight spaces or over obstacles.
Improved precision: The ability to articulate the crane allows for greater control and precision when positioning loads, which can be especially important when working in crowded or confined spaces.
Reduced risk of damage: The knuckle boom design of the crane means that it can lift and move loads without the need to swing the load, which reduces the risk of damage to surrounding objects or structures.
Lower cost: Articulating jib cranes tend to be less expensive than traditional cranes, making them a more cost-effective solution for many lifting applications.
Improved safety: The increased control and precision offered by an articulating jib crane can help reduce the risk of accidents and injuries on the worksite. Additionally, some articulating jib cranes can be operated remotely, which can further improve safety by allowing the operator to control the crane from a safe distance.
