1) Jib crane

A stationary or fixed crane that utilizes a cantilevered bridge (girder) supported from a stationary vertical support.  The jib crane generally utilizes a lifting device (hoist) that is mounted on the horizontal boom (jib).

2) Wall traveling jib crane

A traveling jib crane consisting of a fixed or moveable hoisting mechanism and operating on a runway attached to the side walls or columns of a building.

3) Wall mounted jib crane

May also be referred to as a bracket mounted jib crane.  The wall mounted jib crane is to the wall of a building by utilizing brackets.  These brackets allow the jib to pivot from wall to wall in a given radius. Jib cranes may also be bracket mounted to columns. These jib cranes usually incorporate tie rods to add stability to the farthest point of the bridge beam.

4) Column mounted jib crane

Also referred to as a "pillar-supported" jib crane.  The jib is attached to a self-supporting floor mounted or floor to ceiling mounted mast.  A column mounted jib crane may also be supported vertically by a structural column of the building structure itself.

5) Drop cantilevered jib crane

Similar to a full cantilevered jib crane with the exception of a column or beam connection that allows the load beam or boom to be mounted at any point on the column or mast.

6) Full cantilevered jib crane

A form of wall mounted or column mounted jib crane that utilizes a vertical pivoted member and a bridge or mast that extends at right angles to the pivoting member.  This design adds the advantage of having the jib boom at the highest hook lift , thus taking advantage of an entire building height.

7) Carrier

Also known as a trolley.  A unit that travels on the bottom flange of a monorail or patented track beam, jib crane or bridge girder to transport a load. Also refers to a trucking line used to transport materials to and from a distribution center.

8) Electrification

The track mounted conductor system by which the moving equipment receives its electrical power. All of the electrical components that go into providing power to an electric overhead crane or jib crane.  These components may include power bar, collectors, collector rings, pendent stations, and tagline/festooning.

9) Crane Manufacturers

As applies to Members of the Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA), this term usually applies to manufacturers of overhead traveling cranes, jib cranes, stacker cranes, and gantry cranes to the exclusion of mobile cranes, tower cranes or devices otherwise referred to as construction cranes.
