Case Study #103: Hydraulic Swing Cylinder


Problem: Workers had to lean over the chassis to install the cylinders resulting in several back injuries.

Application: Remove two cylinders from a customer supplied fixture which allows tool access. Transfer cylinders to the chassis, insert them into their mounting slots, and hold until the operator completes the installation.

Solution: Simple Air Manipulator® with 200 lbs. payload capacity. Floor mounted pedestal, 360° main post rotation & 360° end joint rotation. Tandem gripper assembly. Rotates end-effector so the center post is under the cylinders in their installed position. Reverse operation to remove the tooling once the cylinders are secured. Operator’s controls: hand-held or tool socketed metering valve up/down, push button grip/release and gipper safety circuit.
