Original Press Release:
New Light Duty Articulating Jib Is Ideal for Vacuum Applications
June 23, 2008 - Gorbel is pleased to introduce the Pivot Pro(TM), the newest addition to their line of jib cranes. The Pivot Pro(TM) is a light duty articulating jib crane specially designed for capacities up to 150 lbs. Its smaller capacity allows it to have a lighter, less bulky design, so it's easy to move even in high repetition applications like palletizing.
o The Pivot Pro(TM) features a sealed tube design that eliminates the need for festooning, reducing festoon pile-up and the potential for reduced vacuum suction caused by kinked hoses.
o Its articulating knuckle design offers safer operation by limiting the "whip" of the boom that can occur in high cycle applications. It lessens the stress on the worker and also limits wear and tear on the lift tube.
o We provide the jib mast and boom, and can also provide the blower platform, filter bracket, and portable base, if you choose. You can even specify where you'd like the blower platform to fit your application. You can also specify the filter location so it's at an optimal height for easy changing of the filter.
o The Pivot Pro(TM) was designed for use with all major OEM tube lifters.
The Pivot Pro(TM) is ideal for general palletizing applications, plus applications in pharmaceutical packaging, food and beverage, packaging and printing, automotive, glass and ceramics handling, and woodworking.
