Industrial Manipulator with Ring Handler
Positech’s Simple Air Manipulator (SAM) is fitted with a custom end effector that is engineered to handle large, lightweight rings. The part is trapped inside of the large rolled ring by adjustable manual clamps. This unique design allows for manual rotation in 2 axes while still supporting the part on on all sides. The machine and end effector are designed to a 5:1 safety factor and the rigid design of the SAM allows for accurate placement and control of large lightweight parts. The SAM is bolted to a portable base to allow for easy movement of the manipulator between work cells.
