Case Study #105: Rolls of Paper
Problem: The vertical up and down dimensions of the manipulator’s end-effector are critical due to the large variation in roll heights and part orientations. The end-effector must prevent the rolls from telescoping when pitched down.
Application: Picking up paper rolls from a slitter with the core horizontal and transferring them to a pallet. The rolls will be either positioned horizontally or pitched 90° for vertical core positioning.
Solution: A Simple Air Manipulator® (SAM P-112) allows simultaneous multifunction capabilities. Anti-telescoping I.D. gripper end-effector with an adjustable pad for various I.D.’s and a detachable hand control.
