(10011) Herkules Equipment Corporation’s newest Cart Positioner has been designed for an assembly plant’s F2 cart to reduce ergonomic problems for their workers. Operators can easily raise and lower material on their carts to the desired height reducing back strain and other potential injuries while loading or unloading. The cart positioner was designed
(10010) Herkules is a premier supplier of dunnage rack rotates which can provide a continuous supply of material to operators, robots, or forklifts. Powered by air motors or electric motors, this type of equipment is generally used in manufacturing plants or assembly plants which can not afford the lag time between loading and unloading of material.
(10009) Herkules Equipment Corporation manufactures an extensive line of standard and custom Human Lifts to position workers at an optimum height for assembly and manufacturing operations. From small personnel lifts to long adjustable scissor lift platforms, Herkules designs and builds operator positioners to meet the exact needs for efficient and productive workflow.
(10008) Whether you are developing plans for an existing installation or a new facility you will need to understand the compressed air requirement when installing pneumatic scissor lift tables. Many of the Herkules customers complete a comprehensive review of compressed air needs at peak time and off peak times. This information provides the industrial engineers with the knowledge to source the correct size air compressors for the job.
(10007) In this era of fuel-dependant vehicles and utilities, alternative methods of power are constantly being explored. One such application which seems to be growing in popularity is the use of wind turbines. These huge, windmill-like structures can be seen against the horizon in rural areas of the US. Since the technology is relatively new, various methods of “in-field” assembly have been attempted.
(10006) Records show that Herkules Equipment Corporation was among the first companies to manufacture a pneumatic lift table for use in industrial applications around the world. Pneumatic scissor lift tables can use air bags or air cylinders as the mechanical lifting device. The majority of the lift tables use a form of air bag technology. Most manufacturers of pneumatic lift tables use the same air bag technology that is
(10005) Herkules Equipment Corporation worked closely with United Space Alliance (USA) for the upcoming Ares I-X mission by customizing a lift system that enabled rocket engineers to securely load 2400 pound parachutes into a booster rocket. Herkules’ engineering team designed the lift system to meet all of USA’s unique specifications including raised height, travel, foot print, portability and all strict NASA safety standards with a 3 times safety factor. The lifts are currently used at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida.
(10004) Herkules Equipment Corporation’s New Zero Level Lift and Tilt provides an easy method for loading material onto a lift table using a pallet jack. No need to wait for a fork lift or spend money on expensive floor excavation. The lift’s platform is only 3/8” lowered and the lift travels 25.5 inches. The tilt can be operated independently of the lift, positioning materials perfectly within the operator’s reach for better ergonomics.
(10003) Many times customers see the safety skirts on Herkules products and question the need for such a product. Some see it as an unnecessary add on, incurring extra cost when economics discourage purchasing options on equipment. Since statistics have shown that hand injuries remain the most reoccurring injuries in commercial environments, the use of safety skirting has been deemed a necessity in just about all manufacturing environments.
(10002) Lift table technology are key enabling technologies that offer significant opportunities for technological breakthroughs and productivity improvements. Scissor lifts tables exist to extend human capabilities and improve human productivity. In a manufacturing setting, lift table technology is used to bring materials to a worksite and position them where humans can use the materials in a manufacturing process.
