Gorbel G-Force

Gorbel G-ForceTM

 The G-ForceTM is part of a new family of Material Handling equipment known as Intelligent Assist Devices (IAD's). The G-ForceTM uses patented technology and an industrial processor controlled drive system to deliver unmatched lifting precision and speed. The units enable operators to lift and maneuver naturally, as if the device were an extension of their own arm.  The G-ForceTM will help improve productivity, reduce the cost of product damage, and minimize work related injuries.

  • Pinpoint precision - speeds from 1 fpm (0.3 mpm) up to 275 fpm (83 mpm)
  • Blazing speed - travels up to 4 times faster than traditional high end lifting devices
  • Infinite speed control - ideal for applications that require high speed at some points in the cycle and slow, precise movements at other points
The G-ForceTM Itelligent Lifting Device  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.

The G-ForceTM is available in two series:

G-ForceTM BXi Series

The BXi model comes loaded with standard intelligence features and programmability to customize it to your application. This series comes in capacities of 150 and 300pounds.  Higher capacities are available - contact factory.

Added Intelligence Capabilities:

  • Teachable virtual limits and speed reduction points - unit can be taught to stop or reduce speed when it reaches specific points in its lifting range
  • External inputs/outputs - endless possibilities exist for the I/O on the BXi model. Contact the factory for customized programming to maximize your BXi flexibility.
  • E-stop output - the E-stop can trigger or stop the external system that it is tied to (conveyor, CNC machine)
  • Option to interface with data systems via DeviceNet - external systems that use DeviceNet protocol can read or control the data points and parameters of the G-ForceTM
  • Easily accessible external communications port - any computer equipped with special software can be used to upgrade or monitor performance
G-ForceTM BX Series

This streamlined BX Series is a lower cost alternative for those applications that require the speed and precision of the BXi, but not the added intelligence and flexibility.  Available in 150 and 300 pound capacities.  Higher capacities available - contact factory.

  • Float mode capable
  • Inertia management
  • Mimics human motion
  • Precision capability
  • Speed range adjustment
  • Easy tooling integration
  • Operator indicator lights
  • Instant load fluctuation response system
Both series are available in 150 and 300 pound capacities.

Gorbel G-ForceTM Easy ArmTM
The Brains of a G-Force, The Body of a Jib

The G-ForceTM Easy ArmTM is the newest addition to our family of Material Handling equipment known as Intelligent Assist Devices (IAD's). We took our patented G-Force TM technology and an industrial processor controlled drive system and integrated them into an ergonomic articulating jib design.

Available in 150 pound capacity with standard spans of 6, 8, and 10 feet.

This versatile design is ideal for lifting applications that involve:
  • Reaching under obstructions and for low headroom applications - the wire rope goes over a pulley on the beam so you don't lose the headroom taken by the G-Force actuator
  • Reach around vertical obstructions
  • Reach into work cells/doorways and under overhead obstructions
  • Rapid change in direction - you don't have to move the weight of the actuator
Intelligent Crane Device

Gorbel's Intelligent Crane Device is the latest in our new line of Intelligent Assist Devices.  The Intelligent Crane Device is a servo-powered system controlled by the "directional intent" of the operator.  Adding intelligence to the crane enables the operator to start, direct, and stop the load with minimal effort.  It effectively increases safety and productivity by reducing operator injuries and the resulting cost of workers' compensation claims.

Ideal Applications:
  • Applications that require precise positioning by the operator
  • High cycle applications
  • Applications where fast, safe direction changes are needed
