What do they do?

Gorbel Workstation Cranes provide a load handling and positioning function from above the work cell. They incorporate an articulating structure above the workstation from which is suspended a hoist or other lifting device. This results in the ability to move the load horizontally and vertically throughout the workstation.

They have a multitude of uses including moving components in and out of processing machinery, moving components, tooling or fixtures on production lines, positioning welding equipment or wire feeders and turning or positioning weldments during fabrication.

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.

Freestanding Bridge Crane (Floor Mounted)
As above, except that the runways are supported on a freestanding structure.

For linear movement. Can be integrated into a total system with extra track, curves, interlocks and switches
