Ergonomics and Safe Lifting for Material Handling Systems and Overhead Cranes
Ergonomics is about a Safer Lift
Ergonomic lifting systems fill the void between traditional lifting devices (such as a chain hoist) and completely automated robotic solutions – they are the custom solution that provides the highest level of safety and comfort for the operators. They enable operators to lift heavy loads and maneuver naturally as if the devices were an extension of their arms while providing a combination of pinpoint precision and blazing speeds that hoists and air balancers alone can’t offer.
Using a combination of devices the ergonomic lifting process uses their human operator’s intelligence and adaptability for guidance while the actual lifting work is done by the device. These systems help improve productivity, reduce the cost of product damage, and minimize work-related injuries such as repetitive stress injuries.
Well planned, ergonomic lifting, reduces workplace injuries and makes your operation more efficient.
By utilizing a wide variety of products to meet a wide number of applications, Acculift’s ability to design solutions for industrial lifting needs allows us to serve a variety of industries. Whether you have a clean room application, require a specific weight lifted, a longer boom, custom end effectors, a taller crane, different load requirements, or a variety of other modifications, we can design an ergonomic lifting solution that will work for you.
An example of such a device, the Gorbel G Force Intelligent lift device that tracks with natural human movement, can be seen in the video below.
Ergonomics Begin With The End
Proper ergonomics means that you can grab, hold and manipulate the load properly, and a purpose built end effector is your best tool for that goal. We can custom build or order end effectors for ANY material lifting. See some of our options below:
The VRL-TA series can be used to tilt rolls between horizontal and vertical. Lift and transport rolls by their core in a vertical position. A hoist is used to maneuver the rolls from a pallet, work table or to a cart....
