Unparalleled precision in positioning a rotor into the stator housing
10 June 2019
Positioning a rotor into the stator housing may become an extremely strenuous task for an operator due to the weight of the rotor and the narrow area in which the rotor is to be mounted.
A lift assist device is necessary; a hoist is certainly not the right solution because the fixed speed and the need to keep the button pressed makes it very user unfriendly and not ergonomic.
A pneumatic manipulator is not the right solution either because its reactivity to the operator intentions is not in real-time, so positioning a rotor cannot be carried out as smoothly and precisely as the operator would do it without the aid of a machine.
Finally, the perfect solution was found: an INDEVA Liftronic Series manipulator. Thanks to the intelligent INDEVA technology, it acts as an extension of the human arm allowing the operator to lift and move heavy loads effortlessly. Positioning a rotor into the stator housing became an easy task carried out with speed and unmatched precision.
