The vertical parts carousel rotates internal shelves from one level to a higher level and opens on the opposite side. This enables an operator on a work stand to load and move parts to various work levels efficiently. The carousel reduces wasted space by minimizing the floor footprint of the parts and tools required for a particular project. This solution aids in aircraft assembly by utilizing a control system that allows continuous motion.
- Fixture shown (unpainted) allows for input of parts to be assembled at level 1, and, output of parts for assembly at level 2
- Control system and fixture allows continuous motion and anti-backdrive
- Tool operation from 8 different locations
