Zmation Announces Custom Consumer Product Transport System

Hydraulic PNP System

October 10, 1996 — Portland, OR, USA—Zmation, Inc. announced today the development of a new custom Consumer Product Transport System. This system was specifically designed to accurately grip and raise a large consumer product out of a shipping box for transport to a benchtop quality control inspection station. This system allows any production person to move very heavy products rather than requiring a muscular person and reduces the risk of back injury. Additionally, this type of system can be configured to meet many other product transport requirements for a wide variety of consumer or industrial production products.

The system incorporates an adjustable hydraulic crank and pulley system to raise and lower the product. The consumer product is held in a custom gripper which is designed to protect the product during transfer. The entire system is enclosed by a high strength aluminum extrusion assembly with panels to enclose the pulley system.

This system demonstrates some of the design and manufacturing capabilities of Zmation, Inc. for custom automation systems. Zmation also produces standard Automatic Dispensing Systems, Machine Vision Inspection Systems, and Robotic Integrated Systems for a wide variety of applications.
