Who is BorgWarner?
BorgWarner is the global leaders in the automotive industry, providing powertrain technologies to improve fuel emissions and performance.
An application was required in their Bradford operation to retrieve grinding discs from a racking area with three shelves. Each grinding disc has a 500mm diameter and weighs between 40kg and 55kg. Each of these is required to be moved over to a workbench which is set at 90 degrees to the racking to allow operatives to build up the final assembly.
As the process and operation are relatively slow, health and safety is paramount. Precision lifting and placement is also very important during this handling process, and for this reason, the Pronomic P model provided the best solution available. The P model offers the most flexibility across the range of units allowing for specific customer requirements.
The Pronomic Lift & Drive models have modular configurations and are assembled at Advanced Handling’s factory where they are tested before delivery to the customer.
As a result of the Pronomic 125P lifting trolley, the overall solution ensured the operation could now be undertaken with increased safety and improved efficiency. The unit can manipulate very precisely and can turn the grinding discs through the 90 degrees required safely and accurately.
