Speed Control Made Easy with Gorbel Tractor Drives


A Company that manufactures food processing machinery was looking to improve their production processes. Ergonomic justification was the goal of the project along with safety and protection of the machinery in the cell. In this application, the workers were required to load steel parts into a sophisticated CNC milling machine in a work cell that is 30’x60.’  

The Problem

The machines were being loaded by forklifts. This was awkward, inefficient, and not safe for workers.

The Solution

A Free Standing Gorbel Work Station Crane was perfect for the application. The customer opted for tractor drives in order to control the speed as parts were moved around the expensive machinery in a work cell.
