Low-cost automation – the mechanical solution

Low-cost automation (LCA) relieves strain on workers and boosts productivity without requiring complex control systems or drives. For example, by connecting together processes with a little skill, you can combine loading and unloading procedures. Karakuri/LCA applications speed up workflows and minimise tiring manual labour by lifting crates for workers.
Let gravity do the work for you! Low-cost automation uses lever principles and integrates moving profiles into frames. Profile Tube System D30 makes applications like these particularly easy to achieve.
Low-cost automation with the Lean Production Building Kit System uses a small number of components to deliver a clear improvement in manual activities. Several processes in assembly and intralogistics operations benefit from this approach. When combined with item roller conveyors, complete shooter solutions can be built that release and accept containers as soon as the transport trolley arrives in the correct position.
Karakuri/LCA applications from Profile Tube System D30 can also be combined easily with the ergonomic item Work Bench System. This means, for example, that work benches can be kitted out with picking procedures that involve the user actuating a lever to lift a transport container to an optimum ergonomic reaching height.
