Gorbel is introducing its new hybrid workstation crane, an extension of the company’s enclosed track workstation crane.

The hybrid crane combines the strength of Gorbel’s patented track with the lightweight advantages of Gorbel’s aluminum enclosed track bridges. Utilizing these two features together allows for greater installation flexibility to meet longer support centres. The combination also allows for multiple higher capacity bridges to be utilized on a single crane, with no buffers.

“Gorbel has been custom configuring hybrid cranes for years and now we’ve utilized that experience to optimize and standardize the solution for our customers,” said Scott Goforth, product marketing manager at Gorbel.

“This solution fits a unique, but growing niche we are seeing in the industry, and we are extremely excited to bring another innovative product to the market that will expand our capability to meet the high standards our customers have come to expect from Gorbel.”

The hybrid workstation crane includes support centres of up to 15.25 metres. With extended support centres, there’s fewer floor obstructions. This means an easier installation and more flexibility in the location of your install.

Utilizing Gorbel’s Tarca supports and runways allows the end user to support multiple 1000# to 4000# work station crane bridges, without buffers, on a single free standing or ceiling mounted crane system. One hybrid crane can support multiple workstations or an entire process flow without losing usable crane coverage area to buffers.

As well, the hybrid crane is optimized for easy manual movement with a custom motorized solution available.

The hybrid crane also allows the incorporation of a GS Hoist, a G-Force lifting device, or both for a complete integrated system. Out of the box, plug-and-play is available for the GS Hoist.
