Intelligent Lifting Devices

Intelligent lifting devices enable operators to lift and maneuver naturally, as if the devices were an extension of their arms.  These products fill the void between traditional lifting devices and completely automated robotic solutions.  These devices use the operators intelligence and adaptability for guidance, but the work is done by the device.

Gorbel® G-Force

Gorbel’s G-Force® uses exclusive patented technology and an industrial processor controlled servo drive system to deliver unmatched lifting precision and speed.  The fusion of advanced technology and basic human guidance maximizes productivity while minimizing the risk of injury to the operator.

G-Force has infinite speed control, moving as fast or slow as the operator chooses.  Speeds can range from a precise 1fpm to a blazing 200fpm.  They are ideal for applications that require high speed for quick repetitive motions and also slow speed for precise movements.  Available in capacities from 165 lbs. to 1,320 lbs, G-Force units are designed to operate inside enclosed track crane or monorail systems.  Features include Float Mode, anti-recoil technology, capacity overload, power loss protection, and operator present function.

Gorbel® Easy Arm

Gorbel’s Easy Arm® is a combination of the G-Force intelligent lifting device (above) and an articulating jib crane.  It is an ideal solution if you are looking for a turnkey, plug and play lift solution.  You get all the strength, precision, and speed of the G-Force and processor controlled electric servo drive system in the body of an articulating jib crane.

The Easy Arm is available in capacities of 165 lbs. and 330 lbs. with spans from 6′ to 14′.  The unit ships assembled and ready to install, simply bolt to the floor or cieling.  Two pivot points make it easy to reach around an obstacle or into machines.

Gorbel® G-Jib

The G-Jib is a servo-powerd lifting device that fuses the G-Force (above) technology with Gorbel enclosed track workstaion jib crane.  The G-Force actuator is mounted near the mast of the jib, so you’re not moving that dead weight like you do with traditional jib and hoist combinations.

G-Jib is available in higher capacities and spans than the Easy Arm.  Available in capacities of 330 lbs. and 660 lbs., the G-Jib reaches spans up to 16′.  Cold-formed high strength enclosed track design keeps rolling surfaces clean, contributing to easier movement and longer life.

Binar Quick-Lift Rail

Binar Quick-Lift is an intelligent device which meets the highest standards of ergonomics, working environment  safety, and efficiency.  With a patented lifting principle, Quick-Lift feels the hand’s movements and boosts the lifting power through a sophisticated electrical driving system.  When the grip of the manoeuvering handle is released, the load is automatically balanced, and the Quick-Lift System starts functioning as a conventional balancing lift.  Both hands are therefore free to place the load in its correct position.  A safety brake will secure the load in case of unexpected events such as power failure.
