The mission

  • 50 kg heavy pinion will be placed in a lathe.
  • It is not possible to lift from the top because the lathe is encapsulated
  • The work is done at shoulder height and half a meter into the lathe
  • The lift should go fast and easy

Requirements for the manipulator

  • Grasp up to 50 kg safely without damaging the cogwheel.
  • Hold the load on "straight arms" without straining the operator
  • Enable exact placement on the lathe knob
  • Work with pinions of different weights without adjustment

The solution: Ergobalancer® BB90

  • Balancing for constant balance
  • Two-hand grip for grip and release
  • Flexible arm system
  • Parking brake when the machine is not in use
