A Hydraulic Component Manufacturer uses the Gorbel Easy Arm® instead of a $30,000 manipulator to help decrease worker injuries. The Easy Arm® cost only a fraction of what the manipulator would have while performing the same task. The Easy Arm® is an Intelligent Lifting Device designed to give human-like control and machine like strength to move heavy & fragile materials quickly and safely.
Originally the workers had been manually lifting the 90lb parts. An issue because of the increased risk of worker injury which comes with manual lifting but also due to the need for precise placement of the parts into a machine. The manufacturer could have used a $30,000 manipulator or a bridge crane with a G-Force® to do the same job, however the Easy Arm® was a cheaper all-in-one solution.
The operators were amazed with how easy the Easy Arm® was to operate & move when using the float mode on the Easy Arm®. They were so amazed in fact that the manufacturer is now looking for other opportunities to use the Easy Arm® in their facility.
