Handling Systems

Handling Systems
A combination of manual, semi-automated and fully automated equipment is typically used to configure a material handling system. In designing a system, you need to consider the type of material being transported, including the size, shape, weight and configuration. Other important considerations include how you will utilize available space, ergonomic considerations for workers using the equipment, flexibility of the equipment and energy consumption of the automation handling system.
Universal Power Conversion offers automation handling systems that are characterized by their robustness, longevity and continuously high quality. Linear axes, rotational axes, rotary modules and grippers with either electric or pneumatic drives form the basis of our standardized Pick & Place handling systems.
