Case study: Doncasters Precision Castings

The Problem
How to turn over delicate and irregularly shaped moulds weighing up to 250kg without breaking them or causing internal invisible cracking.

The Solution
An AsistMate 4000 Electric Lifting Column was equipped with a bespoke pneumatic gripper with self-locating pressure regulated gripping fingers to equalize and distribute loading on the mould.

The Outcome
This has led to improved safety and eliminates damage to the mould which represents several £1000s per broken mould and has proved very beneficial.
