Minipartner

Industrial manipulator with balancer

The MINIPARTNER industrial manipulator, featuring a double cable equipped with simple gripping tools, allows easy handling of light loads throughout the working area. The gripping tool is connected to the balancing group by two independent steel cables to guarantee maximum safety for the user. Mounted overhead with a double track system, it offers an easy translation in order to cover a long working area.

Operation

A pneumatic cylinder fed with compressed-air and combined with a transmission cables system provides balance to the load weight applied.

The cylinder force is controlled through two pneumatic circuits. The first circuit always keeps the weight system balanced; the second always keeps the weight load balanced. The operator can change the load level by applying a minimum force on the gripping tool or directly on the load.


Stainless steel version

Dalmec can manufacture the Manipulator Minipartner in stainless steel.

The Manipulator and the gripping equipments are built for cleanliness in the pharmaceutical, food and chemical industries, as well as in other sterile environments.

The structure is realized using AISI 304 stainless steel with few parts in AISI 420/421. Welding is mostly performed using MAG and MIG methods in an inert gas atmosphere; major welds, from an aesthetic and functional standpoint, are ground and smoothed. Visible surfaces are polished and brush-finished.


Explosion-proof version in conformity with ATEX Directive

Dalmec can supply an explosion-proof version in conformity with ATEX Directive, suitable for the installation of the Manipulator in explosion-risk environments classified as zone 1 or 2.

The certification is made in our plant by the qualified Engineer of a Notified Body according to the ann. IX 94/9/EC-ATEX Directive, which ensures the total conformity of the Manipulator with the Directive.


Preselector

Allows for fast presetting of the load balancing effect in case of weight change.


Up/down lever

Enables quick, precise and linear lifting and handling of the load without any adjustments through manipulating a lever control.


Lever push button

Manipulating a pneumatic push button after lifting the load through a lever control allows for efficient load balancing.


Automatic

Manipulating the gripping through proper controls allows for automatic load balancing without any adjustment.

Minipartner Overhead Running Mounted

Fixing

The Manipulator is supplied with overhead trolleys to run in a track system.
The running system is composed of two main parts:

  • Mono rail bridge crane – composed of one special cold rolled section complete with trolleys and compressed-air supply spirals to slide manually in the tracking.
  • Dual-rail tracking – composed of two tracks in a special cold rolled metallic section, complete with suspension brackets approximately every 2500 mm and end buffers.

Suspension on the support structure

The track suspension on the support structure is done with rods and suspension brackets.
