Battery loading manipulator
The manipulator serves to load electric batteries to hybrid cars. As each battery weighs from 13 to 50 kilograms, it would be unimaginable to load them manually. Instead, a long arm reaching behind backseats is used.
The device uses an active pneumatic balance system which adjusts itself according to the changing weight of the burden. Combined with an electronic manipulation secures an accurate, simple and safe manipulation with batteries. The manipulator is hung on a trolley device enabling its movement in a defined space of the line. Adjustable mechanical stops secure a geometry adjustment to a specific workplace according to surrounding aspects. Working upstroke of the grasping arm is up to 1.1 metres.
