Case Study #123: Wheel Hubs


Problem: Operators were lifting hubs out of a crate and holding the heavy part, while trying to align the wheel stud holes and place it on the wheel. This procedure required two operators and still resulted in back injuries.

Solution: Simple Air Manipulator® (LS-100) with 470 lbs. of machine capacity and 360° main post rotation. Floor mounting pedestal with parallel linkage. Twist metering valve controls with push button grip/release and a Gripper Safety Circuit. Grip actuator with continuous rotation capability, parallel linkage master jaws and replaceable brass insert jaw pads.
