FÖRSTER manipulators position small or large, light or heavy workpieces steplessly on multiple axes.
Demanding assemblies with different welding positions can be machined in the correct position and in an ergonomic working position in one clamping.
We adapt component-specific payload and equipment features as well as optional versions of the table surfaces to customer-specific requirements.
Hight adjustable weld and assembly table with rotary and tilt function
With our own development, the Ergofix manipulator, work steps are made considerably easier. The manipulator is a height-adjustable table with a hydraulic stroke of 690 to 990 mm, it can be manually tilted up to 45° and rotated 360° in any position.
This means: Working in an ergonomically favorable position and the best possible seam position for very good welding results.
for welding by hand
For light or heavy components with many different welding positions, manipulators are the solution for quality and high-quality welds executed in an ergonomic position.
The infinitely variable positioning of the workpiece takes place via three independently controllable axes. A handy remote control enables all movements to be controlled and the component rotation can be operated via a foot pedal.
FÖRSTER manipulators and positioners are available in a variety of designs and ensure synchronization even with asymmetrical clamping.
Advantages of positioners and manipulators
Manipulators and positioners in connection with robot systems are integrated directly or indirectly into the robot control as additional movement axes.
This enables a synchronized movement with the robot, which forms the basis for perfect processing quality.
The weight of the component and the position of the component’s center of gravity are primarily decisive for the selection of a suitable manipulator. In addition to these two criteria, we incorporate further customer-specific requirements into the design in order to be able to offer you the ideal manipulator.
