Company: Air Technical Industries (ATI)
Equipment Snapshot: Air Technical Industries (ATI) has announced the development of an exciting, unique, multifunctional mini-Articularm. The unit is agile and flexible with an articulating arm reach of 72”. It can be a worker's best friend by giving the operator extra muscle strength of 150 lbs of lift, and ability to position effortlessly in X-Y-Z-R axis in a 12' circle area.
The unit helps the operator ergonomically to use more brain power instead of his muscle power for lifting, reaching, bending, pulling, and pushing. This prevents injuries as well as increasing production, performance, saving time, improving moral, getting the job done easier and faster.
The 6 axes of articulation are:
- Lifting action
- Wrist rotation 360°
- Forearm swing 270°
- Vertical tool arm swing 360°
- Gripper, lifting hook or fixture action
- Tool arm roll axis
The mini-Articularm can be electrically powered 110 volt single phase, 240-480 3 phase or air powered for hazardous areas. The controls are momentary rocker switch built into the control handle.
The mini-Articularm is an ideal tool for machine loading, assembly work, precise positioning, inverting and upending an item, picking it up from a horizontal position, rolling to vertical, or any angle desired.
The variety of end-effector or lifting tools are available and custom built for specific projects or multi tasks of different items to be handled.
