Gorbel Workstation Cranes are one of the most flexible and efficient manual handling systems available. 

Being three times easier to use than traditional I beam cranes they allow for safe lifting and product handling over a large work area.

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. 

Gorbel Workstation Cranes have a multitude of uses including moving components in and out of processing machinery, moving components, tooling or fixtures on production lines, turning or positioning weldments during fabrication, handling and positioning of cartons and bags in production or warehouse situations.

The Gorbel Workstation Crane range is currently not available for online purchase however you can contact Reflex Equip today for expert advice and competitive pricing on the right Gorbel Workstation Crane solution for your particular application.


Gorbel Workstation Cranes 

Workstation cranes create safe work cells by providing flexible lifting over a wide area.

Lifting and shifting has never been easier than with Gorbel Workstation Cranes. The unique enclosed track design makes the movement of heavy items three times easier than with traditional I-beams. Gorbel Cranes are reputed for their long life. They are lightweight, easy to install and suitable for
high duty cycles.RBEL - Ceiling Mounted Bridge Cranes

Incorporates two parallel runways, suspended from the building ceiling, the 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

Ceiling mounted cranes offer the benefits of a freestanding system, without the need for floor mounted supporting steel. This makes the ceiling mounted range even more cost effective than freestanding systems.

  • Smooth effortless movement
  • Modular enclosed track system
  • Light weight and easy to install
  • Suitable for high duty cycles

Incorporates two parallel runways along which the bridge can travel. A hoist trolley can travel along the bridge, thus providing full coverage over a rectangular work area. Multiple bridges can be attached to a single workstation with varied capacities according to need.
  • Runway Spans up to 9.1 metres.
  • Bridge Lengths up to 10.3 metres.
  • Capacities from 125kg to 2000kg
Bridge Crane Freestanding (Floor Mounted)
Operationally the same as ceiling mounted except that the runways are supported on a freestanding structure.
gorbel-monorail-crane.jpg Monorail Crane
Monorails are the perfect solution when you are looking for true linear movement.They use a single runway, either ceiling mounted or freestanding along which a hoist trolley can travel.
Capacities are available from 75 - 2000 kgs.
Jib Crane - Freestanding or Floor Mounted
Freestanding and floor mounted Jib Cranes incorporate a vertical mast fixed to the floor and a horizontal boom along which a hoist trolley can travel and rotate 360 degrees about the mast to provide coverage over a circular work area.
Usually bolted directly to existing floor without special foundations
gorbel-wall-mounted-jib-crane.jpg Jib Crane - Wall Mounted
Similar to floor mounted, except that the boom rotates on a pivot fixed to the wall of a building. Wall mounted jibs provide coverage over a 200 degree semi-circular work area.
Jib Crane - Articulated
Articulating Jib Cranes position loads in places not available to traditional jibs. They provide easy rotation and consistent responsiveness throughout the cranes coverage area. By contrast traditional jib cranes prove difficult to rotate when the load is on the inner half of the boom. Free Standing Articulating Jibs can rotate up to 360° on the primary boom and 330° on the secondary boom. Capacities range from 200kg (max 4.8m span) to 400kg (max 2.4m span)

Jib Crane - Work Station
Ideal substitutes for heavy I-Beam Jib Cranes. They are designed to service circular areas and support tool balancers, air balancers, vacuum lifters and hoists.
Capacities range from 50 to 500 kg with spans of up to 4.8m

G-Force™ Hoist
The worlds best electronic hoist.

G-Force™ is an Intelligent Assist Devices (IAD's). The G-Force™ uses patented technology and an industrial processor controlled drive system to deliver unmatched lifting precision and speed. Available in models from 75 kg up to 600 kg.

Operators can lift and manoeuvre naturally, as if the device were an extension of their own arm. G-Force™ will help improve productivity, reduce product damage, and minimise work-related injuries.

Your precision lifting applications just got easier, thanks to Easy Arm™ Intelligent Lifting Arm, the newest addition to Gorbel's family of G-Force™ Intelligent Assist Devices. Gorbel have encorporated their patented G Force™ lifting technology and processor controlled servo-drive system into an ergonomic articulating jib design.

The Easy Arm™ gives the responsiveness and flexibility of a human operator plus the power of a machine. It incorporates a range of speeds so it is perfect for quick, repetitive motions and slow, precise placements.

How to Select A Crane

What is the size and shape of the work area you are looking to cover?
• Work Station Cranes offer square/rectangular coverage where Jib Cranes offer circular coverage
Is the crane going to be manual or motorized?
• When load weight or operation frequency makes manual rotation non-economical, impractical, or unsafe motorized rotation may be the answer
What is the type and extent of the structural support available?
•Floor supported, ceiling mounted, or wall/column mounted
What is the capacity of the load?
• Don't Overcrane - lifting and moving product that weighs 200kg. would only require a 250kg bridge - don't go overboard with a 500kg bridge
What is the crane's environment?
How will the crane be used in daily operation?
