What’s on our floor: SkyHook extra-large positioners

Large Robotic Positioners

Automation systems come in a variety of sizes. Some are small enough to process sensitive medical operations. They scale up from there to robotic systems that can process parts the size or weight of a car and beyond.

Today on our floor we have a couple of our custom designed robotic positioners that are designed to operate on the largest of scales. These positioners can handle up to 30,000 kg of payload, but have the motion control ability that can match conventional industrial robots. The MWES SkyHook positioners can also offer 360-degree rotation on two of its axes to place the potential 30+ tons of payload in a variety of positions safely and repeatably.

Typically, these systems are used in combination with other robotic systems for welding and inspecting components where substantial throughput gains can be had just repositioning multiple ton parts in an automated fashion.

If you’re manufacturing large products, with MWES automation is possible. Contact us today to learn how we can streamline your operations.
