Original Press Release:
Unidex Introduces New Heavy-Duty ECL Series Electric Column Lift Manipulators with Load Capacities to 500 Lbs.
(SEPTEMBER 2005) - Unidex, Inc., Warsaw, New York introduces its new heavy-duty Model ECL Series Electric Column Lift manipulator with a load capacity of up to 500 lbs. The ECL manipulator is designed as a fine-height lifting system with 270° articulating arms plus end effectors for handling close tolerance work positioning requirements. According to Unidex, the new ECL Series manipulators offer twice the load capacity of its standard models and feature an electric-powered chain/sprocket drive that provides lifting and lowering while the end-of-arm controls provide three-speed vertical height adjustment. The unique design allows smooth, continuous movement throughout the work area. Horizontal movement is not restricted by vertical supports, cables or vacuum hoses. This permits the arm to maintain the attitude of the load for reach-in or reach-under applications.
The new ECL Series heavy-duty manipulator has a standard lift stroke of 54" and load capacity of 500 lbs. 96" from the centerline. An Aut-O-Loc(TM) braking system provides firm support and protects the operator from downward movement in case of chain or drive failure. Tubular and bridge-style arms are provided in standard lengths of 72" and 92" from the carriage to the end of the arm pivot. Manually-guided articulating arms are available with radial reaches up to 96 inches, the company says.
Unidex states that the new ECL Series manipulator is the latest addition to its comprehensive line of ergonomic material handling equipment, and can be customized with a variety of optional features including:
o Stainless steel for construction for sanitary or corrosive environments and nickel-
plated for corrosion-resistance. (Other special materials and finishes available.)
o Variety of lift strokes and load capacities.
o Various articulating arm lengths and designs.
o Standard and customized end effectors.
o Lever arm, push-button or pendant controls.
o Overhead mounting systems.
o Mobile units.
