FlexArm’s manipulator arms are a great solution for eliminating the strain caused by lifting heavy loads or reaching into an enclosed area. This specific application helps the assembly process of an industrial fan manufacturer.
FlexArm created an end effector to pick up motors with the PM-33A model arm. Before investing in a FlexArm, the customer had to manually pick up the 50 lb. motors from a pallet and place it in the frame of the industrial fan for assembly 5′ off the ground. This would often require two people to lift the fan into place.
