Gorbel Tool Jib
We recently sold, and installed several tool jibs to a new customer who had ergonomic issues on their production line.
Industry: Commercial wire and cable manufacture
Challenge: Usage of powered tools in relation to the cable spooling machine. The tools used to complete the spooling of wire and cable to each wooden spool are heavy, cumbersome, and fatiguing.
Solution: Install a Tool Jib Crane including tool balancers capable of suspending the cutting and crimping tools for operator ease. A Gorbel TSJ 100 series crane, and ENCO Tool Balancers were installed in close proximity to the cable spooling machine. This allowed the operator to have tools for performing the task close at hand which reduced operator fatigue, increasing productivity, and decreasing tool damage.
