Unique Angles: Can A Lift and Rotate Unit Stop at Any Angle?

on Monday, January 7, 2019 By | Ron Schwar | 0 Comments | Lift and Rotate Applications
An important aspect of automated material handling for many of our integrator clients is the ability to precisely control the motions of each conveyor mechanism. For example, our servo-driven Lift and Rotate Unit is designed to rotate to any angle needed up to 360 degrees. Rotation can be programmed exactly, giving them virtually unlimited control over their device. Whether their goal is visual inspection, etching preparation, winding, or another assembly operation, you’re able to stop the Lift and Rotate at any angle to meet their needs.
