Positech’s pneumatic Vertical Lift Cylinder (VLC) is ideal for manipulating heavy parts, over-the-assembly line and can assist in handling reach-in operations and can be combined with an overhead rail system or a Positech Articulated Jib Boom. Exceptional off-center payload handling for reach-in applications is derived from the vertical lifter’s heavy-duty industry-leading design, which uses external cylinder tie rods and dual linear bearings. Additional safety circuits can be added to prevent the accidental release of a part or a sudden drop with loss of air supply when an end effector is designed to be used with this lift assist. This vertical lifter* is available in four model configurations and provides up to 2,500 pounds of payload capacity.
