Rail mounted pneumatic manipulator for handling LCD
2 July 2013
A TV set manufacturer needs to handle 4 different types of LCD TV sets, weighing max 35 kg. The manual handling required the operator a non ergonomic effort. The problem has been solved with a pneumatic rail mounted manipulator PN series by Scaglia INDEVA®. Now the operator lifts the TV set by means of the manipulator end effector equipped with vacuum pads and rotate it by 90° with no effort at all. Once rotated the operator complete the LCD TV set with its frame: he can use both his hands, whilst the load is kept still and stable by the manipulator; afterward he rotates the LCD TV set again and places it in its container.
