Solutions for Automotive Manufacturing Repetitive Tasks

Whether it’s bumpers, mufflers, A.C. units, drive shafts, doors, wheel hub assemblies, seats or body panels, the one common feature is that each part must be handled at least once at the manufacturers and every 30 to 60 seconds at the assembly plant.

Most high frequency handling involves lightweight parts in the 20 to 100 lb. range which, when occasionally lifted, can be accomplished manually, but 30 lb. every 40 seconds adds up to 21,600 lb. lifted per shift (over 10 tons).

A pneumatically controlled operator assist device suspended from a hoist or air balancer and traveling on lightweight low resistance cranes will reduce the strain and fatigue common to high rate assembly operations.

Starquip’s Mandate:

Each handling device is specifically designed to suit the product handled.  Keep it simple, lightweight, easy to use and safe.  These are the main design criteria.  The seat manufacturers device and the auto assemblers door install device are only two of many specialty devices engineered by Starquip.
