This application utilizes a custom “C-clamp” style gripper paired with a PM 44-S to lift and manipulate a customer’s parts. The custom gripper is designed to grip 4 different parts, all of which are long and slender. Some of the parts had rectangular cross-sections, while others were cylindrical. All of the parts are 3 to
Before investing in a FlexArm, the customer used an overhead bridge crane with a fixture that required the operator to manually fasten the part to the fixture. Hanging from a chain, the part was not able to freely move to the various angles and orientations needed for loading into their machine. The PM-22A allows the
FlexArm Part Manipulators make lifting operations easier and safer for the operator. This application involves the PM-33S model arm with a custom end effector that utilizes a pneumatic gripper to pick and place 50 lb. parts into a tensile strength testing machine.
FlexArm’s manipulator arms are a great solution for eliminating the strain caused by lifting heavy loads or reaching into an enclosed area. This specific application helps the assembly process of an industrial fan manufacturer. FlexArm created an end effector to pick up motors with the PM-33A model arm. Before investing in a FlexArm, the customer
This application features FlexArm’s PM-22A model arm with a custom end effector that utilizes a long-stroke pneumatic gripper to pick up 6 different parts. This solution eliminates the customer’s current “buddy lift” protocol, making a two-person operation easily and efficiently accomplished by one. The weight of the parts ranges from 60-90 lbs. The controls for
Watch the video of this application at the bottom of this page. A customer inquired in looking for an ergonomic solution to pick up parts weighing 50 pounds. They were lifting the parts by hand, so they wanted a solution that would prevent injury and keep their workers safe. The PM-33A Part Manipulator was chosen
