Gorbel Bridge Cranes

Gorbel Bridge cranes increase productivity and create a safe working environment by allowing loads to be lifted and positioned with ease. Gorbel workstation cranes allow anyone regardless of age, or strength to safely perform repetitive lifting tasks up to 4,000 pounds. Gorbel workstation cranes have a productivity index of 100:1, meaning that loads of 1,000 pounds can be moved with as little as 10 pounds of force. Using a workstation crane will increase the overall productivity of your workforce by allowing most repetitive lifting jobs to be performed by up to 90% of workers. Workstation cranes typically refer to jib, free standing, and ceiling mounted enclosed track systems, but Gorbel also manufactures some other closely related products including portable gantry cranes and I-beam jib cranes.

Overhead Workstation Bridge Cranes

Enclosed track workstation bridge cranes are the perfect solution for covering a rectangular work area. They are designed for easy movement and lead the industry in their ability to spot handle on the X and Y axis. Gorbel workstation bridge cranes can handle applications ranging from 150 pounds to 4,000 pounds with bridge lengths up to 34 feet and runway lengths up to 124 feet. (longer bridge lengths and runway lengths available upon request).

Multiple Gorbel Workstation Bridge Cranes

Gorbel workstation bridge cranes are available in two styles: Free Standing and Ceiling Mounted. Systems can also be designed as a combination of the two.

Ceiling mounted systems are available in steel, aluminum and stainless-steel constructions and allow operators to freely move loads without interfering with floor traffic. They do, however, require the building to have an adequate overhead ceiling structure so the system can be safely mounted.

Free standing workstation systems, on the other hand, are independent of the building and do not put any stress on your ceiling structure. This means that free standing workstation cranes can be located wherever you need them and can also be easily relocated. Like the ceiling mounted systems, free standing systems are available in steel, aluminum, and stainless-steel constructions.

Gorbel workstation bridge cranes are the perfect solution for anyone focused on safety and productivity. According to an independent study conducted by the Rochester Institute of Technology – Ergonomics Department, operators using Gorbel workstation bridge cranes were able to increase productivity by up to 28% when compared to a traditional I-beam jib crane.
