The company's Cart Lift System, a new enhancement to the FlexiMate™ transport line, eliminates handling of carts in high-volume production assembly cells. The lift elevator is said to easily integrate into existing or originally designed FlexiMate manufacturing cells. Configured to increase productivity and improve ergonomics, the lift elevator automatically keeps carts moving through the assembly process. Activated by a proximity switch, a rodless pneumatic cylinder raises and lowers carts to or from the return track at the beginning and end of an assembly cell. The lift system operates on an 80 psi air supply and 120 V a.c. Designed for safety, the cart lift system is encapsulated, eliminating possible contact with moving parts. If, however, accidental contact is made during operation, a pressure differential switch "freezes" the action. In addition, a conveniently located emergency button immediately stops the system in position.
