Problem: Different sized steel and plastic buckets are manually picked from a 34″ high conveyor and placed onto a 5″ high pallet on the floor and then stacked three high. End-user would like to safely and securely handle three buckets at the same time to reduce repetitive motion stresses and increase productivity.

Application: Pick up five gallon buckets of paint from a conveyor and place/stack them on a pallet three tiers high.

Solution: Articulated Jib Boom (AJB-60) with 100″ maximum reach and a pneumatic balancer; reeved to increase lifting capacity and 40″ of lift. Special vacuum plate end-effector with three vacuum generators and a closed cell foam seal to handle three steel or plastic buckets at the same time.
