The Freestanding Easy Arm requires no special foundation for installation and puts no stress on your building's overhead structure. This all-in-one design is more cost effective for moving loads within one work cell than adding a work station bridge crane.
Comes already assembled in the box
Simple 4-bolt pattern makes it easy to install on any 6" reinforced concrete floor
Easy to move: The lifting mechanisms are located over the primary pivot point, making the arm lightweight
Free Standing PIVOT PRO (PPRO-FS) has a lighter less bulky design, making it easier to move. It provides easy rotation and consistent responsiveness when positioning loads throughout the cranes coverage area. The force required to start and stop the boom rotation is so much less than with other types of cranes that is significantly reduces injury and improves safety.
It can also be utilized for light air or electric hoist applications.
The Free Standing Tool Solutions Jib is an enclosed track work station jib designed to be smaller, lighter and more cost effective for applications with suspended tools. The crane's small 4 inch square tube mast allows it to be placed in small work spaces.
Tether Track Anchor Systems are a reliable, cost effective way to reduce the risk of injury in elevated work environments. Standard systems are designed to support multiple workers, each weighing up to 310 lbs with tools. Heavier systems can also be custom engineered.
Gorbel's Ergonomic Overhead Cranes give you the handling equipment that you need to get the job done. Our line of Bridge Crane products guarantees increased productivity with their ability to span up to 30 ft. and lift capacities from 150 - 4000 lbs. Available in Free Standing, Ceiling Mounted, and Monorail styles. Seismic Zone IV applications also available.
Free Standing Work Station Bridge Cranes can handle the toughest overhead lifting tasks. These cranes, which can be installed on any normal 6-inch reinforced concrete floor, feature a pre-engineered, modular design that can easily expand as your work centers expand.
When a work area must be free from any support structures that may interfere with operations, ceiling mounted bridge cranes are an excellent solution to keeping floors clear. Handling capacities up to 4000 lbs. with overall bridge lengths up to 34 ft., these systems are pre-engineered and modularly designed for easy installation, expansion, and relocation. Customers can install multiple bridges along one set of runways and greatly increase their productivity.
• Provide a solution for true linear movement.
• Pre-engineered modular designs enable Gorbel® Work Station Crane Systems to be adapted for more sophisticated applications. This is done by the addition of extra tracks, curves, switches, and interlocks (transfers).
Seismic Zone IV Cranes have been designed for the most rigorous applications in areas that must adhere to Seismic Zone IV building code requirements. These cranes are completely free standing and require no sway bracing. The pre-engineered modular kit design of Gorbel's Seismic Zone crane systems provide easy expansion or relocation.
Gorbel® mass produces our modular components instead of manufacturing them on a per order basis. This saves you engineering time, so you can get your automated crane components faster, making your integration quick and easy. Ideal for handling large, heavy loads that require slower speeds.
Ideal for low headroom applications, our nested trolleys enable you to raise the height of the hoist and increase the available lift. A nested trolley is constructed of a dual girder bridge with a box shaped assembly (a "nest") that travels between the bridge girders. With this custom designed "nest", the hoist is mounted up inside the bridge structure, which allows you to get back the lift typically taken up by the body of the hoist.
Allow loads to be transferred from a bridge crane to monorail spurs and vice-a-versa. The interlock/transfer cranes are fast and easy to use. The bridge only engages the interlock when the operator actuates it so they do not impede the workers when not in use. The interlock is designed so the trolley stops will lock and not allow the passage of the hoist trolley until the bridge and monorail are in alignment and mechanically linked. The bridge and monorail spur cannot be separated until the trolley stops are fully closed and in the locked position. They can be easily adapted to an existing Gorbel® Work Station Bridge Crane.
Our Offset Load Platform is designed to support almost any rigid or base plate mounted lifting devices and manipulators. One platform can be used in multiple work cells or be moved anywhere within the crane coverage area. Our new design reduces skewing and binding of the carriers. The Result? Smooth, consistent movement of your manipulators and tooling on our rails.
Telescoping bridge crane allows for extension outside the normal reach of a Gorbel® Work Station Bridge Crane. The telescoping bridge is designed for effortless movement and easy installation. The bridge features an adjustable leveling device and anti-kickup wheels to prevent binding of the bridge when telescoped. Applications for a telescoping bridge include reaching into adjacent work cells to transfer material, loading parts into a machine opening, and reaching out beyond a building column or under mezzanines.
Tractor drives provide motorized movement on new or existing enclosed track Gorbel® Work Station Bridge Cranes and Monorails. The drives are designed for indoor use and are available for steel track or aluminum track. Applications for tractor drives include work areas where the operator cannot stand next to the load to move it by hand or during operations with high cycle times that require frequent lifting of heavy, awkward-shaped loads.
Gorbel® has a new line of handle products that we call our Soft Touch Handles. The two main products share the Soft Touch name, but they are very different products.
Soft Touch Pneumatic Control Handle - The Soft Touch Pneumatic Control Handle is used to control any air-powered device, like an air balancer. It has a standard mounting surface so it can replace most existing manufacturers' handles on the market today.
G-Force® Soft Touch Pendant Handle - The G-Force® Soft Touch Pendant Handle is a no-charge, optional alternative to the standard slide handle on our G-Force® BX unit and our Easy Arm Intelligent Lifting Arm. It can only be used with our G-Force® and Easy Arm products.
The G-Jib is a servo-powered lifting device that fuses our G-Force® technology with our enclosed track work station jib crane. We’ve mounted the G-Force® actuator near the mast of the jib, so you’re not moving that dead weight like you do with traditional jib and hoist combinations. Available in Free Standing and Wall Mounted models.
Gantry Cranes provide an economical way to lift materials anywhere in a facility. The heavy duty end frame design with square tubing uprights, knee braces and channel base provides stable lifting and movement. Gantry Cranes come in Fixed Height Steel and Adjustable Steel.
