750lb Engine Block Inspection Station with Electric Rotate

Ergonomic Partners built this custom inspection station for 750-pound engine blocks. Our station allowed our customer to increase efficiency and productivity, reduce lifting and maneuvering time, and improve work accessibility while enhancing safety and worker ergonomics. The tools base, mast, and frame are made of lightweight and sturdy aluminum and high-strength steel, Linatex lined grip pad jaws with a pneumatic grip cylinder, pneumatic lifting cylinder with upper limit switch, two overhead mounted adjustable inspection lights, and a 230VAC/460VAC rotation motor. The control station incorporates, a green / red grip pressure indicator, E-stop, grip / release with interlocking common button controls, 360-degree continuous rotation with precise momentary rotation lever control, and momentary lift / lower controls. The tool and inspection station have three safety systems using a safety switch that prevents release of the engine block before it is fully lowered, interlocking common button, and a pressure sensitive mat that locks out all the controls while operators are standing on it.


Work Positioner to Grip, Flip, and Rotate Pinions for Deburring

Our Ergonomic Partners in-house team of engineers and fabricators built this custom fixture to allow operators to grind, deburr, and clean pinion gear teeth.
