Just one operator for handling large sofa frames: social distancing is kept
18 June 2020
One person lifting to meet social distancing guidelines
Post-emergency health directives require businesses to ensure that a minimum distance is maintained between operators which makes an intelligent industrial manipulator the ideal solution for keeping manufacturing moving safely.
An INDEVA manipulator provides a safe working environment for a variety of material handling situations, including those which would have previously required two or more employees to work closely together.
Just one operator together with an INDEVA Lift Assist Device can safely move, tilt, overturn, lift and precisely position a heavy load effortlessly, with precise and smooth movements, meaning the job is completed effectively and social distancing guidelines are adhered to.
An INDEVA manipulator Liftronic Easy coupled with a hook gripper is the ideal solution for lifting and moving bulky sofa frames.
The operator can pick the frames from the container and place them on the painting line with almost no effort and with no help from another worker.
This is possible thanks to the electronic control of the INDEVA manipulator which allows for natural movements combining human agility and speed with the strength of a machine.
The auto-balancing feature of the Liftronic Easy allows for precise placement of the frame on the hook of the painting line and for smooth movements at all times; no jerks, no response delay to the operator intentions, no inertia force to counteract. Liftronic Easy acts as an extension of the worker ‘s arm.
