Positech Corp. To Display Multiple Material Handling Solutions at Modex 2012

Logo for Modex 2012
Laurens, IA-December 9, 2011: Positech Corporation will be on display at Modex 2012 in Atlanta, GA February 5-9 in booth #3111. Positech Corp. will be displaying a wide variety of material handling solutions on a freestanding rail system including a trolley mounted Articulated Jib Lifter with multiple below the hook tools and a trolley mounted Vertical Rail Lifter Manipulator with roll handling end-effector.
The Articulated Jib Lifter (AJL) is a horizontal and vertical positioning device, with an air balancer built into the second arm. The AJL is ideal for reaching into inaccessible areas where headroom limitations preclude the use of a conventional balancer. It offers a lift capacity of 665 pounds along with a reach of up to 16 feet and 60 inches of vertical lift. The AJL has 360 degree continuous rotation at both the primary and secondary joints. It comes standard with a threaded interface at the end-of-cable and a safety latch hook at end of chain. A pistol grip metering valve control for vertical lift is standard. If overhead clearance is an issue, the secondary arm can be mounted above the primary arm. The AJL has a variety of mounting options including overhead, trolley, pedestal, wall mount or mobile/portable base. The Vertical Rail Lifter Manipulator consists of a rigid vertical beam with moving rollers, which create a stable lifting platform and eliminates swinging of a cable or chain. It offers a lift capacity of 400 pounds along with a vertical lift range of up to 100 inches. The Vertical Rail Lifter can be used as an ergonomic lift assist for reach in, under, and around obstacles. This material handling solution solves a variety of applications such as roll handling. The Vertical Rail Lifter is a low maintenance industrial manipulator that does not require an air lubricator and is pneumatically operated; only requiring 90 psi of clean dry air. This lift assist can be mounted on either an overhead platform trolley or on a Positech Articulated Jib Boom. The Positech Vertical Rail Lifter has many available options including main post brakes, bridge brakes, and trolley platform brakes. It comes standard with 360° main post rotation. Customized end-effectors, operator controls and specialized pneumatic circuitry are available to meet application requirements.

Positech Corp. introduces the fully redesigned ReactionArm® Under Positech Brand Name

Positech ReactionArm® designed to increase productivity rates while decreasing worker injury.
Laurens, IA-March 10, 2010 Positech Corporation, the leading manufacturer of material handling equipment in North America, recently launched the redesign of its ReactionArm® industrial manipulator, under the Positech brand name. The ReactionArm® Manipulator is a pneumatic torque reaction arm that absorbs shock, torsional forces and impact forces from power tools; reducing carpal tunnel injury and cumulative trauma disorders. Cumulative trauma injuries cost the United States billions each year. The ReactionArm® reduces injuries to workers’ wrists, arms and upper bodies by absorbing the shock of an attached power tool, torque gun or nutrunner. The new design offers lift capacities of up to 500 pounds (226 kg) along with a torque capacity of up to 2, 212 foot pounds (3,000 N-m). The new design also lowers balance forces, giving the operator a float feel when moving throughout the work cell. The new middle joint leveling feature allows the arm to stay in place once the operator positions it, no second arm drift. The ReactionArm® is a low maintenance industrial manipulator that does not require an air lubricator and is pneumatically operated; only requiring 90 psi of clean dry air. The ReactionArm® can be mounted overhead, on a trolley, pedestal mounted, wall mounted or mounted on a mobile/portable base. The floor mounted pedestal is provided with concrete anchor bolts, mounting hardware and leveling jacks for ease of installation (no grout required). The Positech ReactionArm® has many available options including vertical axis brakes, pistol grip or ergonomic twist grip controls and Remote Start Circuitry to ensure breaks are engaged prior to vertical torque. It comes standard with a pilot operated lock valve, minimum lift circuitry and parallel linkage to support loads beyond end-of-arm. Standard and custom tool holders, operator controls and specialized circuitry are available to meet customer requirements. Positech offers full turn-key or integration of customer supplied torque equipment. Work tools and stands that are incorporated into the work cell can also be provided.
