Pneumatic Manipulator for handling heavy and hot stators
A large Manufacturer of stators needed a solution to effectively improve ergonomics, safety and productivity in the production cycle that involves transportation of heavy stators.
The problem: the old press process did not meet Ergonomic requirements
The operator has to make the stator coil, press its housing, which is hot form the oven, over it, then pick the complete stator weighing 30 kg and move it on a shelf behind him. This is a quick and repetitive manual load handling cycle that implied health hazard for the operators.
PN Ergo column mounted of the PN Series with custom gripper for handling electric motor stators
PN Ergo, is a pneumatic manipulator with rigid vertical arm, suitable for handling loads that are easily reachable form the top aas in this case. Now the ergonomic and safety requirements in this work cycle are successfully met:
- the operator can keep an ergonomic position while moving the stator from the press table to the shelf behind him.
- transportation is effortless thanks to zero gravity handling condition allowed by the manipulator
- no more direct contact between the operator and the hot stator
The result is a significant increase in productivity and efficiency and improved safety
