Jib Crane Motions | Jib Crane Electrical Wrench

Jib crane has the following motions:

    1. Hoisting motion
    2. Derricking or luffing motion
    3. Slewing motion
    4. Long travel motion

Hoisting motion:

It is used to lift or lower the load. This is usually achieved by steel wire ropes being affixed to a crane hook or a grab hanging from the outer end of the jib. The rope is applied through some receiving arrangement and controlled and operated by a winch system. 

The long horizontal jib is the part of the crane that carries the load. The counter-jib carries a counterweight, usually of concrete blocks, while the jib suspends the load to and from the center of the crane.

A level-luffing crane is a crane mechanism where the hook remains at the same level whilst luffing; moving the jib up and down, so as to move the hook inwards and outwards relative to the base.

Cranes combine simple machines to lift extremely heavy objects. In balance-style cranes, the crane beam is balanced at a point, called the fulcrum. This allows it to lift heavy objects with a relatively small force. In this way, the crane beam acts as a simple lever.

Derricking or Luffing motion:

It is imparted to the inclined member or the jib to move in a vertical plane so that the angle of the jib may be changed in order to bring the load line nearer to or further off from the centre of the crane.

Slewing motion:

It is imparted to the whole superstructure of the crane including the jib, so that it can turn about a central pivot shaft w.r.t. the non-revolving parts. This motion enables the crane to shift the load line to revolve round the crane.

Long Travel Motion:

It may be required when the whole crane structure has to be shifted to a distant place along a rail track or along a road.
