Operating a press brake can be dangerous. Parts can be heavy, large, and unwieldy to lift. FlexArm offers custom lifting solutions to make these operations easier for the user.
This simple solution demonstrates how easy it is to integrate other lifting fixtures with a FlexArm manipulator arm.
See how one Part Manipulator with custom end effector is used to lift 4 different parts.
See how the PM-22A allows the customer to move 80 lb. discs around their workstation in an easy and efficient manner.
FlexArm Part Manipulators make lifting operations easier and safer for the operator. This application involves the PM-33S model arm with a custom end effector that utilizes a pneumatic gripper to pick and place 50 lb. parts into a tensile strength testing machine.
See how the PM-33A part manipulator eliminates strain and injury due to heavy manual lifting.
See how a FlexArm Part Manipulator can turn a two-person lifting operation into a one-person operation.
A customer inquired in looking for an ergonomic solution to pick up parts weighing 50 pounds. They were lifting the parts by hand, so they wanted a solution that would prevent injury and keep their workers safe.
See how this customer will reduce neck, back, and shoulder strain by using a FlexArm Part Manipulator to life heavy gas tanks.
This Ergonomic Solutions features the FlexArm PM-22 Part Manipulator arm that was custom designed to be able to lift two different parts.
We had a customer that needed to load/unload 50 lb tubes but only had limited space to install a part manipulator arm. Here's the solution that the FlexArm engineering team came up with to solve this issue.
This week in the Ergonomic Problem Solving Series we had a customer that was manually inserting ball bearings on a roller table, so we came up with a solution using our Part Manipulator and custom end effector.
See the ergonomic solution that FlexArm came up with for this customer that had to lift a 30-lb part with extra vertical stroke.
