Industrial Automation Equipment

Special Purpose Machinery

This special purpose machinery lifts roofs and floors for portable buildings. As the components arrive at the workstation from elsewhere on the assembly line, a worker uses an industrial touchscreen (also known as a human-machine interface, or HMI) to begin a series of complex lifting and tilting manoeuvres to install the components onto the frame of the portable building. The worker can monitor the progress from the HMI, as well as view any warnings should the components not be seated properly on the gripper.

With components over 6m long and weighing up to 1.3 tons, this special purpose machinery provides a solution to the problem of workers being unable to physically handle the load and perform the required operations.

Handling Concepts' Special Purpose Machinery

PLC control allows the worker to operate the machine from a safe distance. The control is simple to use and low effort for the worker, who simply has to start the sequence of operations. The workstation is also hold-to-operate, ensuring the worker stays with the controller at a safe distance from the large components being manipulated.

This equipment also uses several smart sensors which can be remote accessed by Handling Concepts’ engineers, allowing them to diagnose any issues which may arise from a distance, as well as performing remote maintenance or software upgrades, saving the cost and time of service call outs.

This special purpose machinery provided a solution for the lifting of bulk loads that was impossible for workers to perform manually. Production efficiency was vastly improved, and removed the necessity for manual handling.
