Industrial Manipulators INDEVA® Liftronic® Air Series

Liftronic® Air

Liftronic®  Air belong to the INDEVA® Liftronic® Series of intelligent industrial manipulators;

It combines the intelligent control system of the Liftronic® Series with the rigid parallelogram arm structure alike the pneumatic manipulators of the PN Series.

They represent the state of the art technology for handling offset loads.

Latest generation industrial manipulators of the INDEVA®  family. They combine the strength of traditional pneumatic manipulators with the intelligence of the INDEVA®. Their power for lifting is pneumatic, but they are electronically controlled.  Models are available from 80 to 250 kg, that can be supplied either column, ceiling or overhead rail mounted. Compared to traditional pneumatically controlled manipulators, Liftronic® Air offers important advantages which help improve safety, egonomics and productivity.

Safeties: (when assembled with tooling):

  • The system stops automatically when a communication error is detected (fault inside the cables, fault inside an electronic board,…);
  • The system stops automatically when electric power supply switches off;
  • The system controls the balancer’s pressures (at different levels) and verifies the congruencies between them:
  • The system stops automatically when a fault inside the proportional electromagnetic valve is detected;
  • The system stops automatically when a fault inside the proportional pneumatic valve is detected
  • The system stops automatically when the cylinder pressure isn’t congruent with required pressure;
  • In case of load drop Liftronic® Air is much safer than traditional pneumatic logic manipulator.
  • The auto balancing model immediately counter balances the different weight, thus keeping perfectly still , with no dangerous sudden tool movements upwards.
  •  The load preset model feature a special safety device that detects any possible sudden movement and stops it;
  • The system stops automatically in case of over acceleration (due to faults);
  • The system stops automatically when the STOP button is pressed (without the intervention of programmable electronic boards – only electromechanical elements).
  • The system also generates warning (without stopping the balancer) in order to shown “out of range” working situations.

Available options:

  • Rotating joint on the articulate axis
  • System lock for the lift capacity
  • Brake for up/down movement
  • Special painting
  • Steel platform
  • Limit switch for the main and intermediate joint axis
