Original Press Release:
Pneumatic Clamping Lifter Picks Up and Rotates Delicate Material
A below-the-hook pneumatic clamping lifter that picks up delicate material and then orients it for insertion into processing or assembly equipment is being introduced by The Cooke Corporation of Georgetown, Massachusetts.
The Cooke Model CK350 Pneumatic Clamping Lifter picks up delicate material from the sides using two pads which evenly distribute the clamping pressure and then can transport it by crane to the next process station or job cell. Featuring clamping forces applied through pneumatic cylinders, which can be adjusted using an air regulator, the clamping pad rotation is controlled by a hand powered gear box for multi-axis rotation to orient parts as needed.
Constructed from structural steel with a design factor of 5:1, per ANSI B30.20 standards, The Cooke Model CK350 Pneumatic Clamping Lifter incorporates an air reservoir and check valve to maintain clamping pressure even if the air supply is cut off. For added operator safety, both hands must be on the handlebar to use this lifter which only requires 100 psi shop air.
The Cooke Model CK350 Pneumatic Clamping Lifter is priced from $5,995.00, depending upon specific pad construction and special customer requirements. Literature is available upon request.
