Portable Pipe Liner Assembly Table

Application

An industrial water heater manufacturer needed an end of the line, short travel, vertical lift to raise hot water heater flues. The system required the flues to be raised and lowered to specific elevations dependent on the height of the water heater.

Solution

A vertical reciprocating conveyor (VRC) lift with a servo driven linear actuator and chain conveyor mounted integral was designed for accurate elevation changes. The VRC was designed to raise hot water flues to connect them to a monorail drying line after painting. The servo motor allowed the flues to be accurately raised and lowered based on the height of the flues and water heaters. These VRCs were integrated with an entire robotic interface line for additional processing, also supplied by Huron Technology Corp., learn more about the rest of this specialized solution.
