This simple solution demonstrates how easy it is to integrate other lifting fixtures with a FlexArm manipulator arm.
The customer needed to load 40-90 lb parts into their machine. They designed a fixture that could attach to their parts but needed an arm to do the lifting. It was a smooth transition to pair their fixture with the FlexArm. The PM-24S model arm and a custom end effector was chosen for this application.

The simple end effector featured an interface mount to attach to their fixture. It allows the part to swivel 360-degrees about the vertical axis. This solution is eliminating strain, fatigue, and possibly the need for two people to get the job done.
