Gorbel Ergonomic Work Station Cranes

Gorbel work station ergonomic cranes are a proven way to improve productivity, increase quality, and provide a safer work environment.  More and more companies are using workstation bridge cranes to effectively solve their material handling problems and improve the performance of their business.

Not only do workstation bridge cranes solve handling problems, they also provide users with several benefits:

Increased Productivity:

Gorbel work station cranes help your workers work more productively than traditional I-beam cranes. A study conducted by the Human Factors Laboratory at Rochester Institute of Technology for Gorbel cranes shows that work station cranes increase productivity up to 28 percent compared with I-beam cranes.  The productivity increase is due to the fact that bridge cranes require less effort to move than I-beam cranes.  In  most applications, particularly high cycle time applications, customers are able to cost justify the ergonomic crane system with the productivity increases alone.

Ease of Movement and Positioning:

Gorbel work station bridge cranes can move a load three times more easily than a traditional I-beam crane. This ease of movement and positioning results from Gorbel's unique enclosed track design, high strength-to-weight ratio, and rigid runways with anti-binding end trucks.

Increased Quality:

Enclosed track cranes can increase the quality of goods while reducing the cost of damaged or rejected parts. Loads are easy to move and position with workstation cranes.  As a result, much of the damage that is done to the product during the manufacturing process is eliminated.

Improved Work Force Utilization:

Gorbel Work Station Cranes can help you reach the typical ergonomic goal in material handling: Allowing a task to be performed by 90 percent of your workers. For instance, the Rochester Institute of Technology study commissioned by Gorbel shows that less than 10 percent of men can safely handle a 4,000-pound load on a manual I- beam crane, but more than 99 percent can do so on a Gorbel work station crane.

Modular Design:

Gorbel's pre-engineered modular kit design permits easy expansion or relocation. The runway length can be increased by adding runway sections, free standing support assemblies and additional bridges as needed.

Better Work Force Utilization:

Since physical strength becomes less of an issue with Gorbel ergonomic work station cranes, you can better utilize your work force. This is especially true considering that today's work force is aging, and it is increasing in the numbers of females in industrial jobs.
