Haeco partners with JRC
Nov. 3, 2011 – Haeco is the exclusive North American importer of Famatec ergonomic manipulators, as well as a manufacturer of its own line of auto glazing and setting equipment. JRC Machinery will provide installation, training, service and warranty support for Haeco and Famatec product lines, including the Famatec Friendly manipulator.
JRC Machinery will introduce the new Haeco relationship and Famatec
products with a display at Canada's Win-door exhibition in booth 1552.
The pneumatically-powered Famatec Friendly precisely counterbalances
heavy loads, allowing operators to effortlessly suspend, rotate, tilt
and transfer product with ease and precision. Equipped with the
appropriate end-of-arm tooling, it is the perfect friend for
manipulating, transferring or installing everything from wheels, bags,
dashboards and small engines to wood panels, glass plates and barrels.
Various models are available with load capacities up to 1,100 pounds,
with a potential working radius of up to 20 feet. Available exclusively
from Haeco, and now JRC Machinery in Canada, the Famatec Friendly costs
less than an average worker's compensation back-injury claim, according
to company sources.
The Friendly is available with a wide range of mounting options
including column, overhead, tracks, wheeled or with a free-standing,
fork-truck transportable base. Other Famatec models adapt to any
irregularly shaped product such as racks, engine blocks, castings,
drums, cores and rolls, using a wide range of available vacuum lifts,
specialized grippers and end-of-arm tooling.
