Control Enclosure Assembly
Cynergy designed a lightweight, vacuum-based end tool coupled with a servo-drive lifter to lift and manipulate the various components. The servo-drive lifter provides high-speed maneuvering when desired as well as very slow, precise speed control when needed. In addition, “float mode” zero-gravity control was added to allow the operator to align the large, awkward load into position.
In addition to addressing the injury and product damage issues, the new system provided for an additional benefit by allowing the customer to reduce their manpower requirements. Job descriptions requiring 2-3 operators were rewritten for one operator offering substantial savings. Return on investment occurred within a short 5-months. The below video shows the system being used to lift, pitch and place one of the large control enclosure doors onto the cabinet.
