Gorbel (Booth 1259), a leading manufacturer of material handling and fall protection solutions, is offering a preview its new Easy Arm 660, a new product in its successful family of Intelligent Lifting Devices, at its booth. The device will be available for purchase later this year.
This new Easy Arm, with load capacity up to 660 pounds, addresses a variety of application needs ranging from placement of automobile engines, to loading of large plates in CNC machines. This free-standing, plug and play lifting solution incorporates the popular G-Force Intelligent Lifting technology with the body of an ergonomic articulating jib crane. The unit offers the responsiveness and flexibility of a human operator with unparalleled precision. Boasting spans up to 14 feet, the Easy Arm 660 covers a wide area and handles unique “pick and place” operations. In addition to pinpoint precision, the unit can reach lifting speeds up to 45 feet per minute for high production environments.
The integral, electrical servo-powered G-Force is fully-programmable to match the device with the work being performed, and can be outfitted with tooling capabilities designed specifically for the size and structure of the load. Capacity overload, power loss protection, and a built-in float mode for exact positioning allow the system to stand-out from other lifting devices.
Allowing workers full control when lifting and positioning items weighing up to 660 pounds, the Easy Arm 660 provides a complete solution in a single, compact package.
