Motorized Jib Crane Rotation Kits Help Prevent Common Injuries; Are Now Available in Stainless Steel

The David Round Co., Inc.
10200 Wellman Road
Streetsboro, OH, 44241

Press release date: April 12, 2011

STREETSBORO, OH - The David Round Company has announced that its Roto-Mate(TM) Jib Crane Motorization products are now available in stainless steel for sanitary and clean room use. Roto-Mate kits provide powered rotation to either new or existing jib cranes, which can significantly reduce the injury potential posed by manually-rotated cranes. Back injuries and strains frequently result from workers attempting to stop the motion of a boom on a swinging jib crane. The Roto-Mate package safely and accurately positions up to 5 ton loads with push-button control.

Additional ergonomic and safety benefits of the unit include the avoidance of "jib drift," which is the unintended movement of a boom due to vibration or floors that are not perfectly flat. The Roto-Mate unit has a friction drive which locks the jib in place, eliminating drift and the collision potential it creates. Additionally, jib motorization can eliminate hoist side-loading, avoid machinery damage and help keep operators farther away from crane loads while they are in motion.

Roto-Mate motorization is available for nearly all makes of free-standing jibs as a retrofit upgrade package to improve ergonomics, or it is available on new David Round jib cranes.

Established in 1869, The David Round Company remains one of the oldest hoist manufacturers in the world. David Round offers standard handling products such as chain hoists, jib cranes, winches and tractor drives as well as innovative solutions including engineered wire rope hoists, all-stainless steel products and jib crane motorization kits.
