Free Standing Bridge Crane

    Imagine that a worker needs to move back and forth while manipulating heavy loads or machine parts. If you have a flexible production facility, you can easily install a bridge crane on a 6-inch concrete floor and create the ability for the worker to perform the desired task. Because there is no overhead mounting required, there will be no unnecessary stress on the facility's structure. Here are some key features of our Free Standing Work Station Cranes:

  • Enclosed track. You can erect the work station bridge crane anywhere on the facility floor. It provides for easy movement of the heavy load along the moving surface.
  • Ease of movement. This kind of assembly allows for the easier movement of bridge and trolleys, and there is no debris buildup along the track. Consistent, easy movement ensures the longevity of trolley wheels. Which means less maintenance, less possible repairs, and less downtime.
  • Superior load positioning. When the bridge moves along the enclosed track, there is no unexpected shifting, such as swaying, shimmying, or crabwalking. The load is transported efficiently from point to point because every part of the frame is assembled to ensure superior load distribution.
  • Flexible precision. With a sturdy design, workers can count on the precise location of the load as they perform their tasks. As your product requirements change, the work station can be moved to accommodate your workers’ needs on the assembly line.

"When it came down to ease of use, it was by far Gorbel®, there was no one that was even close to having a system that worked as well or easy as the Gorbel® system."
