Power and Motion, located in Atlanta Georgia was selected to design, sell, and install a custom conveyor system for a roll handling application. The conveyor incorporated a custom in-feed gravity cradle that held a felt roll weighing 80 pounds, with an unrolled length of 100'.
The goal of the conveyor system was to pay out, or unroll the felt so the product would be completely flat and set up for the next step in the manufacturing process. In order to achieve a flat roll, a custom nip roller was designed that applied pressure on the product, conveying the roll towards the main takeaway conveyor line. The conveyor utilized a variable frequency drive so the speed on the system could be dialed in to match the speed of the production line. The entire conveyor system was encased by a protective Wirecrafters machine guard.
Power and Motion also installed a Gorbel ergonomic work station crane with a custom designed air operated roll handling / lifting device to pick up and handle the rolls.
Reasons for Using the Gorbel Crane Product on This Project.
We used a Gorbel Ergonomic crane system to assist the production line employees with repetitive and heavy lifting required during the manufacturing process. Our Gorbel ergonomic crane systems are a proven way to improve productivity, increase product quality, and provide a safer work environment. Both the aluminum and steel Gorbel Workstation Crane Systems utilize an enclosed track that is high in strength and low in weight.
Gorbel has over 30 years experience providing overhead handling solutions to customers in a wide range of industries.
