SAFETECH GORBEL Workstation Cranes – A Class Above.
Workstation cranes create safe work cells by providing flexible lifting over a wide area:
Gorbel Workstation Cranes can be configured as follows:
Bridge Crane (Ceiling Mounted)
Incorporates two parallel runways, suspended from the building ceiling, bridge can travel. A hoist trolley or crab can travel along the bridge, thus providing full coverage over a rectangular work area. Multiple bridges can be attached to a single bridge and the capacities of these bridges can vary according to need.
Bridge Cranes with capacities from 125 to 2,000 kgs, 10 M bridges and long runways – all with Gorbels renowned ease of movement and quality build.
Freestanding Bridge Crane (Floor Mounted)
As above, except that the runways are supported on a freestanding structure.
Increased productivity - Gorbel® Work Station Cranes help workers work more productively than traditional I-beam cranes. A study conducted by Rochester Institute of Technology shows that work station cranes increase productivity up to 28 percent compared with I-beam cranes. In many applications customers cost justify the crane system with productivity increases alone.
Ease of movement and positioning - Gorbel® Work Station Bridge Cranes can move a load three times more easily than a traditional I-beam crane. This ease of movement and positioning results from Gorbel®'s unique enclosed track design, high strength-to- weight ratio, and rigid runways with anti-binding end trucks.
Increased Quality - Enclosed track cranes can increase the quality of goods while reducing the cost of damaged or rejected parts. Loads are so easy to move and position with workstation cranes, much of the damage that is done to the product during the manufacturing process is eliminated.
Improved work force utilisation - Gorbel® Workstation Cranes allow tasks to be performed by 90 percent of workers. The Rochester Institute of Technology study commissioned by Gorbel shows that less than 10 percent of men can safely handle a 2,000-kg. load on a manual I- beam crane, but more than 99 percent can do so on a Gorbel® Work Station Crane. With physical strength less of an issue you can better utilise your labour - particularly with today's aging and increasingly female work force.
Modular Design - Gorbel®'s pre-engineered modular kit design permits easy expansion or relocation. The runway length can be increased by adding runway sections, free standing support assemblies and additional bridges as needed.
