Industrial Manipulator heats up radiator production

24 September 2012

Scaglia Indeva has recently provided an Industrial Manipulator to load radiators onto a moving painting line in a safe way with quick and precise movements.

The companys' previous traditional industrial manipulators with pneumatic control no longer satisfied requirements for two reasons.

Due to typical air technological limitations the response of pneumatic controlled traditional manipulators is slow, causing imprecise movements and longer cycle time. In addition, operators must use greater physical effort when changing direction.

As the pneumatic manipulators aren't auto-weight sense and auto-balancing, as the radiators are of different sizes and weights, the operator had to stop frequentyl for balance setting adjustments each time the load weight changes.

The only solution that could satisfy the demand for quick and precise movements together with more productivity was Scaglia Indeva's Industrial Manipulator with vacuum gripper.

The Indeva, an intelligent handling system, is the evolution of traditional industrial manipulators. The Indeva constantly automatically detects and counter-balances the load weight, making the load as it were weightless. It has no buttons to keep pressed during handling operations and does not require load setting adjustments when the load weight changes.

Thanks to the electronic control system, the Indeva allows for quick and precise movements which would be impossible to achieve with traditional industrial manipulators (with pneumatic control) and with hoists. The Indeva is also equipped with ergonomic handles and finger sensitive handle providing even better response to the operators touch.

Special sensors placed on the vacuum gripping tool detect the load at a certain distance and activate the vacuum cups so that no time is wasted and the load is firmly gripped and ready to be moved as soon as it's touched by the vacuum cups. A special device allows rotation of the radiator by 180 degrees.
