Positioners / Ferris Wheel Positioners
  • Most space-efficient, two-station positioner design for parts 3-5 meters long

  • Two design configurations:

    • Slim-Line models with cell footprint only one meter wider than part span

    • Large capacity model with locking pins on each side to stabilize parts in
      front of robot while heavy parts are hoisted on load station

  • Ergonomic load height and angle of fixture can be varied to ease part loading

  • MotoMount fixture mounting system for quick change and longer life

  • Z-beam center support provides maximum clearance for fixture turning and
    overhead clearance on operator side for hoist access

  • Three servo-motor control

    • All axes can turn simultaneously while indexing

    • Operator can jog station axis while robot welds

  • Integrated high amperage (1,200/1,600 A) weld ground brushes

  • Hollow tailstocks and optional slip-rings with DeviceNet or Ethernet cabling
    and air for automated fixturing
