G-Force Q and iQ Intelligent Lifting Devices

More Information

The G-Force is part of an existing new family of material handling equipment known as Intelligent Lifting Devices (ILD’s). It uses exclusive patented technology and an industrial processor controlled servo drive system to deliver unmatched lifting precision and speed. Its fusion of advanced technology and basic human guidance maximizes productivity while minimizing the risk of injury to the operator.

Infinite Speed Control
G-Force moves with the operator, as fast or as slow as the operator chooses to move. It is ideal for applications that require high speed at some points in the cycle and slow, precise movements at other points.

Pinpoint Precision
G-Force delivers unparalleled precision at speeds from less than 1 fpm up to 200 fpm to give operators the control necessary to finesse expensive or fragile parts.

Blazing Speeds
With speeds reaching 200 fpm, the G-Force travels up to 4 times faster than traditional high-end lifting devices currently on the market, making it the fastest, most precise lifting device on the plant.

Optional Float Mode for Added Control
The G-Force is available with our versatile Float Mode option. With a mere ½ lb. of force on the load itself, operators can precisely orient loads throughout the full stroke range by manipulating the load with their hands.

Available in Two Models to Meet Your Needs
The G-Force comes in two models to best match your application and budget. The Q and iQ models are both available in standard capacities of 165, 330, 660 and 1320 lbs. Both models come with standard safety features, including Anti-Recoil, Capacity Overload Protection, Power Loss Protection, Operator Present Sensor, E-Stop Button and Operator Indicator Lights.
