Cranes  

Gorbel® Work Station Cranes are a proven way to improve productivity, increase quality, and provide a safer work environment. Both the aluminum and steel Gorbel Workstation Crane Systems utilize enclosed track that is high in strength and low in weight.


With the ability to span up to 30 ft. and lift capacities between 150 and 4000 lbs., our line of ergonomic crane products guarantees increased productivity. Depending on your needs, Gorbel has the workstation cranes that are sure to handle any project. Have a need for some type of customized material handling solution? Call us, we can design a solution to best fit your application.

Available in:

  • Free Standing
  • Ceiling Mounted
  • Monorail styles.
  • Seismic Zone IV applications also available.

Free Standing floor supported systems do not put stress on the building's overhead structure. Installation is usually more straight forward, and these cranes are also easier to relocate in the future. Free Standing systems require a reinforced concrete floor of at least 6 inches.

  • Capacities from 150 to 4000 lbs
  • Rectangular Coverage with up to 34'' bridge and 124'' runway standard
  • Standard support distances of 20, 25, and 30 feet.
  • Easy to move and position loads
  • Modular design for greater flexibility
  • Doesn't require existing support structure

Hybrid Workstation Cranes are an extension of Gorbel®'s work station crane line. Hybrid Cranes utilize the strength and longevity of patented track with the light weight advantages of Gorbel®'s aluminum enclosed track bridges. Utilizing these two features together allows for greater installation flexibility to meet longer support centers. It also allows for multiple higher capacity bridges to be utilized on a single crane, with no buffers. Here are some key features of our Hybrid Work Station Cranes:

  • Support Centers up to 50' - match your building's support structure or minimize floor obstructions

  • Multiple bridges with no buffer - take full advantage of a single crane installation with multiple bridges and no buffers

  • Manual Push/Pull - save on installation and maintenance by using a higher overall capacity crane with manual bridge and runway movement

  • Complete Solution - incorporate a GS Hoist, a G-Force® lifting device, or both for a complete integrated system

This handle is a two-button infinitely variable control handle for use with our G-Force® and the Easy Arm™. It is a no-charge optional alternative to our standard G-Force® slide handle.

The buttons of the G-Force® Pendant Control require less than one pound of force to depress, making it up to 70% easier than traditional pendants. This reduces the potential for fatigue and repetitive stress injuries of the hand and wrist.

The new Force Sensing Handles for Gorbel''s G-Force product line offer versatility in ergonomic lifting. Compared to standard slide handles, which use displacement of the handle to initiate upward or downward motion, the new design senses force applied without any handle motion. This creates a versatile option for tooling, or elongated handles that perfectly serve applications with a wide range of motion.

Fall Protection  

A Fall Arrest System is an active means of protecting workers from injury due to falls. A complete personal fall arrest system includes an anchor, a body harness and a connector- such as a shock-absorbing fall arrest lanyard or self-retracting lanyard (SRL).

Using a Gorbel Tether Track™ Rigid Rail Fall Arrest System as your anchor provides workers with a high degree of mobility and freedom, while preventing falls to lower levels. Standard systems are designed to accommodate multiple workers, each weighing up to 310 pounds with tools.

Gorbel Tether Track™ Rigid Rail Fall Arrest Systems provide a reliable and cost-effective solution for reducing the risk of injury in elevated work environments. Available in various configurations, including multiple track profiles and support center distances, fall protection can be easily customized to fit every budget and application. All systems are designed by qualified engineers to meet the OSHA 1926 Subpart M construction standard, as well as the ANSI Z359 Fall Protection code.

CEILING MOUNTED SYSTEMS use the structure for support, as the rail is mounted either perpendicular or parallel to the ceiling beams. Should overhead obstacles be present, drop rod hangers with sway bracing can be supplied so that the system avoids these obstructions.

FREE STANDING SYSTEMS may be preferred whenever floor space is readily available to install column supports, when changes in work practices are anticipated, and when a building structure isn''t available. The flexibility of free standing systems allows them to be easily modified and moved should processes or fall protection needs change.

Multiple bridges can be supplied for both ceiling mounted and free standing systems, thus allowing multiple workers to utilize the system simultaneously.

When floor space is at a premium, ceiling mounted monorails can provide unparalleled fall protection while maintaining an open floor plan for material handling, production, or related activities. Ceiling mounted monorails use existing support steel for overall anchorage strength, and are ideal for production facilities and warehouses with tall ceilings since column support is not needed. Even if the facility has standard ceiling heights, the compact, low-profile design of ceiling mounted monorails provides full protection without headroom concerns.

With proven productivity gains that not only reduce unload time, but also reduce or eliminate demurrage charges, standby charges and drop trailer charges, the Destuff-it can also reduce the number of doors needed for the unload operation with more trailer turns per door. The robust construction of each Destuff-it make it an ideal unloader for multi-shift operations.

Typically, companies who start using a Destuff-it machine over their usual step-stool method see a reduction in unload times of 50%. The total man hours required to unload a trailer are reduced by a similar amount. While the case rate will vary due to box size & weight, it is typically in excess of 800 boxes per hour. In addition, the unit can be connected to an auto palletizer for even higher case rates and further labor reductions.

When in unload mode, the Restuff-it is capable of achieving similar results to the Destuff-it. It is capable of reducing unload times as well as demurrage charges, standby charges and drop trailer charges. The Restuff-it can reduce the number of doors needed for the unload operation by enabling more trailer turns per door.

In loading mode, the ergonomic benefits of the Restuff-it are realized by using the operator platform to lift the worker to the proper position relative to the box wall. In addition to this ergonomic benefit, by increasing the accessibility to the top of the container, many users also realize an increase in cube utilization.
