NA 2010, slated for April 26-29, will showcase more than 500 exhibits and include a comprehensive educational conference. The event, held at the I-X Center in Cleveland, will offer an array of products to help improve productivity at your company.

The G-Jib incorporates the supplier’s G-Force intelligent lifting device and an enclosed-track workstation jib crane to enhance precision throughout its full range of speed. This design gives the operator the control to finesse expensive or fragile parts. Features include an industrial processor-controlled servo drive system with the actuator in a fixed position near the vertical truss of the crane. It eliminates the deadweight of moving a hoist along the rail for easy movement and maximum productivity with reduced risk of operator injury. The system offers capacities of 330 and 660 pounds, spans of 6 feet to 15 feet, and may be mounted free-standing or on a wall/column.
