The first modular ergonomic manipulator solution – fixed or mobile – that is entirely electrical and autonomous.
The on-site assessment by the Supratec engineers resulted in several months of in-house ideas.
Thanks to our experience in integrating 100 manipulators for our various clients and our expertise in different technological building blocks, our engineering teams proposed a modular solution that could be adapted to various needs.
This resource, available in different fixed or mobile versions, integrates technologies widely used by Supratec in other systems: AGV systems, batteries, safety systems, raise/lower systems, plate rotation systems for the manipulator, and systems that can connect one manipulator to another and to an ERP system. For the mobile version, the Supratec engineering teams integrated omnidirectional wheels developed in-house. This integration allows in particular for great flexibility of movement. For the fixed manipulator, Supratec also sought to offer flexibility by suggesting a self-supporting manipulator. The last important aspect was to offer a completely electric solution for accuracy when handling parts, and to standardise the manipulator design in order to facilitate its maintenance.
Consequently, eMove improves flexibility, reconfigures the workshop, organises production in an entirely “lean” way, reduces civil engineering in the workshop, improves productivity, reduces the transition phases to the bridge crane, and even reduces the use of the bridge crane between each workstation.
