Handling Issues

Rite-Hite was using an old pneumatic hoist-based roll lifter with probe tooling for horizontal lifting. They had recently added longer rolls which needed an upgraded unit with a longer probe for easily handling the heavier, longer rolls.

The Solution

ASE proposed a hoist based pneumatic C-shaped fixed probe tool with a powered center of gravity shift to adjust from short rolls to long rolls. ASE also included integration of the clients existing hoist pendant controls; this allowed for increased ergonomics and ease of use, making the handling process more user friendly for their operators. The customer was so happy with the capability of the unit, they purchased a second one for the output side of their production process.
