Increasing Productivity & Protecting Workers with Gorbel Easy Arm® Intelligent Lifting Device


Employees making a nutritional supplement for horses need to produce premixes. Ingredients arrive in 50 pound boxes and bags. 30-40 bags and boxes are needed for each mix and 20-25 mixes are produced each day.

The Problem

The workforce at this location and is aging. They were having to manually move these bags and boxes onto pallets throughout the day. The Manager of Operations wanted to provide an ergonomic solution that would assist the employees with this task.

The Solution

A Gorbel Easy Arm® Intelligent Lifting Device was the solution. The technology enables the operator to lift and maneuver naturally, as if the device were an extension of their own arm.
