  • Giving Back Through the United Way

    by Susan Griepsma | Apr 24, 2018

    On Thursday, April 19th, a group of Gorbel® employees took part in the United Way’s Day of Caring. They started with a morning rally at the Canandaigua VA and then spent the day volunteering at Light Hill in Canandaigua. Light Hill is a home that provides specialized care for the terminally ill, their families, and loved ones. 

    The team from Gorbel® helped clear out and spread wood chips on a new walking path around the facility. It was a chilly day, but the manual labor and caring staff at Light Hill helped keep everyone warm. Everyone was impressed and appreciative of the progress made by the Gorbel® Team.

  • NEW Flyer! End Tooling for G-Force® and Easy Arm®

    by Jennifer D'alessandro | Jan 24, 2018
    Gorbel G-Force® and Easy Arm® Intelligent Lifting Devices are high speed, high precision, intelligent lifting devices that often require end tooling to complete a total solution that will grip, lift, move, lower and release a load and allowing the full benefit of increased productivity, reduced product damage and superior ergonomics.

    Choosing the right end-effector tooling to complement your G-Force® and Easy Arm® is the key to maximizing your lifting solution. End-effector tooling engages the load so it can be lifted and manipulated in whatever way your application requires – whether the load needs to be flipped, turned, or rotated.

    Gorbel dealers utilize our worldwide network of tooling integrators to provide the best solution for your application. This gallery of solutions shows different examples of Gorbel G-Force® and Easy Arm® units with end effectors to help you visualize the range of potential solutions for your lifting applications.
