G-Force Intelligent Lifting Devices

Gorbel’s intelligent lifting: speed and responsiveness of the human hand with the strength of a machine


G-FORCE – The best Lifting Device in the World. The G-Force uses patented technology and an industrial processor controlled drive system to deliver unmatched lifting precision and speed.

More precise than hoists, more responsive than air balancers, our bridge crane mounted G-Force units improve safety, productivity and quality, resulting in a direct increase to your bottom line. The G-Force follows the movement and speed of the operator’s hand, delivering speed and accuracy in your work process.

Available in models from 75 kg to 600 kg. When precision, lifting power and speed are necessities, turn to the Gorbel Patented G-Force.

  • There are two models of Gorbel Intelligent Lifting Devices to choose from: the Q and the iQ. The Q model is our feature packed base model
  • The iQ model offers a wealth of additional intelligence features
  • Multiple handle configurations


  • Precise, accurate lifting without the effort
  • Allows lifting of heavy items with speed and minimal effort
  • Designed to be supported from Gorbels Range of Bridge Cranes allowing lifting over a larger area
  • Pinpoint precision – speeds from 0.3 mpm up to 83 mpm
  • Blazing speed – travels up to 4 times faster than traditional high end lifting devices
  • Infinite speed control – ideal for applications that require high speed at some points in the cycle and slow, precise movements at other points
  • No switches, no push buttons, no valves, no throttles
  • Two models: Q and the iQ. The iQ is the feature packed base model
  • iQ delivers added input/output features, and further intelligence features


  • Enclosed track / easy movement and long life
  • Rigid runways / superior load positioning – no movement or “crabwalking” of the bridge
  • Ease of Installation / install on any standard 6" concrete floor
  • Smooth rolling surface / Easier movement of bridge and trolleys
  • Multiple track profiles and spanning capabilities/Adaptable, flexible, and cost competitive


  • Patented G360™ collector and swivel assembly prevents damage to coil and/or optional air coil

  • Handle configurations are easily changeable in the field
  • Intuitive servo-controlled lift
  • Standard float mode capability
  • Standard coil cords with in-field add-on air hose
  • LCD on hand controller communicates more information like system status and diagnostics
  • Seamless operator present function by means of a photo sensor
  • Standard Input/Output functionality makes the product suitable for more applications out of the box
  • Ease of installation for reduced installation time & costs
  • Programmable inputs and outputs

Lifting Safety

G-Force: the Safe Alternative

Operators want to use the G-Force because it’s easy to learn, easy to use and dramatically reduces the risk of injury.
Enhanced user safety provides substantial reward for both the operator and the employer.
Safety features include:
  • Anti-recoil. Does not move when there is a sudden change of load
  • Capacity overload protection
  • Power loss protection
  • E-Stop button
  • Operator Indicator lights
