55-gallon drum

Case Study #126: Drums


Problem: A new storage area was being created that required compact (vertical) storage of various drums used at the facility. Low overhead clearance and a variety of drum types required special grip considerations.

Application: Grip the drum in a vertical position on the pallet, lift and pitch to a horizontal position, set down on the floor and then release. Must be able to perform this sequence in reverse.

Solution: Taurus® Manipulator (TPA-15) with 780 lbs. payload capacity, 55″ of vertical lift and 330° main post rotation. Operator controls included a twist metering control, push button grip/release with pitch up/down spring counterbalanced control station. O.D. gripper was fitted with thick, pliable grip pads and adjustable grip pressure regulator.
