Greg Brown, president W.W. Cannon, Inc., collaborated with Micah Embrey, Vice President Shamrock Precision, to design a crane system for their CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) Machine Shop.  They needed a safe and efficient way to move heavy tools in-and-out of the machine shop.

The G-Force Crane was the perfect solution needed to safely move heavy equipment, increase productivity, and create a safer work environment for personnel.  W.W. Cannon’s installation manager, Richard Fargason with J.R. Mounger led the installation of the Gorbel’s G-Force crane.
