In Booth S-2181, Gorbel, Inc. (Rochester, NY) a leading manufacturer of material handling and fall protection solutions, will preview its new Easy Arm® 660, a new product in its successful family of Intelligent Lifting Devices. This new Easy Arm, with load capacity up to 660 lb, addresses a variety of application needs ranging from placement of automobile engines to loading of large plates in CNC machines. This free-standing, plug-and-play lifting solution incorporates the popular G-Force® Intelligent Lifting technology with the body of an ergonomic articulating jib crane. The unit offers the responsiveness and flexibility of a human operator with unparalleled precision. Boasting spans up to 14 ft, the Easy Arm 660 covers a wide area and handles unique “pick and place” operations. In addition to pinpoint precision, the unit can reach lifting speeds up to 45 fpm for high production environments.
The integral, electrical servo-powered G-Force is fully-programmable to match the device with the work being performed, and can be outfitted with tooling capabilities designed specifically for the size and structure of the load. Capacity overload, power loss protection, and a built-in float mode for exact positioning allow the system to stand-out from other lifting devices. Allowing workers full control when lifting and positioning items weighing up to 660 lb, the Easy Arm 660 provides a complete solution in a single, compact package.
Gorbel has more than 30 years of experience providing shops with overhead handling solutions that handle loads from 50 lb up to 40 tons, including work station bridge cranes, patented track cranes, I-beam jib cranes, gantries, work station jib cranes, and Ergonomic Lifting products with Intelligent Lifting technologies. In addition to cranes, the company delivers innovative fall arrest systems, jibs and intelligent lifting devices.
