Case Study #117: Engine Intake Manifold
Problem: Device must handle a variety of parts and part weights. Close work area makes it impossible to use a floor mounted unit. Cycle time is short.
Application: The application requires a very quick and light duty unit to assist the operator to install engine intake manifolds from a pallet stack to a moving automotive engine assembly line.
Solution: Overhead mounted light duty X-Y rail system. Pneumatic balancer and mounting bracket. Light weight hook hung end-effector with quick change contact points on end-effector to fit various parts.
