A snapshot of a lift system from Gorbel.
Gorbel’s G-Force device is part of an exciting new family of overhead lifting devices known as Intelligent Assist Devices (IADs). These systems use patented technology and an industrial processor controlled servo drive system to deliver unmatched lifting precision and speed.
The G-Force units maximize productivity and minimize the risk of injury by combining Gorbel’s advanced technology with human guidance. The G-Force® is ideal for applications that require both high speeds and slow and precise movements. It travels up to four times faster than traditional high-end lifting devices, with G-Force® speeds reaching 200 fpm (61 mpm), making them the fastest, most precise lifting devices on the market.
The G-Force unit features anti-recoil technology that prevents the unit from moving or recoiling when there is a sudden change in load. The anti-recoil technology is an intuitive feature that reduces the risk of potentially serious injury. G-Force technology also employs power loss protection, a failsafe load braking system that locks the unit in place in the event of a power loss. G-Force uses human intelligence and adaptability for guidance, but leaves the heavy lifting to the device.
Gorbel’s Intelligent Lifting Devices provide the best of both worlds:the responsiveness and flexibility of a human operator with the power of a machine.
