Inventive Dual Purpose Tooling

Inventive dual purpose tooling installs both the steering column and the seat assembly into a tractor cab. This GCI manipulator is of steel construction, mounted overhead to save floor space in the client’s manufacturing cell. The system utilizes two sets of controls to make installation seamless for the operator, one being positioned in a traditional location: head-on, while the secondary controls are situated on the side of the tooling. Each has its’ advantage depending on the application in question. Initially, it seemed there would be a need for two separate manipulators, our design engineers devised an approach to combine the two solutions into one arm saving time and money for the end-user. With the latest in 3D modeling and an extensive background in providing engineered solutions, no material handling or torque reaction challenge is too problematic for our team.
