ZERO -G is a manipulator operated exclusively tire for handling of flat glass or windows in conditions of maximum safety . Through the load lifting equipment can consistently check the spatial location of the object to be moved within a large workspace . The ergonomics ensures pan and tilt rotation that make the process work quickly and flexibly. The gripping system suckers and the system of weight balance allow movement in two directions in an area of a diameter up to 6,000 mm . The configuration of self standing base allows great mobility inside the plant.
The balancing system, by means of a thrust device mounted on recirculating ball bearings and linear guides, ensures perfect compensation of the vertical load in any position and along the entire stroke. Zeroing of the product weight is done by means of a preselector that is adjusted manually, or by the push-button lever balancing system (optional). The movement system is extremely smooth and fluid and, once the weight of the object is balanced, requires no effort on the part of the operator. The manipulators are equipped with parking brakes on all three axes. Once the operator has applied the brakes by acting on the appropriate control on the console, the machine remains in the position reached.
Product gripping is quick and easy thanks to suction cups controlled by an extremely efficient vacuum system. ZERO-G can handle different product geometries by adjusting the position of the suction cup system. The release operation always takes place under the safest conditions thanks to a special device that accompanies the product in support before allowing its complete release, thus avoiding possible accidents due to incorrect or accidental manoeuvres.
The unique console is ergonomic and practical in use; with controls arranged in a simple and intuitive manner, the operator feels at ease from the very first movements and is able to take full advantage of Zero-G’s potential, safely guiding the product in any direction with minimal effort. The console can slide along the handle to better adapt to situations dictated by the work cycle, allowing the operator to choose the most comfortable position while respecting work ergonomics. On the console there are controls for load gripping and release, weight reset adjustment, pneumatic tilt and rotation functions in addition to the brake selector switch.
