Case Study #111: Filter in Press Stack
Problem: The end-effector must be able to access both sides of the aisle in the workstation. Low headroom limits available handling options.
Application: Remove individual filters from a stack of filters along both sides of an aisle in a low headroom work cell. The filter is removed from the stack and taken to one end of the row for cleaning.
Solution: Articulated Jib Boom (AJB) and Vertical Lift Cylinder (VLC) mounted on a light rail trolley. An end-effector with a hook on each end was designed to reach between the filters and a tool bar was designed to reach across the face of the filter to position the hook on the rear.
