The structure of your material handling project can starts with specifying what equipment is needed. Cranes, hoists, tooling, controls, tube lifters, and fall protection are some of the main pieces of equipment you may require. JRG will work with your team to evaluate exactly what is needed, and come up with a world-class solution.
When finding the best tool to pick and place your loads, JRG has you covered. We offer a full spectrum of grippers, vacuum tools, spreader beams, hooks, and magnets to help your operator get the job done easily and efficiently.
Grippers are designed to your product specifications, and will use shop air as its energy source. The jaws can be made custom to fit irregular parts that are designed and engineered by AIMCO Manufacturing. These manipulators can also use pneumatic power to rotate and tilt the loads as needed.
Flat parts, like sheet metal, are great for vacuuming tooling due to their smooth and non-porous surface. There are several options that JRG has for these tools, including standard economical units, and custom designed ones. These systems can run off either electrical power or shop air, depending on the customers needs.
Using a simplistic tool that requires no external power, is the most economical and efficient handling method when possible. This can include the use of hooks, spreader beams, and custom lifting fixtures. Below are some examples of these style tools that are available from JRG:
When harnessing the power of shop air, pneumatic hoists will run with the speed of the operator. These aluminum bodied head units are made to last, even in the harshest conditions. Please read more below about the air hoists that are commonly used in JRG work cells:
