ATI'S New Mobile Die Handling System

Mentor, Ohio -- Air Technical Industries, Inc. introduces a “New Heavy Die & Mold Installation and Retrieval System”. This system is self-loading and unloading and is capable of installing heavy dies into the press effortlessly by one person. This is done safely and efficiently which will eliminate injuries like pushing, flexing, stretching, reaching, etc.

This unique new design features two short arms and two long arms to do the pushing and pulling with just a press of the button instead of 3 or 4 people doing it strenuously. The pushing, pulling and lifting is hydraulically activated with ample force to do the job. The push/pull arms are manually positioned or can also be hydraulically powered. The arms can pull the die or mold from the storage shelving to the conveyor top deck which is elevated to the desired height. It then securely holds the load to transport it to the press. The unit then raises or lowers the die to the press table height and then pushes the die as deep into the press as required.

The unit is mobile, mounted on wheels and casters with “T” type bar for lighter units. For easy mobility, the wheels are roller bearing mounted with polyurethane treads that provide smooth rolling and protects the floor. Heavier units are available self-propelled with variable speed control and 90 degree steering capability. This allows the unit to maneuver in narrow aisles between the machine presses to make sharp angle turns. The self-propelled unit is battery powered with a built-in battery charger that makes the unit self sufficient.

The capacity available is 2000 lbs up to 50,000 lbs with a lifting range from 14” up to 120” high for multi-level self storage and retrieval systems. The size ranges from 24” up to 96” wide and 48” up to 144” long.

The unit is specifically designed with ergonomic and safety considerations and provides efficient time savings for installation of heavy dies and molds. In addition, the unit can be used for handling many other heavy items such as manifolds and machine loading of heavy parts which provides the operation more up-time while taking the load off the peoples' backs.
