Available from Safetech , the G-Sync Technology consists of two G-Force iQ actuators that are mounted on separate bridges and connected through a communication cable that runs within the enclosed tube of the work station crane’s runway. The two actuators communicate back and forth, ensuring that they are in sync throughout the lift cycle. The operator maintains total control of both units through one pendant handle, which is connected to the “master” unit.
The bridges move independently along the runways to allow trays of all sizes to be moved and a buffer is placed between the bridges to prevent them from getting too close.
The Gorbel system has proven to be a reliable way to move long loads with reduced operator fatigue and without risk of injury.
Operators utilising G-Sync Technology are now able to lift the long metal trays by attaching both G-Force units to either end. The operator can safely lift the load in one synchronised motion, which keeps the load balanced and easy to position on shipping carts, by controlling the lift from one pendant handle.
Features and benefits of G-Force with G-Sync Technology:
- Using two iQ G-Force units (one that follows another) allows lifting of a load up to the maximum combined capacity of both of the actuators
- The configuration allows loads that are long or wide to be lifted from each end for better control and stability of the load
- Each actuator can operate independently, allowing each end of a load to be controlled separately when used in float mode. This allows the load to be tilted one way or the other if necessary for placement
- All ergonomic and handling benefits associated with the G Force are now available to customers with longer and heavier loads - up to 600 kg.
