Electric Tooling Solution Integrating Gorbel G-Force® and Cynergy Ergonomics Tooling


This application requires gripping and lifting 90# catalytic converters from a conveyor and setting them into various sized cardboard cartons at floor level. After setting the parts into the cartons for release, the gripper jaws need to stop traveling as soon as they make contact with the sides of the box.  

The Problem

The power required for electric actuator tooling could not be transmitted through the G-360 suspension swivel of the G-Force®.

The Solution

Cynergy worked to developed a custom high amperage slip ring designed to adapt to the G-force® G-360 support swivel. This gives the tooling continuous 360º rotation capabilities.
