The OEM of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) discovered that linear actuators used in the design of their AGVs were wearing out sooner than expected. Columbus McKinnon was able to replace the previous actuator with the Duff-Norton brand LT50-2-50 linear actuator, a long-lasting micro limit switch actuator.
To help solve an ergonomic problem they were encountering on their assembly line, a large automotive OEM approached Columbus McKinnon’s Unified Industries and our Channel Partner for assistance. At the facility, employees working at the customer’s final assembly unload station were having difficulty moving the existing steel trussed overhead crane system – to the point that it even caused operator injury. Unified Industries products helped address this issue.
Each year, Georg Fischer Automotive manufactures more than 35,000 tons of castings at its site in Herzogenburg, Austria. To help move materials throughout the facility, the company required a modern charging crane. This is where Austrian CraneSystems and STAHL CraneSystems teamed up to provide a fast, high-tech crane solution.
