  • Provide a solution for true linear movement.
  • Pre-engineered modular designs enable Gorbel Work Station Crane Systems to be adapted for more sophisticated applications. This is done by the addition of extra tracks, curves, switches, and interlocks (transfers)
  • The monorail curve is a section of track that is formed to provide a 90° bend. Curve sections have a straight area that projects beyond the curve. The curve needs to be supported with three hangers.

    Interlocks/Transfers: Gorbel’s interlock/transfer cranes allow loads to be transferred from a bridge crane to monorail spurs and vice-a-versa. Click for Enlarged ViewThe interlock/transfer cranes are fast and easy to use. The bridge only engages the interlock when the operator actuates it so they do not impede the workers when not in use. The interlock is designed so the trolley stops will lock and not allow the passage of the hoist trolley until the bridge and monorail are in alignment and mechanically linked. The bridge and monorail spur cannot be separated until the trolley stops are fully closed and in the locked position. They can be easily adapted to an existing Gorbel Work Station Bridge Crane.
