NISSAN castings has solved a handling problem at its Dandenong castings plant by purchasing the Safetech Gorbel Easy Arm.
Electric chain hoists and vacuum lifters were unable to supply the precision lifting required for handling of the alloy transmission castings. The Easy Arm Jib incorporates the Gorbel G Force which provides operators with effortless lifting and accurate control of the casting.
It combines high speed servo-driven lifting with microprocessor control to create performance unachievable by hoists and vacuum lifters. The controls provide feather touch float control and the ability to integrate other devices into the G Force. G Force is usually combined with a Gorbel crane system while the Easy Arm combines a Gorbel jib and a G Force into a single lifting product.
