Work Cell for Maintenance on Automotive Molds The Problem: Workers for a manufacturer of plastic injection molded parts for the automotive industry were physically strain from pushing a gantry crane. Plastic injection molds, weighing over 2,000 lbs, were transported to the maintenance work-cell on a rolling cart, maintained, and reassembled in the maintenance work-cell. The workers were tasked to pick the molds with a steel gantry crane, then walk the mold and crane together onto the appropriate maintenance table. This action caused physically strain.

The Solution: The company chose a Gorbel Free Standing Work Station Crane. Workers are able to roll the mold cart into the maintenance work-cell, pick the mold off the cart by simply moving the bridge into position, and then place the mold on the appropriate maintenance table. Workers feel the difference and ergonomic benefit of the Gorbel work station crane.

“The mold maintenance process is a lot more efficient now and the guys all love the new crane” Randy T
