A manipulator equipped with a specific hook gripping tool for handling drums and buckets

Dalmec presents a new Posivel PVC column-mounted industrial manipulator, custom-designed and developed for handling, picking up and moving drums and pails off the production line, and placing them on pallets or transfer carts. Target markets: food, cosmetics, chemicals and pharmaceuticals.

This double-cable manipulator helps operators transfer products with great flexibility, particularly when palletizing or depalletizing buckets or cans. Ergonomic, it acts as a real load balancer.

A special feature of this new version of the Posivel PVC is its special hooked gripping tool, which adapts to the shape of the handles of buckets of varying sizes, shapes and weights, to facilitate handling. To guarantee maximum operator safety, the gripping tool is connected to the manipulator's terminal arm by two independent steel cables.  

Load balancing is automatic, allowing the bucket - weighing up to 60 kg - to be picked up safely, with controlled, balanced handling. 

This pneumatic manipulator is particularly suitable for effortless manual handling of light loads in all directions. It features a double-articulated arm structure with an intermediate joint, ensuring smooth, precise movements throughout the working area. In this particular case, the Posivel PVC manipulator has been designed to effortlessly perform repetitive and meticulous manipulations, offering a large radius of action of up to 2600 mm. 

From a technical point of view, a pneumatic cylinder powered by compressed air, coupled to a double-cable transmission system, balances the applied load. The cylinder amplifies the lifting and lowering action, which is applied manually by the operator to the gripping tool or directly to the load. 

Last but not least, this manipulator can be fully integrated into cramped working environments, thanks to its evolutionary structure and the infinite possibilities of varying the shapes and dimensions of the terminal arm. As a result, all movements in space are unrestricted, and the operator can effortlessly move the load to any point in the work area, with the utmost ease and in optimum ergonomic and safety conditions.
