Manipulation of heavy workpieces12 July 2018 | Automotive Manufacturing Solutions
Roemheld says the articulated arms on its new Centrick manipulator allow workpieces of any shape weighing up to 2 tonnes to be continuously rotated and tilted by up to 90°.
The company claims this latest addition to the Modulog range is ergonomic and space saving, and it moves components close to their centre of gravity, so the working height remains more constant. A small swivel radius and holding brakes ensure stable positioning.
Integration into assembly lines is straightforward and the manipulator is compatible with Industry 4.0 assembly processes, says Roemheld.
