Gorbel Free Standing Work Station Bridge Cranes are installed so that the runways are rigid. They do not move laterally or longitudinally. In addition, Gorbel’s floating end trucks with horizontal wheels prevent binding. The combination of these design features results in unmatched ease of positioning and ease of movement. The bridge travels smoothly down the runways, and movement is unvarying along the way, no matter where a load is positioned on the bridge. This allows superior load positioning. Another advantage of rigid runways is that runways double as stringers between support columns. This eliminates the need for expensive intermediate support stringers, and it lowers overall installation cost.
The Power and Motion sales team has designed, sold and installed Gorbel cranes for over 18 years. We can provide layout and design assistance, AutoCAD drawings of the ergonomic crane, and a mechanical installation of the Gorbel crane system.
